Matt Holliday went 2-for-4 with a solo-home run in the Cardinals 1-0 win over the Cubs Sunday.

Holliday's home run barrage continued again on Sunday as he went yard for the second time in three games, the third in five, and fourth over his past eight. That's a lot on numbers, so let's just sum it up by saying he has hit 40% of his 10 home runs this season over his last eight games.

Adam Wainwright tossed seven scoreless innings with three walks and three strikeouts in the win over the Cubs Sunday.

The strikeouts remain down for Waino as Sunday marked the fifth stratight start he failed to exceed five punch outs, but at least he got back on track after allowing six runs over his last two starts (1-1). With the win on Sunday the former CY Young is now 13-5 on the year with 10 of his 21 starts being scoreless ones, which is good for a 1.92 ERA (third best in MLB).

Matt Adams went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple, four RBI and a run scored during the Cardinals' 6-3 win over the Cubs on Saturday.

Adams had a huge day at the plate Saturday. He's been great this season and has earned consistent playing time (over Allen Craig) with a terrific .319 average to go along with a solid 34 runs, 12 home runs, and 47 RBI's.

Making his Cardinals debut, A.J. Pierzynski went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the Cubs on Saturday.

Pierzynski was great in his debut, and if can continue to hit well, he'll likely see ample playing time, as the only other option right now at catcher for the Cardinals is Tony Cruz, who has been very ineffective at the plate recently. That being said, Pierzynski isn't worth being rostered in most fantasy leagues, as his .254 average and just four home runs aren't very good.

Trevor Rosenthal picked up his 31st save of the season after throwing a scoreless innings against the Cubs on Saturday. He allowed two hits and struck out one.

Rosenthal worked his way out of trouble Saturday, but he can't keep allowing base runners in the ninth. While he has a decent 3.47 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP is not something you want to see. Rosenthal has great stuff, and should be fine the rest of the way, but if he wants to be an elite closer, (which he can be), he'll have to limit the hits.

Shelby Miller gave up two runs on three hits with no walks and three strikeouts over 5.2 innings against the Cubs on Saturday.

If Miller continues to pitch well, he'll likely earn himself a secure role int he Cardinals' rotation. While only three strikeouts aren't great, it was very nice to see Miller walk none, as control has been his biggest issue this season, walking 55 in 110 innings. If he can stop walking guys, Miller can be a solid pitcher for the Cardinals, as he offers great upside.

A.J. Pierzynski is in Saturday's starting lineup for the Cardinals.

Nothing like getting that shiny, new toy, taking it out of the box and getting to play with it immediately! Pierzynski will catch Shelby Miller and bat sixth in the lineup.

Cardinals designate C George Kottaras for assignment.

With the acquisition of A.J. Pierzynski, Kottaras heads back to the minors. He'll stay down there and likely be back up in September when rosters expand and the club can carry three catchers..
