WESTBROOK'S PITCHING, HITTING LEAD CARDINALS

Saturday, 20 July 2013 10:48 Published in Sports

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jake Westbrook pitched 6 1-3 innings of two-run ball and contributed three hits, All-Star Matt Carpenter continued his strong season with three hits and three RBIs, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 9-6 on Friday night.

A career .116 hitter, Westbrook had never had more than one hit in a game. The right-hander, who scored twice and had an RBI, surpassed his hit output for the year with two singles and a double in his three at-bats. That raised his batting from .100 to .217.

On the mound, Westbrook (6-4) scattered eight hits while striking out one and walking four.

After rookie Carlos Martinez allowed three runs in the ninth to make it a three-run game, All-Star Edward Mujica got the last two outs to record his 27th save in 29 chances.

Fellow All-Stars Carlos Beltran and Yadier Molina each drove in two runs for the Cardinals, with Beltran contributing two sacrifice flies and Molina a two-run double in the seventh.

St. Louis reached a season-best 22 games over .500 (58-36) and owns the best winning percentage in the majors (.617).

The Padres' lone All-Star representative, Everth Cabrera, drove in two runs with a two-run single off Westbrook in the seventh. San Diego, which lost 18 of 22 to conclude the first half, fell to 15-32 on the road and 74-149 in St. Louis (6-19 at new Busch Stadium).

Former Cardinal Jason Marquis (9-5) lost his third straight. Marquis, who has not won since beating Arizona 6-4 on June 15, was touched for six runs on eight hits and three walks.

Marquis blanked the Cardinals the first two innings before Westbrook led off the third with a single to center. He later scored on Beltran's sacrifice fly to center.

Two innings later, Westbrook started another rally when he doubled over right fielder Will Venable's head to begin the fifth. Carpenter followed with an RBI double to the gap in left center and he scored on Beltran's sacrifice fly one out later that made it 3-0.

The Cardinals broke it open and chased Marquis by scoring three times in the sixth. With the bases loaded and one out, Westbrook coaxed a single through the middle to drive in Matt Adams. Carpenter then drove home two more with an RBI single to center.

Notes: Edinson Volquez (6-8), who set a new career high by making 20 starts in the first half, pitches his first game in the second half when he faces the Cardinals' Lance Lynn (11-4) Saturday night. . . . San Diego started a 10-day, 10-game road trip Friday. The Padres were 1-9 on their last 10-game trip. . . . Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday missed his fourth straight game due to a lingering right hamstring issue. . . . Padres outfielder Jedd Gyorko was 0-for-12 since coming off the DL before singling in the fourth. . . . Molina double in the seventh was his 28th, matching his output last year.

STEWART REMAINS WITH THE NOTE

Saturday, 20 July 2013 10:38 Published in Sports

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has re-signed forward Chris STewart to a two-year contract.

“We’re excited to have Chris signed for the next two seasons,” said Armstrong.  “He led our team in scoring last season and is entering the prime of his career.  We are expecting big things from him as he continues to grow with our club.”

Stewart, 25, dressed in all 48 games this season leading the Blues with 36 points, 18 goals and six power play goals while tying for the team lead with three game-winning goals and tying for fourth with 18 assists.  In the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Stewart posted one assist and tied for second on the club with 17 shots in six appearances. 

Stewart appeared in his first game with the Blues on Feb. 19, 2010 vs. Anaheim and became just the 5th player in franchise history to score two goals in his debut.  In addition, he posted six goals in his first five games with the Blues marking the best start to a career in franchise history.  Since entering the National Hockey League (NHL) in 2008, Stewart is one of 12 players with at least 200 points and 300 penalty minutes. 

Overall, the 6’2, 231-pound forward has appeared in five NHL seasons accumulating 202 points including 100 goals and 102 assists to go along with 329 penalty minutes in 319 career regular season games while tallying six points (five goals, one assist) in 19 career postseason games.

The Toronto, Ontario native was originally acquired by the Blues along with Kevin Shattenkirk from Colorado on Feb. 19, 2011.  He was drafted by Colorado in the first round, 18th overall, of the 2006 Entry Draft.
