Cardinals aim for another series win vs. Reds

Sports
A spot in the team record books is on the line Sunday, as well as an opportunity to solidify their playoff positioning. But if the St. Louis Cardinals are to beat the Cincinnati Reds at Busch Stadium and capture their 11th consecutive series, they will probably need a strong start from a guy that recently lost his spot in the rotation. Manager Mike Shildt has opted to give an extra day of rest to the likes of Jack Flaherty, Miles Mikolas and John Gant ahead of their starts Monday through Wednesday in Washington. Shildt is going with righthander Luke Weaver (7-11, 4.59 ERA), who will make his first start since an Aug. 16 loss to the Nationals, which occurred four days after he was scratched with a cut on his right index finger from trying to open a food tray. After starting the season a...

Chicago Cubs hope Cole Hamels can be stopper vs. Cincinnati Reds

CHICAGO -- When the Chicago Cubs traded for Cole Hamels, they figured the veteran starter would add depth to their rotation as they dealt with the uncertainty of Yu Darvish's return. But after the Cubs shut Darvish down for the season earlier this week and with Chicago's offense freshly breaking out of a slump heading into Thursday's series-opener against the Cincinnati Reds at Wrigley Field, Hamels' impressive start to his time with the Cubs may be even more valuable than originally expected. Hamels has allowed just two earned runs in his four Cubs' starts combined and has posted wins in three of his four outings. Now, with the Cubs having lost three of their last four games, getting another steady performance out of Hamels (8-9, 4.00 ERA) on Thursday may just be what the Cubs need as ...

May 16 (UPI) -- Cincinnati Reds star and Canada native Joey Votto apologized Wednesday for negative comments he made about Canadian baseball. The five-time All-Star was a guest on a Yahoo Sports podcast Tuesday when he made the comments. Votto was asked about fellow Canadian James Paxton throwing a no-hitter against the Toronto Blue Jays on May 8 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario. "I don't care almost at all about Canadian baseball," Votto said on the podcast. "I wasn't raised inside of Canadian baseball really ...
