Facing Johnny Cueto definitely brought out the best in the Cardinals’ Lance Lynn. ”It didn’t hurt my feelings one bit beating him,” the right-hander said after working seven scoreless innings against the 15-game winner in St. Louis’ 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday night. I outpitched him tonight, so yeah.” Lynn beat Cincinnati for the third straight time and Jhonny Peralta hit a bases-clearing double for St. Louis. Manager Mike Matheny said he’d anticipated seeing ”how Lance bows his neck” against Cueto.

As a hitter, Jon Jay has been pretty hot lately. As far as getting hit, no one in the majors does it better than the St. Louis Cardinals center fielder. Jay was plunked for a major league-high 15th time with the bases loaded and none out in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday night, forcing pinch-runner Peter Bourjos home with the tie-breaking run as the Cardinals rallied past the sliding Cincinnati Reds 5-4 at Busch Stadium. Jay, whose second-inning single extended his hitting streak to a season-high 11 games, took a 93-mile per hour fastball from J.J. Hoover (1-10) on the leg for the first game-winning RBI of his five-year major league career.

Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is considered day to day with a sore shoulder after a wild four-walk outing Sunday in his last appearance on the mound. Chapman walked all four batters he faced and threw 28 pitches in the Reds’ 10-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies. It was just the second time this season in 39 appearances that Chapman allowed more than one batter to reach via a base on balls. “He’s just a little achy, and it just doesn’t make sense at all for us to keep running him out there,” Reds manager Bryan Price said, according to MLB.com.

The sun was out and the sky was clear around Coors Field. The game between the Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds was called off Saturday night because of a water main break just steps from the primary entrance to the ballpark. The first game will start at 4:10 p.m. EDT and the second at 9:10 p.m. The Rockies originally said the game would be delayed 30 minutes, and that city officials were on their way to fix the issue. Restrooms inside Coors Field were not working and there were only limited concessions as the water was turned off to the stadium.

Cincinnati Reds ace Johnny Cueto was his usual brilliant self on Friday night and came away with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies when Kris Negron capped a record night with a ninth-inning single. The Reds broke a three-game losing streak and won for just the second time in seven games as Cueto (15-6) limited the Rockies to two runs and six hits in eight innings and became the first 15-game winner in the majors. He made his 17th start after a Reds loss, and in those games, Cueto is 10-3 with four no-decisions. Cueto made two huge pitches in the seventh after left fielder Corey Dickerson tied the game at 2 with a double and catcher Wilin Rosario was intentionally walked to load the bases with one out.
