The St. Louis Cardinals will be without one of their starting pitchers for the near-future. The team placed Jordan Hicks on the 15-day injured list yesterday.

Blues Try To Stay Alive In Game Six
The St. Louis Blues will try to stave off playoff elimination once again when they take on the Colorado Avalanche in game six of the second round at Enterprise Center.

Bozak Beats Avs To Keep Blues Alive
The Blues are living to fight another day. St. Louis avoided elimination after a 5-4 overtime win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game Five. Tyler Bozak scored a goal less than four minutes into overtime as St. Louis beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-4 in game five of the second round. Robert Thomas scored with less than a minute left in regulation to tie the game at four and keep the Blues' season going.

Cardinals Host Brewers
The St. Louis Cardinals begin a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at Busch Stadium tonight. The Cardinals are currently in second place in the NL Central with a 24-and-19 record.

Berube Condemns Racist Comments Towards Kadri
Craig Berube is pleading with certain St. Louis Blues fans to end their racist comments and threats towards Nazem Kadri. Berube told reporters yesterday that the comments that the Avalanche center has faced are "in no way acceptable." Kadri is Muslim and of Lebanese descent, and he's been receiving the comments and threats after colliding with St. Louis goaltender Jordan Binnington in game three of the second round. Binnington was injured in the collision and is out for the remainder of the series.
Cardinals Get Blown Out By Toronto
The St. Louis Cardinals couldn't slow the Blue Jays potent hitters in an 8-1 loss at Busch Stadium. Toronto was already up 8-0 by the time St. Louis scored its first run in the bottom of the seventh. Jordan Hicks picked up the loss on the mound, while Brendan Donovan drove in the Cardinals' only run. St. Louis falls to 24-and-19. The Cardinals are off today before starting a series with the Milwaukee Brewers tomorrow.
The Cardinals may be ending their experiment to turn Jordan Hicks into a starting pitcher. Hicks dropped to 1-and-4 last night after giving up four runs in three innings. After the game, manager Oli Marmol told reporters that the team is going to evaluate whether or not they want to keep Hicks in the rotation, or move him back to the bullpen. Hicks as a 5.02 ERA in seven starts this season. As a reliever, he has a career 3.52 ERA.

Genesis Cabrera earned his second win in relief. St. Louis is now 24-and-18, and the club sends Jordan Hicks to the mound against Toronto tonight.
The St. Louis Cardinals will be without some key pieces for the foreseeable future. The team placed starting pitcher Steven Matz and outfielder Dylan Carlson on the injured list yesterday, and catcher Yadier Molina will also miss time after he was placed on the bereavement list to be with his son, who is about to have arm surgery. The team also optioned right-handed pitcher Angel Rondon. In corresponding moves, catcher Ivan Herrera, outfielder Lars Nootbaar, and pitchers Junior Fernandez and Matthew Liberatore were recalled from Triple-A Memphis.
Second Collapse Doom Blues In Game Four
The St. Louis Blues are losing control in their second round series with the Colorado Avalanche.

After four straight Colorado goals, Perron scored again, and Pavel Buchnevich followed that up with a goal before the end of the period, but St. Louis couldn't control the zone in the third period. The Blues are down three games to one in the best-of-seven series, and they must win their next three contests to move on to keep their season alive. Game five is tomorrow night in Denver.
