Career stats

Miller had five strong innings but one that sunk him in his last start. He allowed four hits and as many runs in a 38-pitch third that was the latest example of an inning imploding for him. Walks continue to be a problem for Miller, too.

Masterson had a stretch of 11 straight scoreless innings end in the fifth his last time out when he allowed four runs. He continues to work through mechanical issues, the latest being a tendency to let his arm drag too far behind his body.

Lackey has allowed two earned runs in three of his four starts since joining the club and has stepped up as the workhorse the Cardinals hoped they were acquiring in a Trade Deadline deal. He struck out seven and walked one in his last start.

If not for a late rain delay, Lynn may have made a run at his second career complete game on Wednesday. As it was he pitched seven scoreless innings in his seventh start of such length this season. Lynn has a 1.84 ERA since the All-Star break.

Locke posted a mystifying win Friday in Milwaukee, walking six -- his most since July 26, 2013 -- yet pitching two-hit ball through six. It was his 13th start of at least six innings while allowing fewer than four hits the last two seasons.
