    Cards look to bounce back from 'embarrassing' loss

    Prior to Monday's game against the Cincinnati Reds, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny talked about his message to his ballclub. “This is exciting,'' he said. “A lot of guys come through the major leagues who haven't been in the situation that we're in right now.

Manager Mike Matheny gave him a look in the No. 3 slot against the Cincinnati Reds Monday and Molina hit a sacrifice fly before exiting the blowout loss early. That departure kept him from extending his 11-game hitting streak. He is hitting .370 this month -- and since the All-Star break he is batting .356 with an on-base plus slugging percentage of .889. Jose Martinez, OF-1B: Garbage time afforded this minor league veteran a chance to come off the bench and get another precious big league appearance. He took full advantage of that, getting another hit to improve
