Major League Baseball has suspended Pirates lefty Jonathan Sanchez for six games and fined him an undisclosed amount for beaning the Cardinals' Allen Craig in Friday's 9-1 loss. Sanchez has appealed the suspension, but maybe the Bucs should consider keeping him off the mound. He has allowed 16 runs on 21 hits and five walks in just 111/3 innings this season. And on Friday, he didn't get a single out, and served up back-to-back homers to Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran, and a single to Matt Holliday before he threw at Craig's head.

CARLOS BELTRAN and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a 2-year contract pending results of a physical, fortifying the team's lineup following the departure of Albert Pujols. The team disclosed the move last night and said it expects to make a formal announcement shortly after the holidays. KMOX, the Cardinals' flagship radio station, reported the deal is for $26 million over 2 years - the same figure cited by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke to the Associated Press.

ST. LOUIS - Randy Wolf outfoxed the St. Louis Cardinals for seven innings to earn his first postseason win at age 35, and the Milwaukee Brewers got two more hits from Ryan Braun in a 4-2 victory Thursday night that evened the National League Championship Series at two games apiece. Matt Holliday and Allen Craig homered for the Cardinals, representing their only runs in the last 16 innings. Francisco Rodriguez allowed a hit in the eighth, and John Axford finished for his second save of the series and third this postseason.

MATT HOLLIDAY hit a tiebreaking home run and Kyle Lohse won his eighth consecutive decision, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Monday night. Holliday led off the sixth inning with his 24th homer, a drive to rightfield off A.J. Burnett that put St. Louis ahead for good at 3-2. Lohse (14-2) pitched five innings and threw 83 pitches before being lifted following a 34-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed two runs and five hits while striking out three and walking none.

AND WE THOUGHT we got rid of this nutty stuff the moment the NLDS ended. But, no, we have to read that the St. Louis Cardinals have gotten squirrelly. The team plans to distribute 40,000 rally towels with a squirrel motif for Game 3 of the NLCS tonight against Milwaukee, in honor of the squirrel(s) that made an appearance at Busch Stadium and Citizens Bank Park during the Cards' series with the Phillies last week. In addition, stuffed Rally Squirrels are available for $5 at the stadium team store, along with "Got Squirrel" T-shirts and additional rally towels.

As Matt Holliday walked off the field following the Cardinals' workout at Citizens Bank Park on Friday afternoon - a session in which he hit only in an indoor cage - his face was robed in uncertainty, probably because he knew that, to some extent, much of St. Louis' hopes rested in the palm of his hand. "I think I'm ready to play," said Holliday, a righthanded hitter and thrower who has been sidelined with an injured tendon in the palm of his right hand. Though the Cardinals hadn't yet made their roster official, indications were that both Holliday and Rafael Furcal would be active for their team's National League division series with the Phillies, which begins Saturday.

ROOKIES IN THE postseason, the Washington Nationals played like poised veterans. The Nationals escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, Tyler Moore blooped a two-out, two-run single in the eighth and Washington beat the defending World Series champion Cardinals, 3-2, Sunday in an NL Division Series opener in St. Louis. The Nationals have just four players with postseason experience. But they have the lead in the best-of-five series. "Not many people have probably watched too many Nationals games, but we have a great starting rotation and a great bullpen," said Ian Desmond, who singled for his third hit in the go-ahead rally.

ST. LOUIS - Never count out the St. Louis Cardinals in October - especially after they lose a series opener. Carlos Beltran hit the last two of the Cardinals' four homers and St. Louis chased an ineffective Jordan Zimmermann early in a 12-4 rout of Washington on Monday that tied their NLDS at one game apiece "We know this offense has the potential to do this," Cardinals rookie manager Mike Matheny said. "It was nice to see this, and hopefully it becomes contagious and the guys just keep going.

NOTHING WAS working for Jake Westbrook, a groundball pitcher who gave up three sacrifice flies. No worries with the St. Louis Cardinals offense ringing up 17 hits against a team that's still waiting for the adrenaline charge that usually comes with changing managers. David Freese's three-run homer snapped the team's seven-game long-ball drought and Matt Holliday's three-run double was the go-ahead blow as St. Louis beat the visiting Houston Astros, 13-5, Thursday to complete a three-game sweep.

ST. LOUIS - For three-and-a-half innings, the Phillies appeared to be on the verge of a win that would have forced you to change the adjectives you used to describe their road trip. At the start of the day, it was successful. But after roaring out to a three-run lead and raising the possibility of flying back to Philadelphia having won six of seven games against the Cardinals and the Braves, it was starting to look stunning. Then, things unraveled. The Cardinals exploded for four runs in the fourth inning, added another in the sixth, and held on for a 5-3 win that salvaged a split of the four-game series at Busch Stadium.

ST. LOUIS - Truth is, there is more than one way to build a World Series contender in the new economic landscape of major league baseball. A quick look at the Cardinals' 4-1 dispatching of the Phillies at Busch Stadium last night might have tempted you to conclude otherwise, but the easy narrative is not always the proper one. Or, at least, not the complete one. Without a doubt, the method behind the Cardinals' considerable success this season...

FOR MOST of the night, a palpable feeling of discontent radiated from the otherwise frigid stands. Citizens Bank Park is a great place to play when you are a member of a winning team. But when expectations are not being met, the frustration in the stands can create some cringe-worthy moments. In the fourth inning on Sunday night, a boisterous section in the leftfield seats zeroed in on 25-year-old rightfielder Domonic Brown after a blooper fell a couple feet in front of him for a base hit. At first there were boos.

Cliff Lee threw his 41st pitch of the third inning, a curveball Daniel Descalso whiffed at for strike three, and the pitcher darted from the mound Saturday as he does at the end of any inning he throws. This was not a quintessential Lee inning - or night. Lee dashed from the wreckage of four runs on three uncharacteristic walks and three singles. The Cardinals built an insurmountable lead, won 5-0, and swiftly eradicated whatever enthusiasm generated by a Phillies victory the night before.

WITH A RUNNER on base and two outs in the seventh inning, a large portion of the 45,092 people at Citizens Bank Park rose from their seats and let out a hearty applause. Since the news had just broke in Boston that one of the Boston Marathon bombers had been caught, one observer did a quick sweep of the ballpark with his eyes to see whether it had been announced on a video screen at the ballpark. But, no, this wasn't about the manhunt that had almost all of America glued to its televisions from the early morning until after sunset.

SAN FRANCISCO - Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants saved their season once more, pushing St. Louis to a winner-take-all Game 7 in the NL Championship Series. Turns out the defending champion Cardinals aren't the only team that's tough to put away in October. Vogelsong, a former star at Octorara High and Kutztown, struck out a career-best nine batters in another postseason gem, and the Giants avoided elimination for a second straight game by beating St. Louis, 6-1, on Sunday night.

Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run double and Buster Posey drove in his first run of the series with a groundout in the first inning as San Francisco struck early to support Vogelsong.

ST. LOUIS - Barry Zito pitched the San Francisco Giants back into the NL Championship Series, dominating into the eighth inning of a 5-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night that narrowed their deficit to three games to two. The defending champion Cardinals might have thrown away a chance to clinch a second straight World Series trip. Pitcher Lance Lynn's toss on a possible force-out deflected off the second-base bag, paving the way for the Giants' four-run fourth.

ST. LOUIS - Matt Holliday broke out of a postseason slump with two RBIs on Thursday night, helping the St. Louis Cardinals take a 6-1 lead over the San Francisco Giants after six innings in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. Holliday, hitting .167 with no RBIs in the NLCS entering the game, followed Jon Jay's single and Matt Carpenter's walk in the first inning with a single. Allen Craig, 0 for 9 through the first three games, added a sacrifice fly in the inning against Tim Lincecum, though Angel Pagan prevented more damage with a shoestring catch on Craig's sinking liner.
