Adams' big hit off bench keeps Cards on track
Matt Adams' pinch-hit, two-run double in the eighth inning sent the Cardinals to their fourth win in five games, inching them to 4 1/2 games behind the Cubs in the NL Central while keeping a 1 1/2-game edge for the second NL Wild Card spot. Carlos Martinez pitched around a leadoff double in the ninth for his fourth save, and Kolten Wong, who exited late in the game with cramping, had two RBI hits off Giants ace Madison Bumgarner to set up the late drama at Busch Stadium.

Cards, Jose Martinez team up to aid Venezuela
The Cardinals announced Friday that they're teaming up with Jose Martinez and the four-star Charity Navigator organization to sell special-priced $10 tickets for the upcoming series with the Brewers from Monday through Wednesday, with 75 percent of the proceeds to be donated to Martinez's relief efforts in Venezuela.

Waino faces Giants in high-stakes start
In what could be his last start in a Cardinals uniform, Adam Wainwright (2-3, 3.72 ERA) will take the ball this afternoon when St. Louis' three-game series against the Giants continues from Busch Stadium. Wainwright was masterful in his last outing -- his second off the DL -- blanking the Dodgers over six innings. But he's not guaranteed another start, and his contract ends this offseason. The Cardinals hold a 1 1/2-game lead for the final NL Wild Card spot with eight games remaining. Rookie right-hander Dereck Rodriguez (6-4, 2.30) starts for San Francisco with first pitch slated for 12:05 p.m. CT.

Flaherty has rare rough start in loss to Braves
The plan has been scripted out for weeks now and executed through the club's fluid use of a sixth starter this month. It will all lead, the Cardinals hope, to a place where rookie Jack Flaherty is ready to take the ball in the team's most crucial game. What Flaherty couldn't do on Wednesday, however, was lift the Cardinals to a series sweep that would have inched them closer to needing the rookie right-hander on such a stage. Instead, the Braves took a 7-3 victory at SunTrust Park that snapped their four-game skid and ended the Cardinals' eight-game winning streak in Atlanta.

Cardinals call on No. 22 prospect Gallegos
While he celebrated Memphis' first Triple-A National Championship on Tuesday night, Giovanny Gallegos learned that, unlike his teammates, his season wasn't over. Gallegos will join the Cardinals in St. Louis on Friday as the club's final September callup.

Khrush's walk-off HR cuts A's magic number to 3
It was Mark Canha who delivered a pinch-hit, two-run homer that tied the game in the sixth, and Khris Davis who ended it with his second homer of the night and Major League-leading 45th of the season, a walk-off solo shot off right-hander Matt Magill for a 7-6 series-opening win over the Twins on Friday night. The A's magic number dropped to three with their third straight win, though they remained 1 1/2 games behind the Yankees for the top American League Wild Card spot following New York's win against the Orioles. They also sit 3 1/2 back of the first-place Astros in the AL West with eight to play.

Defending champion Astros clinch playoff berth
Yuli Gurriel logged a career-high seven RBIs with a grand slam, a two-run homer and a single in his first three at-bats, while Gerrit Cole racked up 12 strikeouts in a strong start to help the Astros clinch their third postseason berth in four seasons. Angels starter Andrew Heaney gave up the homers to Gurriel and went just three innings, while Mike Trout clubbed his 37th homer for the Halos.

Braves cut magic number to 2 in comeback win
The Braves took another step toward a National League East title as they claimed a win over the Phillies on Friday night at SunTrust Park. Ozzie Albies fueled a five-run seventh with a home run, and Johan Camargo capped it with a two-run single. The Braves are 7 1/2 games in front of the Phillies, and their magic number stands at two. Wilson Ramos and Jose Bautista drove in runs to put the Phillies ahead, 4-1, in the seventh, but Pat Neshek and Luis Avilan struggled in the bottom of the inning.

CC has O's number, and Yanks' is at 2
CC Sabathia pitched six innings of two-run ball as the Yankees held off the Orioles. Sabathia's 20th career win over Baltimore dropped New York's magic number for a postseason berth. Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hicks homered against former Yankees farmhand Yefry Ramirez, who was chased in the fourth after six runs. Austin Wynns, Renato Nunez and DJ Stewart went deep in an O's rally that fell short.

After 3-HR 6th, Brewers' magic number at 5
Milwaukee's Travis Shaw, Mike Moustakas and Erik Kratz homered in the sixth inning as part of six-run rally off Pirates relievers Edgar Santana and Steven Brault that gave the Brewers a win in the series opener on Friday night at PNC Park. Josh Bell and Corey Dickerson hit home runs for Pittsburgh in the loss. The game was delayed for two hours and 14 minutes by rain in the fifth inning.

Rockies rally to cut into Dodgers' division lead
Friday night was like most of the rest of this Rockies road trip -- this time with starting pitcher German Marquez delivering in sterling fashion, with 11 strikeouts -- only with one delightful plot twist. RBI singles by David Dahl and Nolan Arenado and a two-run hit from Ian Desmond lifted the Rockies to a 6-2 victory over the D-backs at Chase Field. Colorado improved to 1 1/2 games behind the West-leading Dodgers and remained 1 1/2 games behind the Cardinals for the second Wild Card.
