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.
