Lance Lynn SP STL 14 Days

Lance Lynn held the Pirates to two runs in 6 2/3 innings to pick up his 10th win Wednesday.

It looked like Lynn would be done when he was hurt on a diving attempt at a popped up bunt in the seventh. He missed the ball, giving the Pirates two on with none out, and he was at 109 pitches anyway. However, he stayed in after a couple of warm up pitches and induced a double play ball from pinch-hitter Matt Hague. He was then replaced by Randy Choate, who got Gregory Polanco to end the frame. The Cards bullpen finished up from there. Lynn is 10-6 with a 3.14 ERA.

Lance Lynn was pounded for seven runs -- six earned -- in two innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Lynn tossed eight shutout innings at Coors Field in his previous turn through the Cardinals' rotation but looked like a completely different guy on Saturday evening at Dodger Stadium. He gave up one Los Angeles run in the first inning -- which could be partially blamed on a Daniel Descalso error -- and then a whopping six runs in the second. Lynn will take an 8-6 record, 3.38 ERA, and 1.32 WHIP into his next outing at home versus the Marlins.

His next start is scheduled to be against the run machine that is the Toronto Blue Jays.

Lance Lynn will have his left knee examined.

Lynn appeared to hyperextend the knee while covering first base early on during Sunday's start. He remained in the game but was blasted for seven runs -- four earned -- over 3 1/3 innings, so it's possible he wasn't feeling 100 percent. As of now, Lynn is in no danger of missing his next start, but check back to make sure he's ready to go.
