News: Lackey pitched six innings, allowing four runs (two earned ) on four hits and one walk while striking out seven batter before picking up a no-decision in Tuesday's game against the Reds. Impact: In Lackey's first four starts with the Cardinals, he has sandwiched in three quality starts around one clunker (that being his start on August 9 at Baltimore, where he allowed nine runs on 13 hits and two walks in five innings pitched). Altogether, Lackey is still having a decent season, with a 3.88 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 135:38 K:BB ratio in 162.1 innings pitched this year. Lackey's next start is set for Monday on the road against the Pirates.(RotoWire, )

News: Lackey did not factor into Thursday's decision, but made a quality start, allowing two runs and five hits over seven innings. Impact: Lackey has made three starts with the Cardinals, and has two great outings under his belt as well as a nine-run stinker. He'll look to build on Thursday's solid start in his next turn, which will come at home against Cincinnati.(RotoWire, )

News: Lackey gave up nine runs on 13 hits over five innings in a losing effort against the Orioles on Saturday night. Impact: Lackey was clobbered early and often by the O's on Saturday but hung around long enough to limit the strain on the St. Louis bullpen. He had a 2-0 lead entering the bottom of the second inning, when he yielded crooked numbers in three of the next four frames thanks to three Baltimore home runs. Lackey has an excellent matchup in his next start, a home date with the Padres on Thursday.(RotoWire, )
