Musial, who died a week ago at the age of 92, was eulogized by Cardinal chairman Bill DeWitt Jr., broadcaster Bob Costas, Andrew Edmonds, one of Musial’s 11 grandchildren, and by Dr. Martin Schwarze, Musial’s son-in-law, during the two-hour mass at the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica

The St. Louis defense limited Nashville to only 13 shots on goal and Patrik Berglund scored on a penalty shot and assisted on a power-play goal by T.J. Oshie to lead the Blues to a 3-0 victory over the Predators.

Musial's death prompts personal memories of why he was The Man

One of my greatest regrets as a baseball writer, and as a life-long fan of the game, is that I never got to see Stan Musial play. I missed him by one year.

The first game I ever saw at the first Busch Stadium was in 1964 when I was eight years old, making the trip from my home in Springfield, Mo., with my mom and older brother. Musial had retired the year before.

LEADOFF QUICK HITTER NEWS

MonDay, July 5, 2015 

 - Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta were named Sunday as starters for the NL team in the All-Star game, the first time either has been elected by the fans to start the game. Holliday has been on the DL since June 9 but he said today he expects to be activated this week before the Cardinals' series in Pittsburgh and is planning on playing in the July 14 game in Cincinnati.

- The pitching staffs and reserves for the All-Star rosters will be announced tonight. Three Cardinals finished second in the fan voting, second baseman Kolten Wong, third baseman Matt Carpenter and catcher Yadier Molina.

- The combination of Lance Lynn – both pitching and on offense - and Tommy Pham sent the Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Padres Sunday at Busch Stadium. Pham hit his first career homer, a two-run shot, and also had an RBI double, each time scoring Lynn, in his third career start. Lynn allowed only three hits and one unearned run in seven innings.

- Before the game the Cardinals placed pitcher Jaime Garcia on the disabled list because of a strained groin. The team had hoped he would be able to pitch Tuesday in Chicago, but instead the starters for the day-night doubleheader will be Tim Cooney and Tyler Lyons.

- Former teammates and good friends John Lackey and Jon Lester will pitch against each other for the first time in their careers tonight in the opener of the Cardinals' four-game series against the Cubs. The Cardinals will then play four games in Pittsburgh before the All-Star break.
