Valle tops Lockwood in Class 1 semifinal
Photos by Erik Herzog

STE. GENEVIEVE -- On a cold and windy Saturday afternoon in Ste. Genevieve the Valle Catholic Warriors shut down Lockwood in the second half and ground their way to another state title game with a 41-27 semi-final win.

Valle (12-1) will face undefeated Monroe City for the Class 1 championship in a 3:00 pm outdoor game this Saturday on Faurot field in Columbia.

The Panthers who finished second in the state last year earned a return trip to the final beating East Buchanan 28-14 in their semi-final matchup.

The Warrior defense held Lockwood (11-3) to negative yardage in the second half. The Tigers had only seven runs in the second half and failed to complete any of their six pass attempts.

Their one score in the second half came on a kick off return with 3:06 left to play.

Carter Roth carried a career high 36 times, 23 in the second half, for 175 yards and three scores for Valle.

Leading 27-21 the Warriors shelved their passing game for a time consuming running game in the second half Saturday.

Valle took their first second half possession and went on a 14-play drive with Senior quarterback Mason Skaggs scoring from the one. A two-point conversion pass to Tyler Blum put the Warriors up 35-21 with 5:27 in the third.

Roth added a one-yard TD with 3:20 in the fourth to give Valle a 41-21 lead.

Logan Sparkman's ensuing kick off return would be the Tiger's only big play and score of the second half.

The first half of the game was exciting as the Tigers used big plays to challenge the Warriors.

Valle scored on their opening possession as Skaggs hit Owen Schweigert on a 73-yard TD pass. It was Schweigert’s only catch of the day but it put Valle on top 7-0 with 10:57 in the first.

A 20-yard punt return to the Valle 35 set up the Tigers first score. Quarterback Paxton Masterson ran in from seven yards out to tie the game with 2:42 in the period.

Tyler Blum set up the Warriors next score as he caught a fourth down pass at the Tiger one. Roth scored on the next play and Valle led 14-7 with 10:59 in the second.

A 32-yard pass to Blum set up a three-yard TD run by Skaggs and gave Valle a 21-7 lead with 7:46 before the half.

But the Tigers responded as Sparkman took a 73-yard pass play to the Valle one and they scored on the next play and it was 21-14 with 3:29 before the break.

Lockwood tied the game when Sparkman scored on a 77-yard TD pass with 1:40 before the break.

The two teams traded interceptions in the last minute of the half but Valle added another score before the intermission.

Ryan Grein's 46-yard reception down to the Lockwood two set up a Roth TD run with 31 seconds left and Valle took a 27-21 lead into the half.

Skaggs did not attempt a second half pass but finished with 10 completions on 15 attempts for 207 yards.

He also ran for 39 yards on 18 carries.

Skaggs longest completion was to Schweigert. Blum added four catches for 47 yards.

Valle ran for 241 yards in the game on 61 attempts.

Jacob Bieser led the Valle defense with nine tackles,

Brendan Meyer and Dalton Kertz each had eight, and Colin Grass had seven.

Valle, who stumbled in the semi-finals last year with a loss to the eventual state champion Penny, will be seeking their 15th state championship this Saturday.

Show-Me-Bowl Tickets will go on sale today in the Valle High School Lobby from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.

Thayer (9-4) has not won their almost annual battle with Valle since 2008.

Saturday's encounter was not with out a casualty.

Warrior Senior quarterback Mason Skaggs suffered what has been termed a minor concussion and did not return for the second half.

The Warriors, leading 26-10 at the break, called in sophomore Chase Dunlap to quarterback the second half.

Dunlap went 4 of 10 in the air for 45 yards and ran for 38 yards on 8 carries taking most of the second half snaps.

He never fumbled or threw an interception as the Warriors milked the game clock on nearly every play.

The Warrior defense refused to bend and a fourth down sack ended the Bobcats only second half scoring threat at the Valle 15 with 7:00 left in the game.

A roughing the passer penalty against Thayer on a fourth down play set up the Warriors final score as Sophomore running back Colin Grass powered in from six yards out with 1:16 to play.

Skaggs led the Warriors thru the first half hitting 18 of his 29 passing attempts for 241 yards and 3 scores with one interception. He also ran 10 times for 35 yards.

Valle held Thayer without a first down and took a 20-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Warriors scored on their first possession on a fourth down pass from the Thayer two and led 7-0 with 9:37 in the first.

A 30-yard completion to Ryan Grein set up a 15-yard TD pass to Grein on the next play. The extra point kick was missed but the Warriors led 13-0 with 5:29 left in the first.

A 35-yard TD pass to Grein gave Valle a 20-0 lead with 2:53 left in the period.

The Warriors had a 25-yard TD pass early in the second called back due to a holding penalty.

A punt by the Bobcats to the Valle four led to Thayer's first points of the game.

Skaggs operating out of the shotgun in his own endzone was called for intentional grounding resulting in a two-point safety with 3:14 in the second.

A 47-yard pass completion to the Valle four set up the Bobcats only TD. The four-yard TD pass with 2:54 before the half was only their second completion of the game. A two-point conversion made it 20-10 with 2:54 before the break.

After exchanging interceptions Skaggs hit Tyler Blum on a 34-yard completion to set up a three-yard TD run by Skaggs with 29 seconds to play in the half and the Warriors took a 26-10 lead.

The Valle quarterbacks led the team in rushing. Chris Loida picked up 30 yards on seven carries, Grass added 27 yards on six carries.

Grein led Valle recievers with 10 catches for 137 yards while Blum had 4 receptions for 69 yards and Carter Roth had four for 52 yards.

Photos by Erik Herzog

STE. GENEVIEVE -- Valle Catholic captured their 10th consecutive Class 1, District 1 title with a 42-18 win over the Hayti Indians in Ste. Genevieve Friday night.

The Warriors (10-1) will travel to Thayer (9-3) on Saturday for a state quarterfinal matchup.

Thayer upset undefeated Pierce City 14-0 in their semi-final to earn their third consecutive district title.

Senior quarterback Mason Skaggs ran for three scores and passed for another Friday while the Valle defense held the speedy Indians in check.

Valle jumped on the Indians early with 21 points in the first quarter and took a 28-6 lead into the half.

Hayti's only points of the half came on a 23-yard TD pass from Chrivontae Moore to John Agnew with two seconds before the break.

Carter Roth capped off Valle's 13-play opening drive with a five yard TD run and the Warriors went up 7-0 with 7:26 in the first.

The Indians fumbled their first offensive play and Owen Schweigert recovered at the Hayti 31. Helped by a pass interferenee call Valle scored four plays later on a 10-yard TD pass from Skaggs to Roth and it was 14-0 with 6:16 in the first.

Skaggs scored on a six-yard TD run with 2:31 in the first as Valle took a 21-0 lead.

A 40-yard half-back pass from Roth to Ryan Grein set up another Valle score early in the second. Grein ran in from seven yards out to give Valle a 28-0 lead with 11:04 before the half.

The Valle defense set up another score early in the third. Schweigert recorded his second fumble recovery at the Hayti 14 and on the next play Skaggs ran in to make it 35-6 with 7:15 in the period.

Moore broke a 73-yard run late in the third down to the Valle two and then passed to Ivory Winters for the Indians second score with 2:39 in the quarter.

But the Warriors had the game well in hand. Valle went on a 15-play time consuming drive in the fourth. Skaggs finished off the march with a one-yard TD run and a 42-12 lead with 6:25 left in the contest.

Hayti added a late TD against Valle reserves on a 43-yard TD pass with 1:02 remaining.

"This was one of the better Hayti teams we have seen," said Valle coach Judd Naeger.

"They came out in a different defense than we prepared for. We had expected them to play us man," he said after the game.

Last year Valle beat the Indians by a similar score 41-24.

Skaggs was 12 of 17 in the game for 103 yards and he also led the Warriors in rushing with 121 yards on 25 carries. On defense he had an interception.

Roth who rushed for 62 yards on 14 carries ran for one score and caught a TD pass.

Brendan Meyer had 11 tackles and Jacob Bieser recorded 10 for the Valle defense.

"Our defense played hard. They showed great effort," Naeger said.

Winters ran for 90 yards, had 115 yards in the air and scored twice for the Indians.

"He was fast and a load. He has college scouts watching him," Naeger said.

Hayti was their own worse enemy at times in the game as they suffered from 16 penalty calls.

The Valle coach expects a dog fight at Thayer.

"They play in a tough conference, " he said.

Valle won 35-8 last year. The previous year it was closer but Valle prevailed 17-10.

A player said after their win that the chant would be the same for the Bobcats this year. BV which stands for beat Valle.

The last time the Bobcats were able to do that was in 2008.

One of Thayer's losses this year was to Hayti. The Indians won that game 56-14.

Thayer is led by senior running back Garrett Young who scored twice and ran for 112 of Thayer’s 187 total yards on 27 carries against Pierce City.

The game has a 1:00 pm kickoff this Saturday.

Photos by Erik Herzog

STE. GENEVIEVE -- Valle Catholic dispatched of Portageville with a 56-12 rout Friday night in a Class 1, District 1 semi-final in Ste. Genevieve.

The Warriors (9-1) will host Hayti this Friday as they seek their ninth-straight district title.

The Indians, who are also state ranked, won their semi-final over Chaffee 66-7.

"The kids did an outstanding job tonight, said Warrior coach Judd Naeger.

Naeger was pleased with his defense after they held Portageville (5-6) without a first down thru much of the first half.

Carter Roth opened the scoring with a one-yard TD with 9:02 in the first and with 6:00 minutes in the period Valle went ahead 14-0 on a fourth down 36-yard TD strike from Mason Skaggs to Chris Loida.

A 42-yard pass to Roth set Skaggs up for a one-yard TD early in the second (11:30) and it was 22-0 after Ryan Grein's 2-point conversion.

The Warriors got the ball right back and Jacob Bieser scored on a 9-yard TD play with 10:57 in the second.

Chris Loida's 52-yard TD run made it 35-0 with 9:14 before the half.

Tyler Blum's interception and return inside the Portageville ten set up a six-yard TD pass to Blum and it was 46-0 with 8:06 in the second.

The Bulldog's got on the board with 4:06 before the break when Ian Torrey scored on a six-yard run and it was 41-6.

Roth broke a 50-yard run and then scored from four yards out to make the half-time score 49-6.

Both Skaggs and Roth ran for more than 100 yards in their first half of play and Naeger rested his starters in the second half.

"We like to throw the football but you run what the defense gives you so we ran more than usual tonight," Naeger said.

Kellen Blum's five-yard TD run made it 56-6 with 4:27 in the third. He ran for 66 yards in the game.

Lamar Alexander's 60-yard burst with 2:44 to play gave the Bulldogs their final points.

Skaggs in his one half of work was 6 of 12 for 107 yards. He also ran for 126 yards on 15 carries.

Roth had 121 yards on only 11 carries. He also had two receptions for 53 yards.

Chase Dumlap came in to play quarterback in the second half and ran for 50 yards on five carries.

Valle compiled 588 yards of total offense in the game with most of it coming in the second quarter when they scored 35 points.

Brendan Meyer led the defense with six solo tackles. Tyler Blum had an interception and Collin Grass recovered a fumble.

Hayti's two losses this year were to class 2 schools Caruthersville (39-32) and Malden (56-32).

Valle beat Hayti 41-24 last season.

The Hayti at Valle game for the District 1 championship this Friday night will be broadcast on KSGM AM 980 and ksgm980.com.

He broke a 47-yard TD run early in the fourth (11:27) as Central went ahead 28-8.

A 64-yard TD run by Will Hopkins made it 35-8 and dimmed the Dragons chances with 7:55 to play.

LAMAR -- Lamar rolled over Valle Catholic 55-7 Saturday afternoon in Lamar.

Lamar (6-0) the top ranked team in class 2 scored early on long runs to take a 14-0 lead in the 1st.

Trailing 21-0 Valle drove to the Tiger's three yard line in the 2nd but could not score on the physical Lamar defense.

Valle (6-1) managed their only score late in the 2nd on a Mason Skaggs 10-yard TD pass to Carter Roth and trailed at the half 28-7.

It was only the third TD scored on the Tigers this season who extended their winning streak to 42 games. They have won six class 2 titles and are favored to repeat again this season.

Lamar dominated the second half scoring 12 in the 3rd and adding 15 more in the final period.

One Tiger TD run was a 90-yarder another followed a blocked punt.

Both teams rested starters after Lamar built their 35-point lead.

Skaggs hit 15 of his 33 passing attempts for 228 yards but had two interceptions.

Roth led Valle receivers with 8 catches for 165 yards.

Blum was held to only 2 catches for 19 yards.

The Warrior rushing attack was held to only 9 yards on 16 attempts.

It is believed to have been the first running clock on a Valle football team and the worst loss for the school in over 30 years.

Valle was the states top ranked class 1 team going into the contest but they were no match Saturday for the Tigers.

The Warriors look to regroup when they travel to Herculaneum (1-6) this Friday night.

Valle beat the Blackcats last season 57-0.

Football: SGHS 33, PHS 21

STE. GENEVIEVE -- The Ste. Gen Dragons celebrated homecoming Friday with a 33-21 win over the PHS Pirates in a battle of the green teams.

The Dragons (3-4, 3-1) scored on their opening possession when Chad Donze found Gabe Gremminger on an 18-yard TD pass and Ste Gen took a 7-0 lead with 9:59 on the clock.

The Pirates (4-3,1-3) threatened when quarterback Bryce Flaherty ran to the 10 but PHS would turn the ball over on downs.

The Dragons increased their lead early in the second on a 2-yard TD run by defensive lineman Isaac Boyd and lead 14-0 with 11:19 before the half.

A personal foul penalty against Ste. Gen on a fourth and one set up a 32-yard TD run by Logan Thaxton and with 6:52 the Pirates trailed 14-7.

Donze again found Gremminger on a 22-yard TD pass with 4:57 in the second as Ste. Gen increased their lead to 20-7.

The Dragons surprised the Pirates recovering an onside kickoff that set up another scoring drive before the half.

Luke Brewster's 3-yard TD run at the 2:09 mark gave the Dragons a 26-7 lead at the break.

Donze appeared to put the game away with a 27-yard TD pass again to Gremminger for a 33-7 Ste Gen lead with 6:14 in the third.

But the Pirates refused to go away.

Derek Kirn scored from 3 yards out with 10:58 in the 4th and it was 33-14.

The Pirates then recovered an onside kick and on the next play Flaherty raced 48 yards to make it 33-21 with 10:46 to play.

A late 75-yard TD by the Dragons was called back due to a holding penalty.

Flaherty led the Pirates with 86 yards rushing on 11 carries. He also added 32 yards on 3 of 7 passing. His favorite target was Richardet who caught two for 29 yards.

Thaxton ran for 61 yards on 7 carries.

Jerome Simpson had 10 tackles to lead the Pirates while Caleb Harris and Logan Thaxton both had nine.

Richardet had a pick on defense.

Donze threw for 261 yards and 3 TD's for the Dragons.

With the win Ste Gen secured a second place finish in the conference while PHS was fourth.

At the half, Mattilyn Helms was announced as Ste. Genevieve’s homecoming queen. Her escort was senior Luke Brewster.

Girls basketball team participates in Wisconsin shoot out

STE. GENEVIEVE -- The girls’ basketball team at Ste. Genevieve High School held a Road Block Fundraiser in late May to raise money to send the team to Wisconsin to participate in The Dells Basketball Shoot Out.

This event is a three-day journey that usually has the team playing a total of nine games.

This year, however the team picked up an extra game to help out the tournament director and another team that was left without an opponent after a team decided not to participate.

The SGHS girls who participated in The Dells Basketball Shoot Out played full games with two halves against teams from private schools, public schools and traveling teams from the Wisconsin area and outside of state.

The team also received a donation from Western Catholic Union that matched up to $500 of the proceeds they raised during the Road Block Fundraiser.

Donnie Stuppy presented the team with the check yesterday in the SGHS Common during advisory.

The SGHS Girls Basketball and Coach Banks truly appreciates the generous donation and assistance from Western Catholic Union and its members.

The Dells Basketball Shoot Out gives the girls the opportunity to play against strong, competitive teams to help prepare them for the upcoming season. But, one of the most important factors of this event is the team bonding that takes place in Wisconsin.

New players coming in to the program get to know and build rapport with experienced players. This event helps the team begin to establish team identity, personal growth, experience on the court and the opportunity for the families to get acquainted and spend quality time with their daughters.

The SGHS girls’ basketball team is proud to be a part of the Ste. Genevieve community.

The girls, Coach Banks and JV Coach Jordanna Walk are extremely thankful for the support of their parents and organizations like Western Catholic Union. This support does make a difference in lives of these girls.

Caruthersville stopped the Warriors on a fourth and ten at the Tiger 24 with 2:46 to play.

Caruthersville then drove 76 yards before the drive stalled allowing Valle to run out the clock.

Skaggs hit 19 of his 33 pass attempts in the game for 423 yards. His favorite target was Grein who caught six for 164 yards. Tyler Blum also had six catches for 128 yards and Roth hauled in six for 96 yards.

The Tigers's Golliday was 22 of 39 in the game for 333 yards. Strawn was his favorite target hauling in six passes for 156 yards. Deandre Davis was the Tiger's top runner with 123 yards on 18 carries.

Football: Valle 35, Ste. Genevieve 6

STE. GENEVIEVE -- Before a huge crowd the Valle Catholic Warriors won the 54th Old Settlement Classic Friday night beating their cross-town rivals at Ste. Genevieve high school 35-6.

The game featured a half time show honoring the 1992 Valle and Ste. Gen teams that both won state titles that year. The Dragons only loss that year was to Valle.

The Warriors (2-0) put the game away early against the (0-2) Dragons as they rang up 28 points in the first quarter.

Mason Skaggs finished off a 12-play drive with a one-yard quarterback keeper and Valle led 7-0 at the 7:46 mark.

The Dragons fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Valle's Carter Roth ran 10-yards on the next play to give the Warriors a 14-0 lead with 7:34 in the first.

Roth made it 21-0 on a four-yard TD run with 5:40 to play in the period.

A long pass completion to Tyler Blum to the Ste. Gen four yard line set up Skaggs for another one-yard TD and with 2:57 left in the first it was 28-0.

An interception by Blum at the Dragon 46 led to another Warrior scoring drive and Skaggs found a wide open Owen Schweigert on a 13-yard TD pass with 5:14 in the second as Valle took a 35-0 lead into the break.

Gabe Gremminger's 11-yard TD run erased a running clock with 5:14 to play in the second and would be the Dragons only score of the night.

While the Dragons could not keep Valle out of the endzone they were successful in shutting down the Warrior running attack as Valle averaged only 1.5 yards a carry.

Roth was held to 12 yards on eight carries, but the running back did have three catches for 71 yards.

Ryan Grein led Valle receivers with 10 catches for 119 yards.

Skaggs hit 19 of his 32 pass attempts for 294 yards.

Sophomore Logan Gegg made his first varsity start at quarterback for the Dragons. He managed only three completions on 14 attempts but lead Ste. Gen with 36 yards rushing

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday afternoon that John Mozeliak has been promoted to President of Baseball Operations for the team, while Michael Girsch has been promoted to Vice-President & General Manager of the club. Both Mozeliak and Girsch have agreed to contracts that will run through the 2020 season.

"It is as important to maintain outstanding talent in the front office as it is on the playing field," said Bill DeWitt Jr., Principal Owner and Chief Executive Officer of the St. Louis Cardinals. "Our success as an organization is built upon our continuity in leadership and today’s announcement ensures we keep two of the best young talents in our game for years to come."

While other Major League Clubs have had Presidents of Baseball Operations, today’s announcement is a first for the Cardinals and is in keeping with an industry that continues to grow and prosper. As President of Baseball Operations, Mozeliak will be responsible for the department, while Girsch will handle the day to day work of the team as the General Manager.

"Mike Girsch is more than ready to take over the daily operations of this department, while I am excited to focus on more strategic goals of the organization," said Mozeliak, President of Baseball Operations for the St. Louis Cardinals. "Our entire group is fortunate to work for Bill DeWitt Jr, a visionary leader who has invested heavily in creating an organization that values innovation and demands excellence in every aspect of its operations."

During his tenure as General Manager, the Cardinals have advanced to the postseason six times, winning a World Championship in 2011, and the National League Championship in 2013. The Cardinals have twice been recognized by Baseball America as the Organization of the Year (2011 & 2013). The prestigious honor recognized the Cardinals for their success in scouting and player development. Mozeliak was named Executive of the Year in 2011 by MLB.com.

"I look forward to working with Mo, Bill and our entire team to bring another World Championship to St. Louis," said Girsch, General Manager "I have enjoyed the opportunity to work directly with Mo and Bill, and I am looking forward to this new challenge. "

Girsch, 41, is an 11-year veteran of the Cardinals front office who has served as the team’s Assistant General Manager for seven seasons (2011 – 2017). As the team’s Assistant General Manager, Girsch assisted Mozeliak with Major League player transactions and player evaluations, and helps oversee all aspects of Baseball Operations, including amateur and pro scouting, player development, international operations and baseball development. Girsch joined the Cardinals in 2006, starting his career with a two year stint as the Coordinator of Amateur Scouting. In 2008, he was named Director of Baseball Development, and focused on assisting Baseball Operations via internet applications, analytical models and decision support tools. He led the department for three years before his promotion to Assistant General Manager in January 2011.

Prior to joining the Cardinals, Girsch earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Girsch and his wife Kelly, reside in Webster Groves with their four children.

Cards ink Stephen Piscotty to multi-year pact

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Monday that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Stephen Piscotty on a six-year contract (2017-2022) that includes a club option for the 2023 season. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Having Stephen Piscotty join a number of our current players who are also under contract into the foreseeable future allows us to continue to maintain the level of consistency that has been so important to our organization’s success," stated Cardinals’ Chairman Bill Dewitt, Jr.

With today’s signing, Piscotty joins eight of his current teammates who are also under contract thru at least the 2020 season - Matt Carpenter, Brett Cecil, Dexter Fowler, Jedd Gyorko, Mike Leake, Carlos Martinez, Yadier Molina and Kolten Wong.

"Stephen is a steady player, who we feel embodies the consistent, hard-working style that will be a constant in our lineup for many years to come," said Cardinals’ Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "He is always looking to grow and develop his game and has already exhibited the strong traits of a leader."

Piscotty, 26, was drafted by the Cardinals in the supplemental first round (36th player overall) of the 2012 First Year Player Draft out of Stanford University. Since making his Major League debut in July of 2015, Piscotty has compiled a .282 batting mark with 29 home runs and 124 RBI in 217 games.

Piscotty led the team in games played (153), runs scored (86), RBI (85) and game-winning RBI (10) last season while swatting 22 HR’s to go along with his .273 batting mark. For his efforts, Piscotty was selected as the Cardinals nominee for the prestigious Hank Aaron Award that is given annually to the top hitter in each league. Piscotty was also chosen as the Cardinals representative for the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s (MLBPAA) "Heart and Hustle" Award in 2016.

Piscotty has been especially tough in the clutch, batting .357 with two outs and runners in scoring position during his career, ranking 3rd in the majors over the past two (2015-16) seasons.

Cardinals and Molina reach agreement

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals reached agreement today with Yadier Molina, considered to be among the greatest players in franchise history, on a three-year (2018-2020) contract extension. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Yadier Molina has demonstrated for many years his importance to the Cardinals organization and his ability to perform at a consistently high level on some of the games’ biggest stages," stated Cardinals’ Chairman Bill Dewitt, Jr. "We are pleased to announce on this special Opening Day, that Yadier will remain a St. Louis Cardinal for several more years, as he continues to add to his many career accomplishments and his franchise legacy."

Molina, 34, has spent his entire 13-year career (2004-16) with St. Louis after being drafted in the 4th round of the 2000 free-agent draft out of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico. Since debuting with the Cardinals in 2004, Molina has compiled a .285 career batting average with 108 home runs and 703 RBI in 1,611 games played.

Molina has been selected to seven National League All-Star teams (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and has garnered eight Rawlings Gold Glove awards (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and four Rawlings Platinum Glove awards (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015) for defensive excellence.

"It is with great satisfaction that we are able to announce today that Yadier Molina will remain in his proper place as the centerpiece of our team for the next several seasons," said Cardinals’ Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "His experience, leadership, work ethic and special ability to help bring out the best in those around him are qualities we value greatly, and they will remain important as we seek to win not only now, but also in the coming years, when many of our organization’s top young pitchers begin to emerge at the Major League level."

The two-time World Series Champion (2006, 2011) has appeared in a franchise-record 89 postseason games and owns a team-record 90 career hits in the postseason, including a dramatic two-run homer in the 9th inning of the Cardinals 3-1 National League Championship Series Game 7 win over the New York Mets in 2006 that helped propel the Cardinals to the World Series.

Molina has received votes for the N.L. Most Valuable Player award in five seasons (2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2016), including top-5 finishes in 2012 (4th) and 2013 (3rd). Molina was the recipient of the National League Silver Slugger award in 2013 when he batted a career-best .319 with 12 HR’s and 80 RBI.

Yadier appeared in a career-high 147 games last season, batting a team-best .307 (8th in N.L.), as he became just one of nine catchers in Major League history to have compiled five or more seasons with a .300 or better batting mark - joining Ivan Rodriguez, Mike Piazza, Ted Simmons, Mickey Cochrane, Joe Mauer, Victor Martinez, Thurman Munson and Bill Dickey.

Molina led all MLB catchers in innings caught (1,218.1) last season, his 9th-straight season with over 1,000 innings. He also set single-season bests for games (146), starts (142), total chances (1,175), putouts (1,113) and fielding pct. (.998).

Yadier enters the 2017 season ranked among the majors all-time catching leaders in games caught (1,582), innings caught (13,254.0), putouts (10,470) and total chances (11,377). Molina also ranks among the Cardinals all-time leaders in games played (1,611-10th), hits (1,593-13th), doubles (308-12th), home runs (108-19th) and RBI (703-13th). He is one of just 34 catchers in Major League history to have amassed 1,500 career hits with his 1,593 hits ranking 25th all-time among Major League catchers.

Molina is poised to make his 13th-consecutive Opening Day start later this evening, trailing only Cardinals’ Hall of Famers Stan Musial (18, 1946-63) and Lou Brock (15, 1965-79).

Molina is the younger brother of former Major League catchers Bengie and Jose Molina – the only trio of brothers to have each won a World Series Championship.

Yadier participated in his fourth World Baseball Classic last month, leading the Puerto Rican Team to the tournament’s Championship Game, and he was named to the All-World Baseball Classic Team for the second time in his career (was also selected in 2013).

Entering the 2017 season, Yadier ranks 10th all-time among native Puerto Rican’s in career batting average (.285) and he is one of just 20 players from his homeland to have reached the 1,500 career hit plateau. Yadi currently stands 20th in RBI (703) among his countrymen, just eight RBI back of his brother Bengie (711).

At the completion of this contract in 2020, Yadier would join Hall of Famers Stan Musial (22 years; 1941-63) and Bob Gibson (17 years; 1959-1975) as the lone players to have spent 17 or more seasons solely as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cardinals ink Carlos Martinez to new deal

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Thursday that they have signed All-Star pitcher Carlos Martinez to a five-year contract (2017-21) that also includes club options for 2022 and 2023. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. With Thursday’s signing, the team and Martinez avoid salary arbitration.

"Carlos has demonstrated that he is ready to take his position among the game’s top pitchers for many years to come, and we are pleased to announce that he will be anchoring our starting rotation into the foreseeable future," stated Cardinals Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak.

Martinez, 25, paced the Cardinals pitching staff in wins (16) and strikeouts (174) last season while making a career-high 31 starts with 195.1 innings pitched. The hard-throwing right-hander, a National League All-Star in 2015, has delivered 30 wins over the past two seasons (2015-16), ranking 5th among Senior Circuit pitchers.

Martinez’ .618 (34-21) career winning pct. ranks 3rd all-time (min. 50 decisions) among Cardinals pitchers age 25 years or younger, trailing only Howie Pollet (.661) and Dizzy Dean (.651).

The Dominican native, who was signed by the Cardinals as a non-drafted free-agent in April of 2010, ranked among N.L. leaders in wins (5th), ERA (3.04, 9th), innings pitched (10th), quality starts (20, 6th) and opponent’s batting average (.233, 12th) in 2016.

Against right-handed batters, Martinez limited the opposition to a league-low .269 slugging mark and a .207 batting average, historical marks in Cardinals single-season history. He allowed a total of just 15 home runs last season (only four against righties) and ranked 4th among N.L. pitchers in HR/9 IP ratio (0.69).

Martinez induced 33 double plays in 2016, ranking 2nd in the majors, while finishing one shy of John Denny’s club single-season record (34 in 1978). In the field, he led Major League pitchers with 25 putouts and at the plate he had a career-high 14 hits (5th among MLB pitchers) and ranked fourth in pitcher’s batting (.237).

The flamboyant Martinez, popular among Cardinals fans both in the States and in his native Dominican Republic, has developed a strong bond with Cardinals Nation through his Tsunami Waves charitable foundation by giving back to those in need both in St. Louis and his home of Puerto Plata.

Comets goalkeeper Stephen Paterson ranks third in the league in goals against average (3.91), third in save percentage (.754), and is tied for third in wins with five. Paterson has also posted one of the only two shutouts in the league thus far this season.

The Ambush scoring leaders are Corey Adamson, Stefan St. Louis and Richard Schmermund (five goals each). The point leaders are Schmermund and St. Louis (seven each) and the leader in assists is Kentaro Takada with five.

Saturday’s contest also marks the return to St. Louis of Odaine Sinclair, who played the last three seasons with the Ambush and won the 2013-14 MISL Rookie of the Year honor. Sinclair tallied 36 goals and 38 assists in three seasons with the Ambush. He has two goals and one assist in eight games played thus far this season with the Comets.

Schmermund earns MASLTeam of the Week honor

ST. CHARLES -- St. Louis Ambush defender Richard Schmermund has been named to the Major Arena Soccer League’s Team of the Week for Week Eight of the 2016-17 regular season.

As a defender, Schmermund displayed great two-way ability, helping on both offense and defense in the team’s December 18 loss to Cedar Rapids. From the back line, Schmermund helped to keep Cedar Rapids forward Gordy Gurson without a goal for only the second time this season. He also added a goal and an assist to his team’s efforts.

The 2016-17 season is Schmermund’s fourth with the Ambush. He is a St. Louis area native who grew up in Ferguson. He played prep soccer at McCluer High School and club soccer for Scott Gallagher and Lou Fusz.

Schmermund’s collegiate career was spent at St. Louis Community College, where he was awarded First Team All Conference. Prior to joining the Ambush, Rich played professionally with the Illinois Piasa (PASL). Schmermund appeared in 14 games for the Ambush in 2013-14. He contributed five goals and 13 blocks. During the 2014-15 campaign, "the Schmerminator" registered seven goals and two blocks in 15 games played. Schmermund appeared in all 20 games last season (2015-16), tallying four goals, six assists and 11 blocks.

The Ambush return to action when they host the division and cross-state rival Kansas City Comets in a New Years’ Eve matinee Saturday, December 31 at 1:05 p.m. Single game and group tickets are available for all remaining home games.
