ST. LOUIS (AP) As the St. Louis Cardinals took stock of their situation a day after the firing of manager Mike Matheny, some players said they bear some responsibility for Matheny's sudden dismissal.

Matheny was fired Saturday night after an 8-2 loss to the last-place Cincinnati Reds. The Cardinals entered Sunday's game one game over .500 and 7+ games behind the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs and are in danger of missing the playoffs for a third straight season for the first time since 1999.

"We all feel bad for Mike and ultimately it comes down on us," veteran infielder Jedd Gyorko said Sunday. "We're the guys that go out there and play and perform. I feel like we haven't done that good enough."
