Cardinals' Michael Wacha allows one run in no-decision
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha allowed one run in a season-high seven innings, but he left with the game tied, settling for a no-decision against San Diego on Friday.

Cardinals SP Michael Wacha cruises to easy win Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals standout starter Michael Wacha doesn't generally require much run support to win. But what the heck - his offense gave him plenty anyway Saturday against the Cubs.

The game started out taut, but St. Louis scored four in the fourth and four more in the fifth to allow Wacha to cruise to his 10th victory, which is tied for second in the majors.

The onslaught allowed Wacha to depart after six inning and 91 pitches. He allowed one run on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts. He actually fell behind 1-0 on an RBI single by opposing pitcher Donn Roach in the second inning.

The fine outing continued a period of inconsistency for Wacha, who has traded excellent outings with mediocre ones over the past month.

Michael Wacha gets shelled in Cardinals' loss
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha dropped to 9-3 with a loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. 

"I guess you could think of [the good starts], but right now it stinks pretty good and you definitely don't want to experience this feeling too many times," Wacha said, per MLB.com.

Wacha gave up five runs, his most since September 9 of last season, on eight hits over five innings. He walked one and struck out seven. Wacha also made a fielding error, his second of the season. 

"It was one of those days," manager Mike Matheny said. "He, at times, would find the feel for it. And he was having trouble early on establishing the strike zone with his fastball low. He was getting into hitters counts and having to challenge and they were finding the good part of the bat."

Wacha's next start will be Friday against the Cubs.

Cardinals SP Michael Wacha nabs ninth win on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha was solid through 6 1/3 innings on Tuesday, as he picked up his ninth win of the season. Wacha limited the Twins to two runs on three hits, while walking one and striking out five.

Wacha gave up a run in the first inning, but settled in from there. He then surrendered a second run in the seventh, before a 47-minute rain delay forced him from the game after throwing just 86 pitches on the afternoon.

He has now alternated wins and losses over his last four starts, but still sports a very fine 9-2 record and a 2.48 ERA.

He'll look to keep it up in his next start, scheduled for Sunday in Philadelphia.
