Michael Wacha fails to go five innings Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha failed to go five innings Saturday against the Reds.

Wacha allowed two runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings. He struck out one and did not issue any walks during the outing. Wacha got off to a solid start, tossing three scoreless innings to open the game. He gave up his first run in the fourth inning. After a leadoff single advanced to second on a wild pitch, Brandon Phillips managed to knock the run home with a single. A leadoff single again came around to score in the fifth inning after Kristopher Negron doubled. Wacha was replaced after giving up the hit.

Wacha didn’t go five innings, so he wasn’t eligible for the win. He picked up a no-decision, and will take on the D-Backs in his next start.

Michael Wacha set to return Saturday vs. Reds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Michael Wacha still thinks he can return
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha, who was scratched from Saturday's start because he didn't feel right, threw about 30 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday and felt great, according to Fox Sports Midwest. He still hopes to return to the rotation before season's end, but manager Mike Matheny isn't so sure.

"This is a young player where we had something going, missed a couple of months and all those are reasons for us to once again pause and just kind of take our time, make sure everything looks right before moving forward," Matheny said.

Wacha has made two starts in September after missing all of July and August with a stress fracture in his right shoulder.

Michael Wacha now a no-go for Saturday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha has been scratched from the Saturday start against Colorado. Marco Gonzales is set to pitch instead.

"He doesn't look right," Mike Matheny told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about Wacha.

Wacha is coming off a poor outing against Cincinnati in which he surrendered five earned runs in four innings. He has made just two starts since returning from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for nearly three months.

Michael Wacha blasted in loss vs. Reds Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha took a loss Tuesday, allowing six runs (five earned) on six hits and three walks in four-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 9-5 defeat against the Reds.

Wacha (5-6) surrendered a two-run home run in the first inning and an RBI double to the opposing pitcher in the fourth. He then put the first three guys of the fifth on base, with one reaching on an error, before exiting the game. Wacha owns a 3.14 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 89:30 K:BB ratio in 97 1/3 innings. He'll look to bounce back Sunday against the Rockies.
