Wainwright got a no-decision in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning win against the Cubs, allowing one run on six hits with five strikeouts in seven innings.
Wainwright had his vintage stuff working Wednesday, allowing just a single run in the third and only requiring 84 pitches to manage seven innings, departing with a 2-1 lead. However, St. Louis' bullpen blew the lead before the Cardinals won in extras. The 84 pitches were Wainwright's fewest since he made his first start of the season April 3, though it was his first quality start since July 1. The veteran now owns a 3.56 ERA -- his lowest full-season mark since 2014.
