  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Allows one run in wild-card loss

    Wainwright threw 5.1 innings in Wednesday's wild-card loss to the Dodgers, giving up one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five.

    Wainwright hung with Max Scherzer and gave the underdog Cardinals a fighting chance, as the teams remained locked at 1-1 until Chris Taylor's two-out walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth. The only run the Dodgers managed to score off the veteran came on a solo homer by Justin Turner in the fourth inning. Wainwright now owns a 2.83 ERA in 114.1 career postseason innings.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Agrees to extension

    Wainwright agreed to a one-year extension with the Cardinals on Friday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Wainwright appeared to be fading as expected throughout his mid-to-late thirties before suddenly bouncing back over the last two seasons, posting a combined 3.08 ERA over 42 starts. While that number outpaces his peripherals, his 3.76 FIP and 3.95 xFIP both indicate that he's still very much a useful pitcher. Next year will be Wainwright's age-40 season, and it's likely that it will be his final one, as he indicated over the summer that he'd retire after the 2021 or 2022 season. Longtime teammate Yadier Molina also signed a one-year extension back in August with the intention of retiring after the year, so the battery mates will probably ride off into the sunset together.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Named wild-card starter

    Wainwright will start the NL Wild Card Game on Wednesday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Wainwright made his final start of the regular season Tuesday, and he'll have additional rest ahead of his postseason start. The right-hander posted a 5.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 16 innings across his last three starts, but he'll attempt to bounce back against the team's NL West opponent in the pivotal wild-card matchup.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Earns 17th win

    Wainwright (17-7) allowed two earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Wainwright limited the Brewers effectively by inducing 11 groundouts. He generated only four swinging strikes on 102 pitches, but the only damage he surrendered came on a two-run home run by Luis Urias. Wainwright has maintained his success into September having now allowed 14 earned runs across 36.2 frames. However, in that same span, he has only 21 strikeouts as compared to 10 walks. Wainwright could draw a final start to close the regular season, and he'd carry a 3.05 ERA and 174:50 K:BB across 206.1 frames into that potential outing.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Struggles in no-decision

    Wainwright surrendered five runs on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out one batter across four innings during Thursday's win over the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.

    It was the second shortest outing of the season for Wainwright dating back to his first start April 3. The 40-year-old's biggest nemesis of the game proved to be Tyrone Taylor, who hit a grand slam in the first inning and a solo homer in the fourth, accounting for all the damage charged to Wainwright. Fortunately, his offense came through with the win. The right-hander has compiled a 3.05 ERA and 1.04 WHIP overall and lines up for a rematch with the Brewers at home next week.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Fires another quality start

    Wainwright allowed two earned runs on seven hits while striking out two across six innings in the win over the Padres on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Wainwright broke his streak of five straight wins, but he still managed his 11th quality start in his last 12 outings. In that stretch, he has an impressive 1.82 ERA in 84.2 innings dating back to July 21. On the season, the 39-year-old has a 2.89 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 169 strikeouts in 196.1 innings.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Wins fifth straight

    Wainwright (16-7) picked up the win in Monday's 7-0 victory over the Mets, giving up four hits and three walks over six scoreless innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran righty cruised to his fifth straight win despite having a little trouble finding the plate consistently, as he tossed only 58 of 103 pitches for strikes before exiting. Wainwright has delivered a quality start in 10 of his last 11 outings, going 9-1 over that stretch with a dazzling 1.72 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 61:14 K:BB through 78.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Stellar again in 15th win

    Wainwright (15-7) earned the win over the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing four runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out four over 8.1 innings.

    Things didn't look good for the veteran hurler when Los Angeles notched three straight one-out hits in the first inning, but Mookie Betts was thrown out trying to score and Wainwright gave up only one run in the frame. He allowed another run on a sixth-inning Max Muncy homer, yet he was able to mostly quiet the Dodgers' bats and attempt to go for a complete game. That was perhaps not the best decision in the minds of fantasy managers, as Wainwright lost his quality start when he gave up a pair of ninth-inning runs, but Giovanny Gallegos closed things out to give Wainwright his 15th win. The 40-year-old trails only Julio Urias for the major-league lead in wins this season, and he has notched a 2.38 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 106:24 K:BB across 18 starts since the beginning of June.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Notches 14th victory

    Wainwright (14-7) allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out four over 6.1 innings to earn the win over Milwaukee on Friday.

    The Cardinals have tallied 28 runs in support of Wainwright over his past two starts, allowing the veteran to cruise through relatively stress-free outings. He posted six scoreless innings Friday before the Brewers tagged him for a pair of runs (one of which was unearned) in the seventh, leading to Wainwright's exit after 105 pitches. The 40-year-old continues to defy Father Time, registering a 2.91 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 159:43 K:BB across 176 innings on the campaign while tying for second in MLB with 14 wins. He has gotten stronger as the season has progressed, posting a 1.92 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 7-2 record since the All-Star break. Wainwright's next start is tentatively scheduled to come at home against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Cruises to 13th win

    Wainwright (13-7) pitched seven scoreless innings to pick up the win against Pittsburgh on Saturday, yielding three hits and one walk while striking out five.

    As far as comfortable outings go, this one ranked near the top this season for Wainwright, who was gifted a 7-0 lead after three innings and was provided 13 total runs of support. The veteran hurler registered his eighth straight quality start and his third scoreless outing in his past four appearances. Over that span, he has allowed only two earned runs across 30 innings while posting a 25:3 K:BB. Wainwright has proven to be fantasy gold for those who trusted that he had something left in the tank -- his 13 wins are tied for third in the league, and his 2.97 ERA ranks 14th among qualified pitchers. He's projected to make his next start at Milwaukee on Friday.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Fans nine to claim 12th win

    Wainwright (12-7) tossed eight scoreless innings Sunday against the Pirates, allowing two hits and striking out nine.

    The soon-to-be 38-year-old veteran delivered one of his most dominant performances of the season, as he nearly tossed a complete game and also recorded his third-best strikeout total of the campaign. Wainwright, who reduced his ERA to an impressive 3.10 through 162.2 innings, has also tossed seven straight quality starts and has posted a blistering 1.76 ERA during that span as well.
