Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Strikes out seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (1-0) allowed two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts and a walk across six innings in a victory against the Brewers on Wednesday.

This was a nice bounce back performance for the 27-year-old, who yielded seven runs and three homers in his last outing. Wacha only induced seven swinging strikes, but he showcased pinpoint control, earning 15 called strikes. Despite pitching very well twice and throwing a complete dud last time on the mound, this was Wacha's first decision of the year. He is 1-0 with a 4.64 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 24 strikeouts over 21.1 innings. His next outing will be against the Brewers again at home Tuesday.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Struggles in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha surrendered seven runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out three over 3.2 innings Thursday against the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.

Wacha never managed to settle down in the series finale, and things really fell apart for him in the third inning when he gave up four runs. Despite exiting the contest down by a pair, the Cardinals would rally and come away with an 11-7 victory, getting Wacha off the hook for the loss. The 27-year-old right-hander now owns a 5.28 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 15.1 frames in his first three starts of 2019.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Robbed of first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha allowed one run on four hits and four walks and struck out seven over six innings Sunday against Milwaukee. He didn't factor into the decision.

Wacha was in line for the victory after tossing six strong innings, but Christian Yelich's late-inning heroics would rob him of the win. Wacha surrendered his lone run in the first inning on a solo homer by Yelich, but he managed to settle down in the innings to follow. The 27-year-old right-hander will look to secure his first victory of 2019 in his next outing Sunday against the Padres following a stellar season debut.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Bitten by home-run ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha surrendered two runs on six hits and struck out two over four innings Friday against Washington.

Wacha allowed two solo homers in the first inning but managed to settle down and hold the Nationals at bay for the remainder of his outing. He struggled to keep runners off the basepaths, although he didn't hand out any free passes, which was an issue last season (71:36 K:BB over 84.1 frames).
