Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Takes tough loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (12-9) took the loss against the Cubs on Wednesday, giving up five runs on seven hits and a walk over six-plus innings while striking out eight.

He held the Cubs scoreless through six innings, but the wheels came off in a hurry in the seventh as Wacha allowed the first six batters he faced in the frame to reach base before hitting the showers. The 26-year-old will finish the year with a 4.13 ERA, a marked improvement on 2016 but still a far cry from the 3.38 mark he posted the year before.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Lasts five innings in Friday no decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (12-8) allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out four across five innings, but received no decision Friday against the Pirates.

Wacha held the Pirates scoreless the first time through the lineup, but allowed a pair of runs in the fourth inning that erased a 2-0 lead he was given, and as a result he was unable to earn his 13th victory of the season. He's held opponents to three or fewer earned runs in each of his last five starts, and he's been an adequate fantasy option down the stretch. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Walks five in Saturday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (12-8) allowed three runs on six hits and five walks while striking out seven across 5.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Cubs.

Wacha held the Cubs scoreless the first time through the batting order, but struggled as he gave up three runs over the next two frames, leading to his eighth loss of the season. He came into this contest having allowed four earned runs over his last three outings, and with a 4.02 ERA in the season, and a reasonable fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Pirates.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Spins eight scoreless for 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (12-7) pitched eight scoreless inning with seven strikeouts during Sunday's win Pittsburgh.

After posting a discouraging 6.04 ERA through six August games, Wacha has now won consecutive September starts. His 3.99 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 8.4 K/9 are respectable fantasy numbers, but the 26-year-old righty also sports a 3.68 FIP, so he's likely out pitched his stat line. Wacha lines up to make his next start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Picks up 11th win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (11-7) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings to pick up the win in Tuesday's game against the Padres.

Wacha allowed four runs -- including a mammoth two-run blast to opposing pitcher Travis Wood -- in the opening two innings Tuesday, but settled down and breezed through the next four frames en route to his second consecutive quality start. The righty posted an ugly 6.04 ERA over his six August starts, but will look to finish the season on a stronger note. He's scheduled to take on the Pirates on Sunday.
