Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Will start Game 2 of NLCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright was named the starter for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the Nationals on Saturday, Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com reports.

The 38-year-old will take the mound in Game 2 after Jack Flaherty started Game 5 of the NLDS on Wednesday. Wainwright pitched 7.2 shutout innings Game 2 of the NLDS, allowing four hits and two walks while recording eight strikeouts. Miles Mikolas will start the first game of the NLCS with Flaherty likely starting Game 3.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Named starter for NLDS Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright was named the starter for Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Braves, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

It was unclear whether Wainwright or Dakota Hudson would take the mound for Game 3 of the NLDS, but manager Mike Shildt named Wainwright the starter largely due to his past experience in the postseason. The 38-year-old carries a 14-10 record with a 4.19 ERA over 31 starts in 2019. If necessary, Hudson is expected to serve as the starter for the fourth game of the series.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Serves up four homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (14-10) allowed six runs on 12 hits -- including four home runs -- over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.

Wainwright had been on a great run, posting an ERA under 1.00 over the span of five starts, but the magic ran out over his final two regular-season outings (20 hits, 11 earned runs in 9.1 innings). It was a homer parade Saturday, with Ian Happ going yard twice off Wainwright and Kyle Schwarber and Victor Caratini playing long ball as well. The 38-year-old ends the regular season with a 4.19 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 171.2 innings.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Taking ball Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright, who was originally scheduled to pitch the regular-season finale against the Cubs on Sunday, will instead start Saturday's game, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Wainwright will still be going on normal four days' rest for his final regular-season turn. Manager Mike Shildt is keeping his options open for a potentially relevant Sunday finale, as the Cardinals are still trying to clinch the National League Central and own just a slim one-game lead over the Brewers entering the weekend. The modification of the rotation leaves both Miles Mikolas -- Saturday's original projected starter -- and ace Jack Flaherty available to Shildt should St. Louis fail to clinch Saturday, the first day they'd be able to do so.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Picks up 14th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (14-9) picked up the win against the Diamondbacks on Monday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits over five innings, striking out six and walking two as the Cardinals eventually prevailed 9-7.

Wainwright had been on a tear coming into this contest, with just one earned run to his name over his last 27 innings, and while he couldn't keep it going against Arizona, he still managed to pick up his 14th win of the season thanks to some solid run support from his offense. This wasn't his strongest stat line, but Wainwright is still enjoying a strong stretch to close out the season. Overall, he sports a 3.98 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 150:64 K:BB across 167.1 innings.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Continues incredible hot streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (13-9) allowed one unearned run on eight hits with one walk and three strikeouts across seven innings to earn a victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.

His counterpart, Max Scherzer, had almost the exact opposite start, striking out 11 but yielding five runs. Although he did have seven strikeouts in his last outing, Wainwright contributes very little in that area, but he's been outstanding at stranding runners anyway, and he hasn't yielded a homer in five straight starts. During that stretch, he owns a 4-0 record with a jaw-dropping 0.88 ERA. Overall, Wainwright, who will pitch again Monday at the Diamondbacks, has a 3.83 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 144 strikeouts in 162.1 innings this season.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Blanks Brewers for 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (12-9) picked up the win Friday, giving up two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings while striking out seven in a 10-0 victory over the Brewers.

The veteran righty has won three straight decisions, and Wainwright has been mostly sharp since the beginning of August, going 5-2 with a 2.89 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 38:17 K:BB through 46.2 innings over that stretch to help the Cards stay on top in the NL Central. He'll look to keep rolling in his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Nationals.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Last seven innings again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (11-9) allowed one run on six hits with one walk and three strikeouts across seven innings while picking up a victory against the Pirates on Saturday.

Since only lasting 3.2 innings on Aug. 26, Wainwright has given up just one run in his last two starts combined, both of which he pitched seven innings. This mini two-game hot streak has pushed Wainwright to two games above .500 and cut about 0.35 runs from his ERA. He owns a 4.16 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 134 strikeouts in 149.1 innings this season. Wainwright will be back on the mound Friday at home against the Brewers.

September 2, 2019 05:20 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Goes seven innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (10-9) gave up four hits and no walks while striking out one through seven scoreless innings to earn the win over the Giants on Monday.

Wainwright breezed through seven innings on 96 pitches to earn the win. Wainwright continues to thrive at home, posting a 2.67 ERA in 70.2 innings coming into this game. The 38-year-old has a 4.30 ERA and 131 strikeouts through 26 starts overall this season. Wainwright is scheduled to make his next start Saturday at PNC Park.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Not starting this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright won't start any of this weekend's games against the Reds, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Wainwright last pitched Monday, so he could start Saturday or Sunday on regular rest, but Michael Wacha and Daniel Ponce de Leon will work in Saturday's doubleheader while Miles Mikolas closes out the series. There's been no indication of any injury concerns, but Wainwright struggled in his last two starts, allowing seven runs on 14 hits and seven walks over 8.2 innings. The Cardinals have yet to announce their rotation plans beyond the weekend, but if all he needs is some extra rest, the 38-year-old figures to take the mound Monday or Tuesday against San Francisco.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Yanked early in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright yielded two runs on six hits and three walks in 3.2 innings Monday, striking out four batters in the win against Milwaukee. He did not factor in the decision.

St. Louis piled on nine runs before Wainwright left, but he was forced out of the game early after throwing just 49-of-90 pitches for strikes. Lorenzo Cain drove in his team's second run of the game in the fourth inning before Yasmani Grandal drew a walk, ending Wainwright's night. It was the first time since July 19 where he failed to complete at least five innings. The 37-year-old righty will carry a 4.52 ERA into Saturday's home contest against the Reds.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Ugly showing in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (9-9) was the pitcher of record Wednesday in the Cardinals' rain-shortened 5-3 loss to the Brewers, giving up five runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out two in five innings.

Wainwright put the Cardinals in a 4-0 hole in the first inning they were never able to dig out from, with Mike Moustakas' three-run home run representing the brunt of the damage. The veteran righty has been a decent innings eater for St. Louis this season but hasn't offered much relief in the ratio categories, posting a 4.51 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 24 starts.

August 17, 2019 03:52 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Notches ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (9-8) picked up the win after yielding three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six over 6.2 innings Friday night against the Reds.

The veteran right-hander cruised through six scoreless frames before the Reds pushed across three runs in the seventh on an RBI double and a two-run blast. Wainwright pounded the zone all night, firing 64 of 91 pitches for strikes. Following Friday's victory, he owns a 4.33 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with a 124:50 K:BB over 126.2 innings this season.

August 11, 2019 10:48 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Gives up one run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (8-8) allowed one run on six hits with two walks and eight strikeouts across six innings while earning a victory against the Pirates on Saturday.

The veteran right-hander gave up a solo homer to the first batter he faced, but that was it the rest of the night. Wainwright only allowed seven more baserunners and held the Pirates to 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position. The 37-year-old owns a 4.35 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 118 strikeouts in 120 innings this season. Wainwright will take the hill again in Cincinnati on Thursday.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Takes eighth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (7-8) took the loss against the Athletics on Sunday, allowing three earned runs on six hits, three walks and two hit batsmen over 5.1 innings. He struck out seven.

It was an interesting turn for the veteran, who kept the Cardinals in the game with a solid outing overall but also had significant location issues. Wainwright only got 59 of his 99 pitches into the strike zone, although he did notch a solid 11 swinging strikes overall. The right-hander has rebounded to an extent from yielding seven earned runs over 3.1 innings to the Reds on July 19 by allowing four earned runs or less in his subsequent three starts. Wainwright will look to get back in the win column and even up his record when he faces the Pirates next Friday or Saturday.

July 31, 2019 12:52 AM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright threw 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Tuesday, giving up one earned run on five hits, striking out five and walking three in the Cardinals' 2-1 victory.

It was a solid outing from the veteran, and a welcome bounceback after he yielded 11 earned over 8.1 innings in his last two starts, but he would ultimately have to settle for a no-decision in this low-scoring contest. Wainwright now sports a 4.47 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP and a 103:44 K:BB through 108.2 innings on the season.

July 25, 2019 02:16 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Last five innings for win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (7-7) allowed four runs on five hits with four walks and five strikeouts across five innings while earning a victory against the Pirates on Wednesday.

The savvy veteran did just enough to get a win in this one -- with a ton of help from his offense. The Cardinals scored nine runs in the second inning, but Wainwright needed more than 50 pitches to record the first six outs, which still put him in jeopardy for a no-decision. Wainwright displayed more control over his last three frames and made it through five innings with 106 pitches. He's back to a .500 record, but he owns a 4.63 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 98 strikeouts in 103 innings. Wainwright will pitch next at home against the Cubs on Tuesday.

July 19, 2019 11:44 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Chased early by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 12-11 win over the Reds, coughing up seven runs on nine hits over 3.1 innings while striking out four.

After putting together his best start of the season against Arizona in his last trip to the mound Sunday, Wainwright crashed back to earth with his worst outing of the year, as the runs and hits allowed were both season highs. The veteran right-hander will carry a 4.50 ERA and 93:37 K:BB through 98 innings into his next start Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

July 14, 2019 06:20 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Strikes out seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (6-7) gave up four hits and one walk while striking out seven through seven scoreless innings to take the win against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Wainwright delivered a gem to out-duel Zack Greinke on his way to his sixth win of the season. The 37-year-old has been great in his last seven starts, posting a 2.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a 10.2 K/9. Wainwright will make his next start Friday against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

July 13, 2019 07:40 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Set to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (back) is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Wainwright was scratched from Friday's start due to back spasms but will apparently be ready to take the mound after a couple additional days of rest. Previously scheduled starter Miles Mikolas will be pushed back a day and will start Monday versus the Pirates.
