Description: Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright limited the Reds to three hits over seven scoreless innings to pick up the win on Opening Day.
Insight: Wainwright walked four and struck out nine. He was one of the top pitchers in the National League last season, going 19-9 with a 2.94 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and 219 Ks in 241 2/3 innings.

Description: Depending on the situation, the Cardinals could opt to use Game 1 starter Adam Wainwright in Game 4 Sunday night at St. Louis. SOURCE: Cardinals.com
Insight: Technically, he's not scheduled to pitch again until Game 5 but if it's an elimination game the Cardinals would obviously rather use their best starter. Wainwright got rocked for five runs in his outing Wednesday in Game 1, though almost all of the damage came in the first two inings. His teammates didn't do him any favors in the field by committing three errors.
 
10/24/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: St. Louis righthander Adam Wainwright was roughed up in Game 1 of the World Series, yielding six hits and five runs in an 8-1 loss.
Insight: The Cardinals defense didn't help him much and the only good news is that having thrown just five innings he should be able to pitch Game 4 if needed.

Hot10/14/2013 9:36:00 AM
Description: Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was 0-1 against the Dodgers this season, though he pitched reasonably well in the game - 7.0 IP, 7H, 5 Ks, three earned runs.
Insight: Wainwright is a clutch pitcher with a perfect 4-0 postseason record including a 2.03 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 48 2/3 innings pitched. He was 2-0 in this season's NLDS and pitched the series clincher.
 
10/9/2013 10:54:00 PM
Description: Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright went the distance Wednesday in a series-clinching win over the Pirates.
Insight: Wainwright (9 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 9 K's, 1 BB) was brilliant from start to finish on Wednesday. He's always been a stud in the playoffs (3-0, 2.54 ERA in six postseason starts) so it's hardly a surprise that Wainwright was the hero again in Game 5. Expect him to start Game 3 of the NLCS.
 
9/28/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Adam Wainwright's last start before the playoffs was a good one. He tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday for his 19th win of the season.
Insight: That leads the National League. Wainwright came out after just 72 pitches, which would indicate that the Reds are trying to keep him fresh for Game 1 of the Division Series. Wainwright's season ending ERA (2.94) is his lowest since 2010.
 
9/7/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright had a much-needed strong outing Saturday versus Pittsburgh, going seven innings and allowing two hits and no runs while striking out eight.
Insight: In Wainwright's previous two starts, both against the Reds, he had allowed 17 hits and 15 earned runs in eight innings. He's now 16-9 with a 3.03 ERA.
 
Cold9/2/2013 7:21:00 PM

Description: Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright's start Sunday against the Cubs was his first with fewer than three earned runs since July 21.
Insight: Wainwright threw seven innings for the fifth straight start and gave up one run on five hits with 11 strikeouts. He's 14-7 with a 2.66 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP this season.
 
8/8/2013 6:18:00 PM
Description: The Cardinals have pushed Adam Wainwright back from Saturday's start to get him some extra rest.
Insight: After starting Monday against the Dodgers, Wainwright was scheduled to pitch Saturday against the Cubs but the team will recall prospect Michael Wacha to start that game instead. Wainwright will presumably start Tuesday against the Pirates after Lance Lynn pitches Friday and Joe Kelly throws Sunday.
 
7/6/2013 2:10:00 PM
Description: St. Louis right-hander Adam Wainwright will start Tuesday and Sunday next week, the final week before the All-Star game.
Insight: Fantasy owners applaud the Cardinals' management for choosing their team over the Summer Classic. Wainwright improved to 11-5 by allowing just one run on five hits in nine innings in his last start. The right-hander has a 2.36 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and an otherworldly 117/13 K/BB in 133 2/3 innings this season. Now he'll be a two-start pitcher too.
 
Hot6/29/2013 10:03:00 PM
Description: St. Louis pitcher Adam Wainwright snapped a two-game losing streak with his fourth complete game of the season Saturday against the Athletics.
Insight: Wainwright improved to 11-5 by allowing just one run on five hits in nine innings. The right-hander has a 2.22 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP and an otherworldly 116/12 K/BB in 125 2/3 innings this season.
 
Hot6/13/2013 9:16:00 PM
Description: St. Louis righthander Adam Wainwright notched his tenth win of the season Thursday against the Mets.
Insight: He's the first pitcher in the majors to reach double-digit victories. Wainwright (7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K's) has now won five in a row with a 1.64 ERA during that stretch. We'd be shocked if he doesn't get an invite to the All-Star Game at Citi Field next month.
 
Hot6/7/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright has two more wins than walks this season.
Insight: Wainwright struck out seven with one walk and allowed seven hits and two runs over seven innings Friday against Cincinnati to improve to 9-3.
