Cardinals SP Michael Wacha earns second win of season Friday

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/15) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha tossed seven solid innings of work to pick up his second win of the season during Friday's 6-1 win over the Reds.

"Anytime you're going up against a guy like Cueto, you know you're going to have to match zeroes with him," Wacha said, per MLB.com. "That was the mentality going into it."

Over the seven innings, Wacha surrendered five hits and one run, while walking one and striking out four. His lone blemish was a solo home run to Joey Votto.

Despite coming into the game with a 1.42 ERA, Wacha was able to lower it to 1.35. Wacha has yet to allow more than one run in his first two starts of the season and is 2-0. 

His next expected start will be Thursday at Washington.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha has good history against Reds

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/15) When Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha takes the hill Friday night against the Reds, it will be his seventh career start against the NL Central foe. It is the opponent he has faced the most thus far in his young MLB career. 

Wacha has had pretty good success against Cincinnati as well. He is 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in seven career outings (six starts). He went 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in four starts against Cincinnati last season, and beat the Reds in his season debut Saturday (one ER in 6 1/3 innings).

The right-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his six starts against the Reds.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha earns win vs. Reds

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/11/15) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha picked up a win in his season debut Saturday, giving up one earned run on five hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 4-1 win over the Reds.

"He was good right off the bat," manager Mike Matheny said of Wacha. "He was working the bottom of the zone, and we were surprised at how good his curveball was. It has always been a good pitch for him, but he didn't have confidence in it. Now that he sees results, he'll trust it and use it."

Wacha surrendered a home run to Todd Frazier in the first inning but buckled down after that, coming out of the game after walking the second batter of the seventh inning. He'll face the Reds again Friday.

Cardinals plan to limit innings for Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/15) Since Michael Wacha had shoulder problems in 2014 and Carlos Martinez has never thrown more than 150 innings in his career, the Cardinals are expecting to limit both starting pitchers at some point this season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“We have some numbers in mind, but not early on,” manager Mike Matheny said. “I think you’ve got to wait and see where things are leading. If they’re throwing high volume, we’ll worry about that down the road, and we can use the All-Star break or we can use some of our off days to change things. This isn’t something where we need to start holding them back now. I don’t think that’s a great idea. But we don’t need to push.”

Martinez has never thrown more than 120 1/3 innings in one season. General manager John Mozeliak indicated Martinez might be limited to around 150 innings this season.

“Getting in that range would be a fair question," he said.

Cubs, Cardinals postponed Tuesday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/7/15) Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Cardinals has been postponed due to the forecast of rain and sub-freezing wind chills throughout the evening, the Cubs announced.

A makeup date for Tuesday's postponement has yet to be scheduled, but it is likely to come in July or September rather than this week. Jake Arrieta and Lance Lynn were the scheduled starters for Tuesday's matchup.

Lynn has been named the starter for Wednesday's series finale against the Cubs. The Cardinals will keep the rotation in line moving forward, with John Lackey, Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez on tap to face the Reds this weekend. Adam Wainwright is now scheduled to take the mound for the team's home opener Monday against the Brewers.
