|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/14) Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright twirled a gem Thursday against the Nationals, in an 8-0 win.

Wainwright has been his typically brilliant self through four starts, holding a 3-1 record and 1.80 ERA in 30 innings of work. He has struck out 32 batters while walking nine heading into his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Mets.
|Adam Wainwright merely OK in defeat of Cubs |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was not at his best Saturday, but he was good enough to beat the Cubs with plenty of help from his hitters.
Wainwright gave up four runs on seven hits in seven innings for the win. His control was impeccable - he walked none and fanned eight.
It marked his third straight seven-inning outing to start the season. He has surrendered just 15 hits in 21 innings and owns a 2.57 ERA. His next outing is scheduled for Thursday against Washington.
|Adam Wainwright falls on wrong end of pitcher's duel |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/6/14) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright fell on the wrong end of a pitcher's duel on Sunday, suffering his first loss of the season in a 2-1 defeat to Pittsburgh.
Wainwright (1-1) allowed run-scoring doubles to Neil Walker and Tony Sanchez for his only blemish of the afternoon. He was charged with only two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in seven innings of work. He tossed 100 pitches, 65 of which were strikes.
Wainwright has allowed just two run over 14 innings pitched this season. He'll look to keep rolling on Saturday at home against the Cubs.
|Adam Wainwright wins pitcher's duel with Opening Day gem |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/31/14) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright threw seven scoreless innings while giving up just three hits, walking four and striking out nine in his team's 1-0 win over the Reds on Opening Day.
The two teams battled to a scoreless draw through six innings before a Yadier Molina home run gave Wainwright all the lead he would need. He threw 105 pitches in the win, and he'll attempt to open the season 2-0 in Pittsburgh Sunday.
|Adam Wainwright caps spring with five scoreless innings |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/14) Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright capped his spring slate with a win Wednesday against the Nationals. The right-hander, who will start opening day for St. Louis, allowed just one hit in five scoreless innings, while striking out six.
Wainwright (2-0) appears to be in midseason form, as he finished the spring with a 1.59 ERA. He had 18 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings.
|That's more like it for Adam Wainwright. The 32-year-old was less than ace-like in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2012, causing some to wonder if he might be an exception to the rule that pitchers come back from the procedure as good as new. Turns out he just needed an extra year to regain his feel for everything. Or less than that, really, when you consider he had a 3.28 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings after the All-Star break in 2012. Leading the majors with 241 2/3 innings and five complete games and the NL with 19 wins, Wainwright earned his second second-place finish in NL Cy Young voting in 2013. His WHIP was the second-lowest of his career, and his rate of 1.3 walks per nine innings was by far his best. About the only thing he doesn't have going for him is an eye-popping strikeout rate, but with all the innings he pitches, eight per nine still yields a high total. In most leagues, defending Cy Youngs Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer will go before him, as will Yu Darvish, in part because of his eye-popping strikeout rate. But Wainwright is in the conversation after them, going in the same range as Felix Hernandez and Cliff Lee.
