|Adam Wainwright delivers complete-game shutout for 19th win |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|

|Adam Wainwright turns in excellent performance Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/13/14) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright turned in an excellent performance Friday against the Rockies.
Wainwright gave up one run on six hits over eight innings. He struck out eight and did not issue a walk during the contest. Wainwright gave up his only run in the third inning. After a leadoff single, Wainwright managed to strike out the next two batters. With two outs, Nolan Arenado belted a double to left, scoring the run from first. The run didn’t seem to have an impact on Wainwright, as he tossed five scoreless innings to end the outing.
With the win, Wainwright improved to 18-9. He’ll take on the Brewers in his next start.
|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.
