After dropping three in a row to Cincinnati, Cards hope their ace can turn them around.
The Pitching Matching: Adam Wainwright (17-9, 2.62 ERA) struggled throughout August with 5.17 ERA and a 2-4 record in six outings. However, he seems to have returned to his normal form, winning his first two starts of September. He pitched an absolute gem on Sunday, limiting Milwaukee to one run and pitching his fourth complete game of the season.
Jorge de la Rosa (13-10, 4.27 ERA) is 2-4 in his last seven starts. In his past three starts, he has been unable to go deeper than six innings.
The Skinny: Hopefully Wainwright is feeling comfortable on the mound again and can chug out another stellar start. This will be De la Rosa’s second start after he signed a 2 year/$25 million contract extension.
