Adam Wainwright vs. Williams Perez

  • Wainwright went to the mound today with the hopes of correcting the flaws he identified in his last start but he was obviously lost at certain points during the game. He made due with what he had for the majority of the start but walked 2 and then  allowed a 3-run jack to Drew Stubbs. The Cardinals still went on to win the game 12-7.
  • Jeremy Hazelbaker is keeping up is hot start with another clutch hit today that tied the game in the 8th inning. Aledmys Diaz came off the bench to hit a 2 run double in the 9th
  • The Cardinals record is 3-3. They have rebounded well from last week and their 0-3 start to the season.
  • Matt Carpenter hit his first home run this season. A 3-run shot in the 5 run top of the 9th
  • The Cardinals open up at home tomorrow for the first time in 2016. Wacha takes the mound at 3:15
