Cardinals go into today’s episode down in a game in the series against the Nationals in St. Louis. This is game 2 and on the hill today will be undefeated Michael Wacha. Wacha is 15-0 for the season and playing light out against everyone he has faced.
Wacha last start was against the Pirates in St. Louis where he won 2-0 with not much run support. That game the runs came late in this game, where Carpenter and Peralta both scored one in the 7th and 8th innings, Carpenter came off of a solo HR. Wacha numbers for that game was 9 IP, a hit, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts with an ERA of 0.67. Cardinals are hoping that the bats Diaz, Carpenter, Piscotty, Peralta and Pham stay hot and bats of Adams, Grichuk and Molina come to life for help.
