Game 77: Cardinals @ Dbacks, 6/28/17, 8:40 pm

Postby R27 » Wed Jun 28, 2017 3:56 pm

RHP Adam Wainwright (7-5, 5.35 ERA) vs RHP Zach Godley (3-1, 2.53 ERA)

MLB.com Preview

Despite his horrendous start, Adam Wainwright leads the rotation in wins.

Also, woof.
Redbird Dugout wrote:Waino is bueno… at home?
Adam Wainwright started the season opener on Friday night and pitched seven strong innings, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks. In the midst of the worst season of his career there is a statistical oddity. In 8 home starts this season, Wainwright is 5-1 and has a 2.64 ERA. Compared to his performances on the road where he is 2-4 with a 9.48 ERA in 7 starts, that’s a radical difference.

He was definitely Rizzenthal tonight and not Closenthal. Will take the W though!

A clean outing by a closer seems like a fantasy. At least Cecil is coming around. The good thing is that whomever is closing can turn things around for themselves as quickly as they have allowed baserunners/runs.

It's so insane that now Cecil is pretty easily the best reliever on the team when he was easily the worst for most of the start of the season. I remember reading that he was a slow starter but that was ridiculous.

Made it to the 7th but couldn't hold out after that. Saw the highlights this morning, Rosie definitely made it interesting there in the 9th. What I wouldn't give for a 1-2-3 inning from our closer in a game.

Nice win over a really good D'backs team. Win today and take the series, I'd be ecstatic.

I checked my phone this morning, saw we won, then saw the Dbacks scored in the 9th and was like, "As usual, we tried to give it away."
