June 24 8:35 AM PT9:35 AM MT10:35 AM CT11:35 AM ET11:35 ET15:35 GMT23:35 8:35 AM MST10:35 AM EST11:05 AM VEN19:35 UAE10:35 AM CT-Adam Wainwright allowed two runs - one earned - on two hits and two walks in 7.0 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Friday. Wainwright struck out five, ending the game with a 5.35 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After being torched for nine runs and three homers in just 1 2/3 innings at Baltimore in his previous start, Wainwright got back to being his usual steady self. The veteran may not be the most appealing play, however, when he next takes the mound Wednesday in Arizona. He's 2-4 with a 9.48 ERA on the road this season.
