St. Louis Cardinals mark start of playoff push in 14-inning win against Pittsburgh Pirates
If you are a fan of the long ball, the Kansas City Royals may not be the team for you.
Right-handed starter Adam Wainwright has been a leader on the St. Louis Cardinals staff for years as he became co-ace of the pitching rotation with Chris Carpenter, but the team needs Wainwright’s leadership now more than at any other time in his career.
The St. Louis Cardinals jumped out to a 28-16 record through roughly the first quarter of the regular season, and while that is the best record in the National League, the team still has noticeable room for improvement.
Adams is in such a groove right now he has the look of a hitter who could hit almost any pitch out of the ballpark.
