Insight: Wainwright finished the inning so the injury couldn't have been that serious. He had another brilliant outing on Tuesday, allowing just four hits across seven shutout frames. Wainwright (1.46 ERA) is tied with Mark Buehrle and teammate Lance Lynn for the major league lead in victories (four each).

Description: Depending on the situation, the Cardinals could opt to use Game 1 starter Adam Wainwright in Game 4 Sunday night at St. Louis. SOURCE: Cardinals.com
Insight: Technically, he's not scheduled to pitch again until Game 5 but if it's an elimination game the Cardinals would obviously rather use their best starter. Wainwright got rocked for five runs in his outing Wednesday in Game 1, though almost all of the damage came in the first two inings. His teammates didn't do him any favors in the field by committing three errors.

Description: St. Louis righthander Adam Wainwright was roughed up in Game 1 of the World Series, yielding six hits and five runs in an 8-1 loss.

Description: Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright went the distance Wednesday in a series-clinching win over the Pirates.
Insight: Wainwright (9 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 9 K's, 1 BB) was brilliant from start to finish on Wednesday. He's always been a stud in the playoffs (3-0, 2.54 ERA in six postseason starts) so it's hardly a surprise that Wainwright was the hero again in Game 5. Expect him to start Game 3 of the NLCS.

Insight: He's the first pitcher in the majors to reach double-digit victories. Wainwright (7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K's) has now won five in a row with a 1.64 ERA during that stretch. We'd be shocked if he doesn't get an invite to the All-Star Game at Citi Field next month.
