Bet they wish the rain had kept coming down in St. Louis. After a nearly two-hour rain delay, fans were anticipating the return of Adam Wainwright to his home field. He returned, but he didn’t last long. In 3 innings, he gave up 7 hits – two of them home runs, and 1 of those a grand-slam – and 8 runs.
Offensively, the Redbirds were still pretty good, rallying with 5 runs in the 5th inning, but the game was already out-of-reach.
That’s two losses in a row, the second a pounding. Hopefully, they can turn that around tomorrow. Hopefully, Wainwright, back from Tommy John surgery, can, as well.
