St. Louis Cardinals
New York Mets
Adam Wainwright became the major leagues' first 10-game winner by pitching seven scoreless innings and sent Matt Harvey to his first loss of the season, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over the New York Mets 2-1 Thursday in a classic pitching matchup.
Wainwright (10-3) retired his first 11 batters before David Wright's single, and allowed four hits with six strikeouts and two walks. Wainwright matched his career best by winning his fifth straight start, dropped his ERA to 2.18 and got his 1,000th career strikeout when Wright was called out on a first-inning curveball.
Known best in New York for freezing Carlos Beltran with a called third strike to end Game 7 of the 2006 NL championship series, Wainwright had been 0-4 with an 8.46 ERA in four starts against the Mets since beating them on April 18, 2010.
Trevor Rosenthal pitched the eighth, and Edward Mujica allowed a long home run to Marlon Byrd with one out in the ninth. John Buck then doubled and took third as Kirk Nieuw...
BEST OF MAXIM
David Wright spoke out about the overzealous campaign by the Mets to get him voted to the All Star Game.
“It’s nice when the organization is trying so hard to do something for one of their players and I can’t thank them enough for that,” Wright said.
“But at the same time, I’ve asked them to kind of back it down a little bit, especially with the stuff between innings...
The captains for the Home Run Derby have been named. The captains will get to choose which players will be on their team.
When the first vote totals for the MLB All-Star Game were released last week, David Wright was in second. A desperate Mets marketing department didn’t want Wright to lose to Pablo Sandoval for the second year in a row, especially not with the game being held at Citi Field. So one employee decided to turn to an untapped voting base, one that would support Wright...
So now it’s come to this.
After a series of emails were leaked to Deadspin, the Mets had no choice but to admit they stooped down to hitting up a cougar/cub dating website to help promote David Wright’s All Star Game bid.
Wright lost out to Giant’s 3rd baseman Pedro Sandoval last year, and this year Sandoval already has a lead on him. With this year’s games taking place...
So on his off-day on Monday of this week, Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright took a detour on his way to New York and stopped off at the ESPN campus to get showered with love and plastered all over SportsCenter.
The World Wide Leader actually barely used him at all, because, you know, LeBron.
He did get to meet comedian Kevin Hart, who he pitched against in a...
Cougar Life is a dating web site for older women to find younger men. Last month, the site asked their members which baseball player they’d most like to score with, and NY Met David Wright came out on top (pun intended…or not).
A staff member in the Mets marketing department thought they could use this prestigious award (or something) to get Wright more All-Star votes. This...
For those scoring at home, the website Cougarlife.com, has over 3.9 million members, which is probably close to double what the New York Mets will draw this year. And, a fraction of that would be enough to select David Wright to the All-Star Game this July at Citi Field.
So, despite the obvious reaction of “what were they thinking?’’ the potential numbers indicate it might...
The New York Mets are going all out in an effort to ensure David Wright is voted in as the starting third baseman for the NL All-Star team this year. The Mets are hosting the Mid-Summer Classic at Citi Field next month, and they don’t want to suffer the embarrassment of having their franchise player [...]
With the MLB All-Star game in Queens this year, the New York Mets are hoping to send as many Mets players as possible with the biggest name being third baseman David Wright — who is currently about 200,000 votes behind San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Sandoval is now on the disabled list due to a foot injury and this may help Wright in making a rebound in his...

The Cardinals beat the Mets 2-1 Thursday afternoon at Citi Field in New York. Trevor Rosenthal came on in the eighth inning in relief of Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright who threw seven shutout innings.
The pressure of standing and watching a one-run ball game was apparently too much for this Mets fan in the background. For absolutely no reason at all, aside from TMB (too much...
