The Pirates open a three-game series in St. Louis on Tuesday night. Right-hander Charlie Morton will pitch for the Bucs. The Cardinals counter with right-hander Adam Wainwright.
BEST OF MAXIM
The St. Louis Cardinals had not scored any runs in April for right-hander Adam Wainwright in his first 19 2/3 innings over four starts. Not surprisingly, Wainwright, who had not pitched all that well in a couple of those games, was 0-3. But with the advent of May, the Cardinals' offense was in full bloom Tuesday. A three-run homer by third baseman David Freese, a two-run drive...
After last night's offensive outburst, the New Lumber Company moves on to St. Louis to take on Adam Wainwright. Wainwright got off to an awful start this year in his return from Tommy John surgery, but he was pretty excellent in his last start against the Cubs. The Bucs will counter with Charlie Morton, who's already seen the Cardinals once this year. The Cardinals mostly...
Last night, May 1st, Adam Wainwright got his first victory of the year against the Pittsburgh Pirates, as the Cardinals bats lashed out for 10 runs and 13 hits. The Pirates and their inept defense can always be counted on as a cure for any offensive slump! But more important to the long-term outlook of St. Louis season, is the progress made by Wainwright in his recovery from Tommy...

Regarding What a Person Could Assume About Adam Wainwright
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright worked seven solid innings for his first win since September 2010, and the St. Louis Cardinals got big nights at the plate from David Freese and Matt Holliday to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-7 on Tuesday.
Freese's sixth home run and third in five games was a tiebreaking, three-run shot off Charlie Morton (1-2) in the fifth. Holliday homered...
(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals' Adam Wainwright enjoyed his best outing of the season last week, but that wasn't enough to give him his first win since returning from Tommy John surgery.
The right-hander will get another chance Tuesday night when the Cardinals continue their lengthy stretch against NL Central foes in the opener a three-game series with the visiting Pittsburgh...
ST. LOUIS On the night Adam Wainwright recorded his first win in 19 months, the defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals continued to offer a friendly reminder.
No Tony La Russa. No Dave Duncan. No Albert Pujols. No Problem.
The Cardinals stormed out of the gate under manager Mike Matheny, becoming the first defending champ since 1922 to win their first six series the following...

The Bats were working today, but the gloves were not. The Pirates committed a season-tying high four errors and gave up three home runs to fall to the Cardinals 10-7.
Charlie Morton started and ended up giving up six runs (five earned) over 4 1/3 innings...
After the defense and pitching spent the first eighth of the season bailing the Pirates' offense out after awful performance after awful performance, things went in the opposite direction in this one. Charlie Morton was not particularly sharp, nor was Jared Hughes (who was recalled to take Evan Meek's place) or Tony Watson. The four errors committed behind them did not help...
That was not enjoyable. The good news is that the Pirates still kept the bats going. The bad news is the pitching fell apart. Charlie Morton. Not good. Jared Hughes. Not good. Tony Watson. Not good. Brad Lincoln. Good. You aren’t going to win too many games in which you give up nine runs. You [...]
