Wainwright confident heading into Game 4

ST. LOUIS Adam Wainwright couldnt have been more focused and excited to start the winner-take-all Game 5 of the NLDS in Washington last week. Then he went out and pitched a dud, allowing six runs in 2 13 innings to put his team in a huge hole. For a while, it looked like that would be the last start the right-hander would make in 2011.

Game Picks - Tuesday: October 16, 2012

There was only one pick yesterday and since it included the St. Louis Cardinals, of course it was wrong. Chris Carpenter still looked mean, but he couldn't get the job done as the Giants scored four runs against him (yes, two were unearned) and the Giants won easily.
