Redbirds' rain man shines again

Neither rain, nor delay, nor pressure, nor glare of October lights keeps Michael Wacha from the usual swift completion of his assigned starts. The young righty has shown whatever the conditions, he can deliver. For the third time in as many starts this season, Wacha had an outing complicated by soggy weather and for the third time the second-year starter provided the Cardinals with...

Wacha following up on October rookie breakout

ST. LOUIS -- Take it from the Cincinnati Reds: Michael Wacha's breakout postseason was no fluke. In his first two starts for the St. Louis Cardinals, the 6-foot-6 right-hander has stared down one of the National League's top lineups. Just like last fall, he's been impervious to pressure, too. After the Reds mustered a single run in 12 2/3 frustrating innings against the...

Reds see shades of Waino and Carp in Wacha's game -- which isn't good for their future

ST. LOUIS -- Jay Bruce got to know Michael Wacha a little bit during the offseason as both worked out at the same facility in the suburbs of Houston.

Cingrani, Wacha set to duel again in Cardinals home opener

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The pitching matchup, Tony Cingrani vs. Michael Wacha, is a repeat from the second game of the season in Cincinnati when neither allowed a run in a combined 13 2-3 innings.

Wacha strong, but Cards struggle offensively in 1-0 loss to Reds

In his first start of 2014, Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha pitched like it was 2013. Unfortunately for him, the Cardinals hit on Wednesday night in Cincinnati like they did against left-handers in 2013. That is, they didn't hit. St. Louis was held to three singles by lefties Tony Cingrani and Manny Para and right-hander J.J. Hoover in a 1-0 loss to the Reds. The Cardinals...

Cardinals Pitchers are Showing Signs of Strengthening their Weaknesses

Michael Wacha has already made his mark in Cardinals’ history along with essentially still being a prospect who has a bright future ahead of him. One of his limitations that is often times repeated is his lack of pitches. He has gotten a lot of mileage out of changing speeds, but sooner or later he needs to develop another strong pitch. Last year he attempted to develop a cut fastball...
