Adam Wainwright had another good outing Wednesday night –in fact allowing no hits until the fourth inning when Jose Altuve came to the plate. Until that game, Wainwright had only allowed two hits this spring — and they were both to Altuve.
After three perfect innings, Adam Wainwright allowed more hits (3) in the fourth than he had allowed (2) in his first 12 innings this spring.
The hits led to one run, but Wainwright was able to get out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam. Wainwright also gave up a home run to Altuve in the fifth – Altuve has four of the seven hits Wainwright has allowed this spring
So far, the 39 year old has been the best of the starting pitchers. Alex Reyes has been. having a great spring, but as a reliever has not pitched as many innings.
