2013 MLB game 116 thread: Cubs at Cards, Sat 8/10 (Wacha) 


Michael Wacha (1-0, 4.58) vs. Carlos Villanueva (2‐8, 4.26). 6:15 PM CT. FOX Sports Midwest and KMOX.

Adam Wainwright, the original scheduled starter, will instead pitch the opener in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Let's see how much progress Wacha has made with that fastball command in his starts at Memphis. You'll know it when hitters are lunging at the change in the bottom-of-the-zone.

Carlos Martinez has been sent back to Memphis to make room for Wacha.

Lineup: Carpenter 4, Beltran 9, Craig 3, Holliday 7, Freese 5, Jay 8, Johnson 2, Descalso 6, Wacha 1.

Among today's guests at Busch are Woody Williams and his son Ben, a high school player in the Houston area.

Wacha will move to the pen after his start tonight.

Wacha's pitch selection and K of Rizzo in the first was a nutshell of the upside of this kid:

1st pitch get me over curve
2nd pitch swing and miss fooled on change up
3rd pitch blown away on 95 mph above the belt

Looks to be trying to use the curveball more than he did when previously up. I thought the keys for him to work on when he went down was keeping the fastball down to set up the change and develop a better curve. Was a 2-0 92 mph fastball down and in that lead to the solo HR in the 2nd.

Interesting.  We haven't seen that yet.  I assume he will start out coming in at the start of an inning.

Well, he got through 5 with the lead. Not exactly a sharp outing. 100 pitches I think.

Liked that pitch Maness got the DP on, but his release looked different somehow. Whatever the pitch was, he'll have to be carefull about telegraphing it.
