He goes through stretches like this every year.  Last year at the end of August with those two awful clunkers against the Reds.

Even in 2010, he gave up multiple run games from mid-August to mid-September....I think its just the way he is.

Cards need this one or will have another 2-4 road trip...and that won't cut it if they want to win this division

Pirates are all in despite the quick turnaround. No Pedro Alvarez at least, though.

Harrison, Snider, Cutch, Walker, Martin, Davis, Marte, Mercer, Locke

Grichuk, Cruz, Kelso - pretty much three automatic outs.

Having said that, watch them rip the cover off the ball today.

Locke is undefeated in four starts this month with a 3.42 ERA. In five starts this month Wainwright is 2-3 with a 5.29 ERA. This is a great time to Adam to get back on track though.

A few not-so-fun facts from the game preview: "The Cardinals have dropped 14 of their last 20 regular-season games at PNC Park. Leadoff man Matt Carpenter, hitless in his last 13 at-bats, is a career .173 hitter in Pittsburgh. First baseman Matt Adams has also struggled there, going 6 for 42 with 16 strikeouts."

Well, it's a lefty so Grichuk should definitely get to play. I prefer he play CF over Jay though, but I'm a bit of a Taveras Phanatic.

Cruz always catches Wainwright, plus we are going against a lefty....that's a no brainer.

Descalso is in due to the LH Locke too I guess.

Adam isn't messing around today. Threw 8 strikes on 11 pitches en route to a quick 123 inning!

Well I thought in that first inning Wainwright had his good stuff today. Then he hits Martin with a pitch before serving up a 2-run HR to Ike Davis. Boo.

Bases loaded, nobody out for the Pirates. Three straight singles, including one to the pitcher.

Well the Pirates only got one run out of all that - a sac fly from McCutchen - so maybe he figured something out. Inning ends with Pirates on top 3-1. It looks like Adam is really struggling with his control.
