Wainwright lasted just 4.2 innings, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits and four walks while striking out four batters in dropping his fifth loss (12-5) of the year Tuesday in the Cardinals' 7-2 defeat to the Rays.
It was an uncharacteristically bad outing for Wainwright on Tuesday, as this was only the second time all year he didn't last at least five innings. Wainwright is still having a dominant season and has a fantastic 2.02 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 119:31 K:BB ratio in 145.2 innings pitched this year. His next scheduled start is set for Sunday against the Cubs on the road.
