Garcia’s 2021 record: (54-47-2)
Adam Wainwright has started 19 games since June 9th. St. Louis is an unbelievable 16-3 in those games.
The ageless wonder, Wainwright is 40-years-old yet by all accounts has been one of the 10 best pitchers in all of baseball this season. On the year he’s 16-7, with a 2.89 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 169 strikeouts in 196.1 innings.
The more you dive into the numbers, the better they become. IN his last 13 starts, Wainwright has 12 quality starts and the only time he didn’t record a quality start, he still picked up a win and pitched into the ninth inning against the Dodgers.
Most remarkably, he’s doing all of this coming off of an Achilles tear. Since posting ERA’s of 4.08 and 4.35 the first two months of the season, his ERA’s have been 2.45, 3.27, 1.43 and 2.36 over the past four months.
He has emerged as potentially the front-runner for the Cy Young Award — which would be the first of his career — over the past few weeks.
Milwaukee doesn’t have some slouch on the mound though, Adrian Houser will be out to prove he’s someone to be feared as well.
The 6-foot-4 righty is 9-6 this year with a 3.27 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 101 strikeouts in 131 innings. His best start of the year (and probably his career) came against the Cardinals just last month when he threw a complete-game shutout, giving up just three hits and striking out seven.
It’s certainly not time to panic if you’re the Brewers, but you certainly want to get things turned back around in a positive direction and quickly. Milwaukee is 2-6 in its last eight games after getting drubbed 10-2 on Wednesday.
In all six of those losses, the Brewers scored two runs or fewer as the offense has suddenly gone rather cold. Of the nine people who’ve taken nine or more at-bats in the past week, eight of them are hitting below .286.
That includes Kolten Wong (.231), Lorenzo Cain (.200), Christian Yelich (.150), and Eduardo Escobar (.130) among others.
As previously mentioned, Milwaukee’s offense has been ice cold for the better part of a week and now it’s looking for someone to turn it around against a veteran on the mound.
A good bet to turn it around is Avisail Garcia, the corner outfielder having the best year of his career. Garcia went 1-for-3 Wednesday with a solo home run, extending his career-high’s in home runs (29) and RBIs (84),
For St. Louis, the middle of the order did the mashing Wednesday night, as Nolan Arenado, Tyler O’Neill, and Paul Goldschmidt each scored multiple runs, drove in multiple runs and had multiple hits.
So for this one, we will look at Harrison Bader, who also has been hot lately. He was 3-of-5 Wednesday and had his fourth double in the past five games.
