Adam Wainwright needs to make it past the 5th inning tonight if the Cards are going to survive. He’s allowed 17 hits and 8 ER in 9 IP, with four walks. He’s acknowledged a sore shoulder but said poor mechanics are behind his struggles.
Madison Bumgarner has had no such problems, yielding just 14 hits, three walks and two runs in 23-2/3 IP. I’m pulling for the Giants to win the series but would like to see the series continue so we don’t have to go four days without baseball.
