Wainwright struck out eight without a walk while allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings Thursday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

He actually left the game trailing thanks to the two-run rally the Padres pieced together in the fifth inning, but the Cardinals' offense bailed him out. This has been a tough year for Wainwright on the whole, but he's really turned the page in July, allowing only three runs over 29 innings (0.93 ERA) with a terrific 27:5 K:BB spanning four starts this month. Start him with confidence moving forward.

Wainwright (9-5) fired a three-hit shutout while walking two and striking out five to earn the win Saturday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals scored four runs in the third inning, and Wainwright shut down the Marlins on 120 pitches to pick up his ninth win of 2016. He's been on fire lately, as he's allowed just one earned run over his last 25 innings of work, and during that time he's won all three decisions and lowered his ERA to a season-low 4.15. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Padres.

Wainwright (8-5) allowed just one run on five hits Thursday against the Pirates. He walked one and struck out nine in the win.

EDGE Analysis

Wainwright matched his season-high in strikeouts to help the Cardinals avoid a four-game sweep while ending the Pirates' season-best seven-game winning streak. He was a 20-game winner two years ago, but missed most of last season with a torn left Achilles. He is rediscovering his form now, lowering his ERA to 4.49.

Wainwright (7-5) pitched seven innings of seven-hit, shutout ball in Saturday's 3-0 victory over the Brewers. He gave up two walks and struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The former 20-game winner had pitched well for an extended stretch before a six-run hiccup against the Royals last Monday, but rebounded in stellar fashion Saturday. It was Wainwright's second shutout performance over the last four outings, and he's now lowered his ERA from 6.68 to 4.70 over the last two months. He'll look to continue the positive momentum versus the Pirates next Thursday.

Wainwright (6-5) gave up six runs (four earned) on nine hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over five innings in Monday's loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Wainwright looked like he was finally entering his old form this month, with four quality starts in his four previous June outings. But this looked like more of the Wainwright who was touched up for a 5.71 ERA over the season's first two months. He was hurt by a pair of Cardinals errors, but his nine hits allowed marked his most in seven starts. He has allowed nine hits or more just five times since 2014, with three of those coming this year.

Wainwright (6-4) tossed 6.2 innings, giving up three runs on six hits while walking three and striking out four in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

It was a battle for Wainwright all night as he allowed the leadoff hitter to reach base in six of seven innings. Despite having to wiggle out of trouble by spending most of the night working from the stretch, he somehow managed to earn his sixth win of the year. After a brutal start to his 2016 campaign, Wainwright has settled in a bit as of late. In his last seven starts, the three-time All-Star is 4-1 and has lowered his ERA by more than two points, which now sits at its lowest point since Opening Day.

Wainwright shut the Astros out over seven innings Wednesday, scattering three walks and four hits while striking ot six, but didn't earn a decision.

EDGE Analysis

The bullpen ended up blowing this one, but that's taking nothing away from Wainwright, who's on an excellent three-start streak to open June after struggling through the season's first two months. Over a span of 20 innings, he's allowed just four runs on 11 hits with a 21:4 K:BB -- in other words, he's finally been the Wainwright we thought we were paying for on draft day.

Wainwright struck out a season-high nine while allowing two runs on a season-low two hits and a walk over six innings Thursday in Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds rallied to score twice on him in the first inning, but Wainwright was nearly perfect thereafter, and it took him only 78 pitches to cruise through six frames before being lifted for a pinch hitter. It's been a tough road for Wainwright this year, but his last two outings -- just four runs on seven hits and two walks with 15 strikeouts over 13 innings -- offer fantasy owners reason for optimism moving forward.

Wainwright (5-4) went seven innings against the Giants on Friday, and allowed only two runs on five hits and a walk while fanning six.

EDGE Analysis

Wainwright was sharp, but he was outdueled by Johnny Cueto. Despite the loss, the 34-year-old lowered his ERA for the fourth consecutive game, and he registered a season-high mark for strikeouts. He hasn't allowed a homer in three of the past four games as well, so he's clearly trending in the right direction. He will look to keep it going in his next start against the Reds on the road Thursday.

Wainwright (5-3) allowed four runs on six hits over the course of seven innings against the Nationals on Saturday. He struck out.

EDGE Analysis

Wainwright had problems with the long ball - allowing three - but other than that, it was a solid start for the 34-year-old righty. Even though this season has been a disappointment for him and his 5.71 ERA, Wainwright seems to be on the right track with seven runs allowed on 19.2 innings across his last three starts. He will look to keep it going in his next start against the Giants on Friday.
