Wainwright (9-8) allowed seven runs -- only two of them earned -- on nine hits and two walks over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals played some woeful defense in this one, and the Mets made them pay for it. But that's not to excuse Wainwright, who struggled against the Mets for the second time within the span of a month. We keep waiting for him to turn the corner and it keeps not happening, but a start against the Brewers on Tuesday at least represents a more promising matchup.

Wainwright didn't factor into the decision Friday versus the Phillies but turned in a quality start, giving up three earned runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty bounced back nicely after lasting only two innings against the Cubs last Friday. Wainwright did get into trouble early by giving up an RBI-double to Freddy Galvis in the first and then was touched up for back-to-back solo blasts by Odubel Herrera and Galvis in the sixth. It was Wainwright's first quality start in his last three trips to the mound and he'll try to keep the momentum going against the Mets next Thursday.

Wainwright (9-7) surrendered seven earned runs on six hits and three walks over two innings in Friday's 13-2 loss to the Cubs. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

There was a stretch this summer where it looked like Wainwright had turned his season around, but he seems to once again be on a downward slide. The outing was by far his shortest of the season and he's now surrendered 13 earned runs on 15 hits and six walks over the eight innings covering his last two starts. The 34-year-old has dropped both of those decisions and will look to get things turned around when he takes on the Phillies next Friday.

Wainwright (9-6) allowed six runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out three over six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Wainwright was blasted for three runs in each of the first two innings he pitched before settling down to close out his day with four innings of shutout ball. After having a terrific five-start stretch in July, he's now failed to post a quality start in each of this last three outings to raise his ERA to 4.34. His 2016 ERA is currently 0.4 points higher than any ERA he's posted in a season since becoming a starter in 2007.

Wainwright lasted just five innings Tuesday in a start against the Reds, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

The outing was unusually short for Wainwright, who is typically able to pitch deeper into games due to his exceptional strike-throwing capabilities. But Wainwright threw just 60 of 101 pitches for strikes Tuesday, and the five innings matched his shortest outing of the season. Though of no use to most fantasy owners, Wainwright helped himself out by hitting his second homer of the season, a third-inning blast off Reds starter Dan Straily. The Cardinals went on to lose the game in the ninth inning, leaving Wainwright with his third consecutive no-decision. His ERA now sits at 4.14.

Wainwright threw 6.2 innings of four-run ball Wednesday, scattering 11 hits while walking just one and striking out four en-route to a no-decision against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Wainwright was on the hook for the loss with his four earned runs, but was bailed out by his teammates, who rallied for a pair of runs off Mets closer Jeurys Familia in the ninth to come back and win the game 5-4. Wainwright has been steady for the Cardinals after a brutal start to the season where he allowed at least three earned runs in each of his first eight starts. Since May 13th, Wainwright has gone at least six innings in 12 of 13 starts, lowering his ERA to 4.16. He's flashed his signature pinpoint command over that timeframe, walking just 19 hitters over all those innings.

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.
