Wainwright almost matches Miller, blanks Rockies
ST. LOUIS -- After allowing 11 hits and five runs a week ago in a no-decision at Milwaukee, Adam Wainwright went back to the basics Saturday.
"Throw strike one, avoid the free passes and put the hitters away," Wainwright said.
By doing so, he came within five outs of treating a sellout crowd to the first no-hitter at Busch Stadium III.
