My fellow Cardinal fans… our long, milestone-chasing nightmare is over: Adam Wainwright has achieved win #200.
Wainwright and the Cardinals defeated the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 for Waino’s 200th career win. Wainwright allowed four hits and struck out three in seven innings.
With the victory, Wainwright becomes just the third pitcher in history to win at least 200 games with the St. Louis Cardinals and just the sixth active hurler to reach 200 victories. Bob Gibson and Jesse Haines are the only other Cardinal pitchers to reach the 200-victory mark.
Truly history at its finest.
