Adam Wainwright gets his 2000th career strikeout
By - studoggery
I know players probably don't want to be on the wrong end of milestones (don't want to be the pitcher to give up a 500th dinger, etc.) but that home plate ump REALLY did not want to be a part of Waino's 2000th strikeout lmao zone was as tight as fort knox
Also notable that he crossed 200 innings as well.
He doesn't deserve the Cy Young... but damn I wish he could have got it this year.
On the 69th pitch too
I like that he's the pitcher with the second most strikeouts for the team ever. And the first is Gibson, with an extra 1,117 strikeouts.
Bob Gibson was a freak of nature, man. Same with guys like Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson.
And then absolutely nothing happened after that
2 more outs happened and now it's the top of the 5th
And then what happened?
Nick Castellanos hits a drive to deep left center to make it a 4-0 ball game…
And then the Cardinals scored 7 unanswered runs!
*8 unanswered runs
How special for Waino to get #2000 on the YouTube game of the week!!!
I was a little salty that the [REDACTED] got posted here before number 2,000
Oh yeah, we had fireworks, confetti and drank champagne.
extra satisfying to see urias strike out on that curve after doing his fat joe impression
Not to discredit Wainwright, but that really puts into perspective Scherzer, who's 3 years younger, getting his 3000th strikeout a couple weeks ago.
While still impressive, waino also missed effectively three years to injury and was a closer his rookie year (06). He’d be around 3k if healthy and was a starter his rookie year.
That just gives Scherzer even more credit for having the stamina to not have an extended injury
Completely agree. Scherzer is the more impressive career. My point was more that Waino has been similar dominant over his career, it’s just been a shortened career due to injuries.
All hail Waino.
That pitch was a beaut!
that announcer had good timing
Can’t wait for the arguments for why he doesn’t belong in the HOF and Cardinals nation to lose their minds.
