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


UnknownFiddler

Also notable that he crossed 200 innings as well.


Oehlian

He doesn't deserve the Cy Young... but damn I wish he could have got it this year.


meep_meep_creep

Baseball. Wow.


KamartyMcFlyweight

On the 69th pitch too


PapaDoogins

Nice


justmovingtheground

Nice.


Siethron

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.


BayceBawl

Bob Gibson was a freak of nature, man. Same with guys like Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson.


RustyKarma076

And then absolutely nothing happened after that


studoggery

2 more outs happened and now it's the top of the 5th


Obi_Wan_Benobi

And then what happened?


HidanBestAkatsuki

Nick Castellanos hits a drive to deep left center to make it a 4-0 ball game…


bbkb

And then the Cardinals scored 7 unanswered runs!


JGad14

*8 unanswered runs


MasterSandBoxer

8

How special for Waino to get #2000 on the YouTube game of the week!!!


allballs_and_noshaft

I was a little salty that the [REDACTED] got posted here before number 2,000


redacted47

Huh?


kassell

Oh yeah, we had fireworks, confetti and drank champagne.


StereophonicWine

extra satisfying to see urias strike out on that curve after doing his fat joe impression


WhiteToast-

Not to discredit Wainwright, but that really puts into perspective Scherzer, who's 3 years younger, getting his 3000th strikeout a couple weeks ago.


thetasigma_1355

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.


WhiteToast-

That just gives Scherzer even more credit for having the stamina to not have an extended injury


thetasigma_1355

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.


Willsears94

All hail Waino.


Ivotedforher

That pitch was a beaut!


d_world_destruction

that announcer had good timing


BoomBoomDoomDoom

Can’t wait for the arguments for why he doesn’t belong in the HOF and Cardinals nation to lose their minds.
