I watched the game and I was surprised when I saw him coming to pitch in the 6th. I can only think that LaRussa tryed to save his pen.
Wainwright was really struggling, although a lot of the Cubs hits seemed like having laser guidence to find a spot. Im saying that as a Cubs fan. And the wind was really blowing out that day at Wrigley.
Still Wainwrights curve is not workin yet. I watched all of his starts and its far from last year's. Thats why I decided to bench him. But once his curve will bite again he'll do fine.
His pitch count is not a factor, he is streched out.
