Player Notes
Michael Wacha continued to throw like one of the best pitchers in baseball on Friday, holding the Padres to just one run over seven innings in a 2-1 loss.

Advice: Wacha struck out six and walked just one. Only a Jedd Gyorko solo homer in the seventh inning prevented Wacha from the shutout. It also prevented him from picking up his 11th win of the year, as the homer tied the game at 1-1. With a 2.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 10-3 record, he's a near lock for the All-Star Game and should be in the Cy Young discussion at the end of the season assuming he stays healthy.

Michael Wacha allowed six hits and one run over six innings in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

Advice: Wacha could have pitched deeper into the game but the Cardinals already had a comfortable lead. The lanky right-hander ranks second in the National League with ten wins and is eighth in ERA (2.77). He's been the best pitcher on the best team in baseball. He's a shoe-in for next month's All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
