The SportsXchange

The St. Louis Cardinals confirmed Friday that right-hander Adam Wainwright will be their starting pitcher on Opening Day.

Coming off Tommy John elbow surgery in 2012, Wainwright posted a 14-13 record with a 3.94 ERA in 32 starts last season.

Kyle Lohse started the Cardinals' opener last season. Wainwright, 31, received the opening-day nod in 2009.

St. Louis' opener is April 1 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
