Adam Wainwright: ‘Everything I threw was pretty garbage’

Adam Wainwright worked through the regular season with the type of momentum that had him fast-tracked as a favorite for the National League Cy Young Award. He had been even better in the postseason, with a 2-1 record and 1.57 earned run average.

With a sparkling 19-9 record and 219 strikeouts in the regular season, Wainwright was the ideal candidate to take the mound for the Cardinals against Boston’s Jon Lester in Game 1 of the World Series Wednesday night at Fenway Park.
