Baseball schedule / scores for Wednesday

Full sweep cards about Brewers

The cardinals are on a roll. The Cardinals (15-9) beat the rival Brewers of the Central National League (13-13) 5-2 on Wednesday, winning their fifth straight game and completing the three-game sweep. The Brewers, meanwhile, dropped their fourth consecutive game and fell to fourth place.

Adam Wainwright allowed a run in six innings for his 150th career victory, while relay pitcher Jordan Hicks closed the game with the final, a strikeout from current National League Player, Christian Yelich. Wainwright became the fifth pitcher for the Cardinals to reach the mark in 138 seasons.

St. Louis has not had many problems with one of the most difficult times to start 2019, and Our own Dayn Perry took a closer look at the first month of the first-card game.

Paddack excludes Seattle for first major league victory

Behind a gem of rookie starter Chris Paddack, the Padres (14-11) won their third straight game, in a 1-0 victory over the Mariners (16-11). It was Paddack's first MLB victory, and he looked very good. The 23-year-old retired the last 19 batters he faced to end his night. Paddack final line: 7 IP, H, 0 R, BB, 9 SO, HBP, 83 launches. The blow, the walk and the shot hit came in the first inning.

Paddack reduced his effectiveness from 2.25 to 1.67, and became the first pitcher in the Live Ball Era to start his career with five consecutive games, allowing 3 hits or less (while facing at least 15 batters).

  • Rays infielder Joey Wendle will do go to the list of injured. He was diagnosed with a fracture in his right wrist, after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Royals.
