On the 27th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official Major League Baseball website, shared St. Louis Manager Oliver Marmol’s opinion regarding Wainwright’s additional appearance as a mound.
According to this, Wainwright will not play in the remaining games this season. In other words, the game against the Milwaukee Brewers, who achieved 200 wins, became his retirement game.
Wainwright enjoyed the honor of achieving his 200th career win in the home game against the Milwaukee Brewers held at Busch Stadium on the 19th.토토사이트
Although he showed poor performance throughout this season, he pitched the same way as before, going 7 scoreless innings in this game. Achieved 200 wins in front of home fans.
Since St. Louis has three home games remaining against the Cincinnati Reds from the 30th to October 2nd, Wainwright’s last fan service was expected.
However, St. Louis and Wainwright’s selection was decided to end his 18-year major league career in the 200th win game.
Accordingly, Wainwright’s final performance was 478 games (411 starts), 2,668 1/3 innings pitched, 200 wins, 128 losses, and an ERA of 3.53. The number of strikeouts is 2,202.
Wainwright achieved 195 wins until last year, and his ERA was also maintained at the 3-point range, so it seemed like he would reach 200 wins relatively easily.
However, Wainwright showed signs of being unable to overcome his age this season, and ended his career after reaching his dramatic 200th win at the end of September.
