Wacha allows five runs, fans six in loss

Posted 1 day ago. via mlb.com

Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha lost after allowing five runs on six hits (two homers) and no walks with six strikeouts over six innings Sunday at the Cubs.

Spin: Outside of a Wilson Contreras two-run homer in the sixth, Wacha once again looked in control on the mounding, throwing 70 of 105 pitches for strikes and inducing eight groundouts. With the recent hot stretch, Wacha has elevated his K/9 to 8.94, which looks supported by a 10.1 percent swinging strike rate. The right-hander entered the contest with a 2.93 ERA at home (compared to 5.13 on the road), however, so he is best utilized as a streaming option in standard formats. He looks set for a home start against the D-backs on July 28.
