A 20/20 Vision

On September 24, 2010, Adam Wainwright defeated the Chicago Cubs 7-1 at Wrigley Field for his first career 20-win season.

Almost exactly 4 years later, Waino secured his second career 20-win season by defeating the Chicago Cubs 8-0 at Wrigley Field.

Wainwright is one of three active pitchers to win 20 games in a year twice. That company includes Clayton Kershaw (2011, ‘14) and Bartolo Colon (‘02, ‘05). Only six others — Bob Gibson (five), Dizzy Dean (four), Mort Cooper (three), Jesse Haines (three), Howie Pollet (two) and Joaquin Andujar (two) — achieved the feat at least twice as a Cardinal.

Congrats to our ace on his historic achievement!
