Adam Wainwright notched his 200th career victory as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 on Monday night.
"For at least a night I was a real pitcher out there, the guy that I want to be," said Wainwright, who plans to retire after the season. "Seven innings, shutout, a couple of hits, got through a couple of tough ABs out there and made adjustments, worked in and out, up and down."
He has won consecutive starts -- both against first-place teams -- after going 0-10 with a 10.72 ERA over his previous 11 games between June 24 and Sept. 7.
Wainwright became the 38th pitcher in National League history to reach 200 wins, and the 24th major leaguer to achieve the milestone since 2000.
He's the third pitcher in Cardinals history to reach 200 wins (Bob Gibson, Jesse Haines).
