Wacha goes for Cards in must-win vs. Pirates

ST. LOUIS -- Michael Wacha's last appearance Monday night didn't exactly inspire a whole lot of confidence.

But neither did Jaime Garcia or Luke Weaver, who were strafed before and after Wacha in the St. Louis Cardinals' 15-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. So Wacha will draw the start Saturday in St. Louis' must-win game with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium.

The Cardinals are one game behind the San Francisco Giants for the second wild-card spot in the National League with two to play.
