Wainwright joins Cardinals two-hit complete game list

Adam Wainwright (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)When Adam Wainwright tossed a two-hit complete game vs. the Milwaukee Brewers Friday night, he joined a long list of  St. Louis Cardinals pitchers who pitched a no, one or two hitter. Specifically, his was the 97th such game since 1952.

It was Wainwright’s first entry on the list, however, where 11 pitchers had at least three. Bob Gibson being on top is not surprising, but some of the other names are.

Here are all the Cardinals pitchers with three or more, followed by the entire list.
