Cards' Adam Wainwright aims to get back on track vs. Pirates

Adam Wainwright will try to reverse his late-season fade Sunday when the St. Louis Cardinals attempt to complete a three-game sweep of the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Cardinals (92-66) posted 2-1 and 13-3 wins over the Pirates (59-99) in the first two games of the series.

"This team needs me to pitch well if we're going to win the World Series; I really need to be a part of it," Wainwright said. "I'm frustrated. The stuff is not great."
