Game 64, Mariners at Cardinals
French vs Wainwright, 4:09 pm.
Welcome to the rotation, Mr. French – now meet Mr. Pujols. Good luck.
In a single game, anything can happen, but this is something like the mismatch to end all mismatches. Adam Wainwright is one of the best pitchers in baseball, and the Mariners are extremely unlikely to get much in the way of offense against him. Meanwhile, Luke French has to use his pitch-to-contact approach to try and get guys like Pujols, Matt Holiday, and Ryan Ludwick out. This could get really ugly.
