Cardinals news from a Sabermetric point of view

Twelve Days of Christmas 2013: Day 6

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

Six stars a-shining

Five Waino years;

Four walkoff wins
Three ‘lowed runs
Two golden gloves
And a base hit to a Rockie.

  1. Shelby Miller allowed a leadoff hit, then retired the final 27 Colorado Rockies in order, including 13 strikeouts, for a one-hitter on May 10.
  2. Adam Wainwright won his second and Yadier Molina his sixth Gold Glove in 2013.
  3. The Cardinals allowed 3.68 runs per game in 2013, their lowest since 1985, helping them to the biggest run differential in the league.
  4. The Cardinals won four regular-season games on the final play (and two in the playoffs):
    July 6
    August 13
    August 15
    September 13
    NLCS Game 1
    World Series Game 3
  5. The Cardinals and Adam Wainwright agreed to a five-year, $97.5-million contract extension on March 28, the largest deal for a pitcher in franchise history.
  6. Six Cardinals represented the National League as All-Stars: Elected starters Carlos Beltran and Molina, and manager selections Adam Wainwright, Matt Carpenter, Allen Craig and Edward Mujica (replacement for Wainwright).
