(KMOV.com) — Of course it was a curved ball.
Cardinals longtime starter Adam Wainwright reached the milestone moment of 2,000 strikeouts in an afternoon contest with Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday. It was not surprising that Uncle Charlie threw his signature breaking ball for K when Luis Urías swung on Strike 3.

Wainwright became the 85th pitcher in MLB history and recorded 2,000 strikeouts. He is the second pitcher in Cardinals history to join the Hall of Fame Bob Gibson, achieving a 2K milestone in the Ks category with St. Louis.
Another notable achievement of Wayne Wright arrived Thursday, with 200 innings in the season for the first time since 2014. Wayne Wright, who has always been a team-first man, may not look back on these achievements very favorably.
Wayne Wright was one of the least effective starts of the season, completing just four innings while allowing five runs. Brewers outfielder Tyrone Taylor deepened Wayne Wright twice in the game. One was a grand slam and the other was a solo home run.
Cardinals beat Brewers 5-1 as St. Louis aim for 12 consecutive victories.
