Cards’ pitcher makes history
MILWAUKEE — Adam Wainwright joined Hall of Famer Bob Gibson as the only St. Louis Cardinals’ pitchers with 2,000 strikeouts, fanning Milwaukee’s Luis Urias in the fourth inning Thursday.
The 40-year-old right-hander became the ninth active pitcher with 2,000. Gibson got his 2,000th strikeout when Pittsburgh’s Roberto Clemente was called out on July 13, 1969. Gibson, who died last October, finished with 3,117.
St. Louis won the game, 8-5, good for its 12th win in a row, giving the team a solid hold on the final wild card spot in the National League. The Cardinals went into the game up five games on the next closest competitor, Cincinnati.
OBJ uncertain about playing
BEREA, Ohio — Odell Beckham Jr.’s comeback is down to days, but the Browns star wide receiver didn’t commit to playing Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
“We’ll see,” Beckham said, shrugging his shoulders when pressed about his status for Cleveland’s third game.
Beckham hasn’t played since suffering a season-ending knee injury last October in Cincinnati, prematurely ending his third season with the Browns.
The flashy 28-year-old spoke to reporters Thursday for the first time in nearly a year. The Browns, off to a 1-1 start, are also without fellow receiver Jarvis Landry, who is on the IL with a knee injury.
