    Adam Wainwright called Friday's home opener the worst start of his career, but more than anything else, it served as a reminder for the Cardinals' ace.

    Wainwright gave up eight earned runs in only three innings. It was the second shortest outing of his career and only one of two in which he's surrendered eight earned runs. As he continues to make his way back from Tommy John surgery, Wainwright could be discovering that rough outings like Friday's are simply part of the process in returning.

    "I guess it is," he said. "That's not the way I was pitching in Spring Training. I was throwing the ball with a lot of life. Everything was very sharp early in the spring. Toward the end of spring -- I wouldn't call it a dead-arm phase -- but I've certainly got a little ways to go."

    Phillips knows why he's been struggling, pointing to a sore left hamstring that has him playing around 60 percent right now. And he believes the rest of his team will come around at the plate eventually as well.

    "It's hard for me to hit off of my legs. My presence in the lineup is cool. I can get key hits when I need to. My timing is off a little bit," Phillips said. "When it comes to everyone else, I don't know how they feel when they're in the box. You can only go off of production and we're not getting key hits in key situations. We're not having good at-bats. I believe in this team. We've been through it all. When it rains it pours and right now, things aren't going our way."
