Adam Wainwright has no-hitter through 7 innings vs. Rockies

USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals ace is seven innings through a possible no-hitter against Colorado.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright could be six outs away from his first career no-hitter, as he just finished his seventh inning against the Colorado Rockies without allowing a hit on Saturday afternoon.

Just a day after teammate Shelby Miller retired 27 consecutive batters against the Rockies, Wainwright has continued the Cardinals' dominance of Colorado hitters. It's now been 49 plate appearances since the team's last hit, which is probably as ridiculous as it sounds.

Wainwright had been on his way to a perfect game Saturday, retiring the first 13 batters before walking first baseman Todd Helton. He hasn't allowed another man on base since.

The last no-hitter for the Cardinals came on Sept. 3, 2001 by then-rookie Bud Smith against the San Diego Padres. Miller came close to accomplishing the feat Friday night after allowing a single to the first batter of the game, but it's Wainwright that could ultimately enter the record books.
