Adam Wainwright selected to start fourth consecutive Opening Day - A Hunt and Peck

If there was any doubt who would get the start, it can be put to rest now.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

April 3, 2016 will mark Adam Wainwright's official return to the rotation as he is set to make his first start since an injury to his Achilles last April. April 3, 2016 also marks Opening Day. Adam Wainwright taking the hill on Opening Day should be a familiar sight for Cardinals fans, as this will be his fourth consecutive Opening Day start and fifth in his career. This will put him in elite company with the likes of Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, and Chris Carpenter as Cardinal pitchers to make more than five or more Opening Day starts, with only Dean and Gibson having made at least four in a row.

Wainwright could not be reached for comment, but sources say upon hearing the news he immediately ran to tell Yadier Molina.*
