Normally, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright spreads grape jelly on his PB & J sandwiches. Not on days that he takes the mound, however.

"Always strawberry on game day," he said. "Like Tiger (Woods wearing) red on Sunday — jelly red on start day."

Before his 17th start of the season Wednesday, Wainwright ate half his sandwich. On a night when the temperature was 103 degrees for the first pitch, he went back into the locker room during the game to polish off the other half. He returned to the mound and polished off the Colorado Rockies with seven strikeouts in six innings, aided by some strong support from the bullpen in a 4-1 win.
