It’s Bumgarner vs. Zito (er, Wainwright) in Game 5

Wainwright offers his antidote for whipping winds in SF

AT&T Park is a pitcher’s ballpark, yes. But the distinctive conditions in San Francisco also can work against a pitcher, as Game 3 illustrated on Tuesday — with swirling winds confounding Cardinals right fielder Randal Grichuk and his Giants counterpart, Hunter Pence. Adam Wainwright, who will start Game 5 for St. Louis on Thursday, noticed the Candlestick-like moments. He also figures it’s his job to prevent the wind from coming into play. “One great defense against all that is keeping the ball on the ground,” Wainwright said. “You’ve never seen the wind push a ground ball...
