Former Savannah Chain star Adam Wainwright proved why he's in the big leagues.

Wainwright pitched 7 shutout innings to lead the Cardinals to a 10-2 victory over the Phillies.

It was the Phillies 10,000th loss in their history.

They become the first team in any sport to lose 10,000.

Albert Pujols helped out Wainwright's cause with his bat, hitting 2 of the Cardinals six home runs on the day.

Wainwright gave up only 5 hits on the day and struck out 5 to improve his record to 8-7 on the season.

The Phillies were founded 125 years ago and have won just one World Series, in 1980.

For the record, their franchise record is now 8810 wins and 10,000 losses.
