Todd Wellemeyer

Todd Allen Wellemeyer (born August 30, 1978 in Louisville, Kentucky) is a right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who plays for the St. Louis Cardinals. He has worked as a starting pitcher this year but has historically been used primarily in long relief.

A graduate of Bellarmine University, he is the only Chicago Cub to earn a save in his major league debut, earning it by striking out three batters in order against Milwaukee after 17 innings of play.

Wellemeyer also picked up the win in the longest scoreless game ever played in Wrigley Field history. He struck out 4 in only 2 innings in a 1-0 marathon 16-inning game. Sammy Sosa hit a game winning single to center field causing Preston Wilson to crash into the wall and lose the ball to win the game in the 16th inning.
