Molina is in the final year of his big-league career and the two of them just keep on keeping on, breaking more records as time goes by.
They’re climbing the list of starts all-time by one battery.
This is Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina's 307th regular-season start as a battery, passing Red Faber & Ray Schalk for the 3rd-most common regular-season starting battery since 1900, trailing only:
Mickey Lolich-Bill Freehan: 324
Warren Spahn-Del Crandall: 316

History In The Making
Barring an injury or another type of disruption, Wainwright and Molina should pass both batteries by the end of this season, which would give Molina a nice little sendoff in his final year.
If Wainwright also retires and they break the record, it will be fitting to see the two of them go out together along with Albert Pujols after making some important history.
These two have been at it since Wainwright made his MLB debut late in the 2005 season.
They’ve closed out several postseason series together, including the 2006 NLCS and World Series.
They’ve won two rings together and are hoping to get one last run in before it’s all said and done.
These two are brothers and it’s hard to imagine having one without the other.
They’re almost like two complementary halves of a single great player.
It would be great to see them break the record for most starts as a battery.
They only have 18 starts to go before they can accomplish that.
