Matt Carpenter and Adam Wainwright will spend the 2018 season trying to scare each other

(Chesterton, Eric)

Spring is a time of new beginnings. The days get longer, flowers come into bloom and a new season of baseball starts.
For Cardinals teammates Adam Wainwright and Matt Carpenter, spring in 2018 also marks the start of a new competition: The Scare Games. Throughout the season, they'll attempt to scare each other and record their attempts at doing so.
Wainwright started off the games with an early win:

Carpenter responded with a valiant effort. Unfortunately, Wainwright displayed nerves of steel:

With a full season of pranks and scare attempts yet to come, Carpenter will have plenty of time to find Wainwright's weaknesses. The score won't stand at 1-0 for long.
