Cardinals Club Cubs

Adam Wainwright bolstered his NL Cy Young resume as the Cardinals clobbered the Cubs 6-2 at Busch Stadium. Wainwright allowed two hits and a walk over five-and-third innings to improve to 19-and-9. Matt Holliday hit a two-run home run for St. Louis, which has a one-game lead on Atlanta for the National League's top record. Yadier Molina was 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI and a run scored in the win. Seth Maness picked up his first save. Edwin Jackson gave up six runs in under three innings for the loss. He left early with lat discomfort on his right side. Anthony Rizzo lifted a solo shot for Chicago, which dropped to 66-and-95.
