Cardinals Tip Padres

Adam Wainwright pitched eight strong innings and allowed two runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts, leading the Cardinals over the Padres 3-2 at Busch Stadium. Wainwright leads the National League in wins with 13. David Freese had two hits and drove in a pair of runs and Edward Mujica pitched out of a jam in the ninth inning to earn his 28th save. Mujica got help from a catch at the wall from Allen Craig that took away what could have been an extra-base hit.
