Wainwright, Cards Roll Nats

Adam Wainwright tossed a two-hit shutout to guide the Cardinals to an 8-0 win over the Nationals in Washington. Wainwright struck out eight and walked three as he improved to 3-and-1. Matt Adams knocked in three runs for St. Louis, which improved to 10-and-6. Matt Holliday added two RBI for the Cards. The series continues tonight.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. He hurt himself trying to run out a bunt in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game at Milwaukee. Kelly has allowed only one earned run in three starts so far this season. The Cardinals also optioned pitcher Keith Butler to Triple-A Memphis and recalled pitchers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from the same club.
