Carpenter, Wainwright help Cardinals top Cubs 10-4

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Carpenter drove in two runs and Adam Wainwright saved a tired bullpen by lasting seven innings for the St. Louis Cardinals in their 10-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

It was hardly a vintage performance by Wainwright (2-1). He gave up a homer to Junior Lake on his first pitch and allowed six more hits and three runs after that while striking out eight. The four runs were twice as many as Wainwright yielded in his first two starts.

But the right-hander, who led the majors with 241 2-3 innings pitched last year, was able to give the Cardinals' bullpen some rest. St. Louis relievers Carlos Martinez, Kevin Siegrist and Trevor Rosenthal all threw more than 20 pitches in Friday's 11-inning loss.

The win was Wainwright's 101st with the Cardinals, tying Matt Morris, Larry Jackson and Max Lanier for 10th place on the franchise list.
