|Cardinals' Wainwright Shakes Off Slow Start
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright dominated after a shaky start and Matt Holliday got his first two RBIs in four games batting third in the St. Louis Cardinals' 4-2 victory over the Florida Marlins on Thursday.
Hanley Ramirez had an RBI single and a walk for the Marlins, who lost for only the second time in eight games. Nate Robertson (4-4) faced an all-right-handed lineup and gave up four runs in six innings.
RBIs by Ramirez and Dan Uggla represented the first first-inning runs allowed by Wainwright (6-2) this season. Florida totaled four hits and had only two runners in scoring position the next six innings against the right-hander, who's 4-0 with a 2.10 ERA in four starts at home.
