|Pujols' Bat Helps Cardinals Whip Arizona
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Albert Pujols homered twice and doubled with a season-high five RBIs and Adam Wainwright handcuffed the Arizona Diamondbacks into the seventh inning in the St. Louis Cardinals' 8-0 victory on Tuesday night.
Dontrelle Willis (1-1) had another wild outing for the Diamondbacks, walking six, hitting a batter and getting lucky on a really wild pitch thrown behind a batter that caromed back to catcher Miguel Montero for a tag play at the plate in the fourth. The Cardinals had 14 baserunners in 23 at-bats against the 28-year-old lefty, who retired none of four batters to start the fifth and has walked 13 in 7 1-3 innings his last two starts.
Wainwright (11-5) worked his major league-record 23rd consecutive quality start at home.
