Wainwright Stifles Brewers as Cardinals Win
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright threw a five-hitter and hit a three-run double off fellow first-time All-Star Yovani Gallardo, who left in the third inning with a side injury, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-1 Sunday.

Wainwright's double was the big hit in a five-run third as the Cardinals capitalized on consecutive fielding errors by shortstop Alcides Escobar. Gallardo (8-4) was hurt on the second pitch to the next hitter, Tyler Greene, clutching his side and then departing after visiting with a trainer.

Another Brewers All-Star, Corey Hart, homered for the lone damage against Wainwright (12-5), who struck out nine and walked none for his fourth complete game of the season and seventh of his career.
