Wainwright's Arm, Bat Lead Cardinals Over Brewers
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright pitched a five-hitter and also contributed at the plate Saturday night, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Wainwright (9-10) moved closer to .500 after starting the season at 0-3. He threw 73 of 98 pitches for strikes, walking none and fanning seven.

All of Wainwright's strikeouts came during a stretch between the third and seventh innings when he retired 13 batters in a row. The complete game was his second of the season and 10th of his career.

Wainwright also hit an RBI double and a single, and he scored a run.

Carlos Beltran hit his 25th homer, giving him an NL-leading 77 RBIs. Jon Jay also homered for the Cardinals.
