Cards' Wainwright has HR, 4 RBIs in first win of season

Cards' Wainwright has HR, 4 RBIs in first win of season”

He started his turn-around in Milwaukee last night and held his own cause with the bat in a 6-3 Cardinals victory over the Brewers.

Aledmys Diaz arrived at Miller Park for Saturday night's game with a stiff back and a sore shoulder that kept him out of the starting lineup. The Milwaukee Brewers are 2-8 this season when allowing more than three runs and 7-1 when allowing three or less runs.

Cardinals: Reliever Kevin Siegrist has given up 10 walks and two home runs in 6 1/3 innings this season, leading to concerns about his arm.

The Cardinals added three runs in the fourth on an RBI double by Randal Grichuk and a bases-loaded single by Wainwright that scored two. Braun made a diving catch on Kolten Wong's soft liner, but his throw to second from his knees sailed out of play down the first-base line, allowing a run to score. Leake was 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA with 20 strikeouts and two walks facing the Brewers last season. Up to this point, St. Louis has struggled on all sides of the ball and needs a charismatic leader to keep the team loose and focused on the goal.

Wainwright ripped a two-run home run into the second deck in left field off Wily Peralta (3-1) to put the Cardinals up 2-1 in the third. He walked two and struck out five, but needed Thames' NL-leading eighth home run and seventh in the last eight games for his first win in four starts.

The Brewers have hit two or more home runs in a franchise-best six consecutive games and the 11th time overall.

"Too many missed opportunities", Matheny said. "Half a game is not going to be enough to straighten something out", Matheny said. It's been a good return for him after he sat out the entire 2016 season.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Wainwright's hitting turned out to be the difference. "No restrictions", Counsell said.

Brewers: RHP Matt Garza (right groin strain) threw a bullpen session on Saturday. Lynn is 8-3 with a 2.36 ERA in 14 career starts against Milwaukee. Tonight, both try to go up 2-1 in the series.
