Carpenter, Wacha lead Cardinals over Cubs 6-4


ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Matt Carpenter drove in three runs, leading Michael Wacha and
the St. Louis Cardinals over the Chicago Cubs 6-4 Sunday.

The Cardinals took two of three from the Cubs. Chicago has lost three of four
overall.

Carpenter hit a two-run single in the second inning and added a sacrifice fly
in the fourth that put St. Louis ahead to stay at 4-3.

Wacha allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. He gave up a two-run
homer to Anthony Rizzo on his 16th pitch of the game.

Wacha struck out eight and walked one.

Trevor Rosenthal gave up a run in the ninth, but retired Luis Valbuena and
Emilio Bonifacio with the trying runs on base to pick up his fourth save in as
many opportunities.

Edwin Jackson allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings.

St. Louis begins a series in Milwaukee tonight. Lance Lynn (2-0) starts for the
Cardinals while the Brewers go with Matt Garza (0-1). Game time is 7:10 with the
pre-game at 6:35 on KTLO-AM.
