ST. LOUIS (AP) – Adam Wainwright worked eight sharp innings for his National League-leading 13th win and Allen Craig made a game-ending leaping catch at the left field wall as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 3-2 on Sunday.

Craig has 12 hits and six RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak for the Cardinals, who took two of three in both series against the Padres this season. The St. Louis defense turned three double plays behind Wainwright (13-5), who allowed two runs with seven strikeouts and worked around two walks.

Yonder Alonso singled three times with an RBI for the Padres. Eric Stults (8-8) allowed three runs on eight hits in six innings, stranding two runners in the second and fifth.
