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.

Padres relievers lead 5-3 win over Cardinals

Sports

July 21st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Edinson Volquez was bailed out by his bullpen and earned the victory in San Diego’s 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night. Nick Vincent, Dale Thayer, Luke Gregorson and Huston Street worked an inning apiece after Volquez (7-8) faded at the end of a five-inning outing. Street was perfect in the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances after Carlos Quentin’s RBI double off Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth put the Padres up by two runs.

Lance Lynn (11-5) lost for the fourth time in five starts, allowing four runs in five innings. Allen Craig had a two-run single and 29-year-old rookie Brock Peterson had an RBI groundout in his first major league at-bat after getting called up to replace injured Matt Holliday.

Jedd Gyorko, Everth Cabrera and Nick Hundley added an RBI apiece for San Diego, which had lost 19 of 23.
