St. Louis homers 4 times to top Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Adam Wainwright hit 1 of 4 Cardinals homers and struck out a career-high nine in seven innings, lifting St. Louis to an 8-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

Nick Stavinoha, Colby Rasmus and Chris Duncan also homered for the Cardinals to snap a 4-game skid against their NL Central rivals.

Wainwright (5-2) lost a 1-0 decision on May 16 against Brewers starter Jeff Suppan despite giving up just two hits over eight innings. This time, the 27-year-old right-hander made sure the Cardinals scored at least one run and worked out of 2 bases-loaded jams, finishing by scattering five hits and two walks.
