Wainwright stymies Dodgers

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Adam Wainwright worked eight scoreless innings and the St. Louis Cardinals roughed up Chad Billingsley in a six-run sixth inning of a 10-0 victory Tuesday night that saddled the Los Angeles Dodgers with their first 3-game losing streak of the season.

The Dodgers have the majors' best record at 62-38 and were the last team to lose three in a row, going a franchise-record 99 games before falling in their 100th game. That shattered the previous mark of 73 games in June 1965.

Billingsley (10-6) had a one-hitter through five innings before falling apart in a game that was delayed 1 hour, 25 minutes before the start due to the threat of heavy rain that never came.
