Wainwright goes after win 15

JONESBRORO, Ar(KAIT) St. Louis Cardinal pitcher Adam Wainwright takes to the mound tonight looking to pick up his fifteenth win and to become the first in the majors to do so this season.

The Cards look to rebound after being shut out last night.  Albert Pujols went an uncharacteristic 0-4, and Cardinal pitcher Mitchell Boggs gave up five runs and nine hits in a brief four inning stint.

Taking the hill for the Dodgers tonight is hard throwing Clayton Kershaw, who has posted an impressive 1.86 home ERA this year.

St. Louis still holds a six game lead in the NL Central.  The closest contender, the Chicago Cubs, have played poorly as of late and are quickly fading away from contention.
