Wainwright Leads Cardinals Over Brewers

Doyle BarkerApr 24, 2017

Wainwright (1-3) had struggled on the mound this season but showed better command against the Brewers.

Brewers starter Wily Peralta (3-1) lasted only four innings, allowing six runs on nine hits and an intentional walk while failing to strike out a single batter for the first time in 20 starts.

CUBS 6, REDS 5 (11) Anthony Rizzo tied it with a two-out, three-run home run in the top of the ninth, and Kris Bryant hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning, rallying Chicago to a victory over host Cincinnati.

"When I got ahead of hitters, I was making bad pitches", Peralta said.

"(Diaz) was kind of lobbying to be in there today", Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

St. Louis' Dexter Fowler left in the fifth inning with right heel bursitis. Up to this point, St. Louis has struggled on all sides of the ball and needs a charismatic leader to keep the team loose and focused on the goal. "He just wants to be in there", Matheny said. The win improves the Redbirds season mark to 7-10.

Jedd Gyorko hit a solo home run leading off the Cardinals' eighth. To make room for Suter on the roster, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment. He walked two and struck out seven. "Half a game is not going to be enough to straighten something out", Matheny said.

"Ever since we left camp, he's been dealing with some upper respiratory issues that I think they (medical staff) were trying to identify", Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. He threw a season-high 107 pitches, allowing 3 hits and 1 run with 3 strikeouts. He is 4-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 13 career starts against Milwaukee. He's 7-1 with a 2.32 ERA over his last 15 starts. Kluber (2-1) faced 29 batters in the first complete-game shutout in the majors this season.

The St. Louis Cardinals are finally starting to look like the St. Louis Cardinals and now have a pitcher on the hill in Lynn who has had the Brewers number over the course of his career.
