News: Wainwright posted his 19th win, pitching a shutout Wednesday night as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 to hold their 2 1/2-game edge in the NL Central. This was the Cardinals' 21st shutout of the season, their most since 1968 when Bob Gibson and the rest of the staff had 30. Impact: Wainwright (19-9) worked around seven hits and tied the Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw for the major league wins lead. He struck out seven and walked two in his ninth career shutout. He has thrown three this year, matching Detroit's Rick Porcello and Miami's Henderson Alvarez for most in the majors. (STATS, 2:42pm)
