ST. LOUIS (AP) --Adam Wainwright threw a four-hitter and drove in two runs with three hits, two in a seven-run sixth inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals shut out the Milwaukee Brewers for the second straight game with a 8-0 victory on Saturday.

Milwaukee ace Yovani Gallardo (0-1) endured yet another setback against his nemesis, falling to 1-10 with a 6.83 ERA against St. Louis after getting charged with five earned runs in 5 1-3 innings. Gallardo, a 16-game winner coming off his fourth consecutive 200-strikeout season, was 0-2 with a 12.34 ERA in three starts against St. Louis last season.

The Cardinals have outscored their opponents 23-1 the last three games and are 4-1 on their opening homestand heading into the finale Sunday. The Brewers, minus injured sluggers Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez, haven't scored in 25 straight innings and are 1-8 since winning opening day.
