ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Washington Nationals by a score of 4-1. The win cuts the Cardinals magic number to two games. 

Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller didn't have a Michael Wacha esque day, but nonetheless got the job done. In six innings of action, Miller gave up one run on four hits while striking out three batters.

Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmerman was tagged with the loss after surrendering four runs on six hits in seven innings of action. Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal was credited with the save. 

The lone run for the Nationals came in the first inning when outfielder Bryce Harper singled to center field and scored fellow outfielder Denard Span to give the Nationals the early lead. Second baseman Matt Carpenter's groundout RBI sent shortstop Daniel Descalso home in the third inning, which tied the game at 1-1.

A fourth inning RBI single by catcher Yadier Molina broke the 1-1 tie and scored first baseman Matt Adams and outfielder Matt Holliday. Adams hit a solo shot in the sixth inning to extend the Cardinal's lead to three runs. 

The Cardinals will look to close in on the division title as they face off against their division rival Chicago Cubs tomorrow. Lance Lynn will be on the mound for the Cardinals to duel Travis Wood.
