Wainwright (13-5) bounces back from his last start when he allowed four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays.

"The results usually follow my delivery," said Wainwright, who lowered his ERA to 1.92. "When I control my delivery -- I told you I was gonna get things under wraps -- and get my arm in the right spot, success was following that.

"They hit some balls hard, but we played some great defense and made some pitches when we needed to."

Cubs rookie pitcher Kyle Hendricks was the tough luck loser allowing only one run, a solo homer to outfielder Matt Holliday.

The win puts the Cardinals (56-48) two games behind Milwaukee for first place in the NL Central.
