Marlins blanked by Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright
Marlins' four-game win streak snapped
ST. LOUIS – Adam Wainwright threw a three-hit shutout to keep rolling in July, and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Miami Marlins' four-game winning streak with a 5-0 victory Saturday night.
Jhonny Peralta homered and Stephen Piscotty had two hits, a walk and two RBIs.
Wainwright (9-5) struck out five with two walks and didn't allow a hit until Adeiny Hechavarria doubled to open the sixth.
The team's longtime ace received a standing ovation in the eighth before striking out for the fourth straight time, then retired the 2-3-4 hitters in order to end it.
The 6-foot-7 right-hander is 3-0 in three starts this month, allowing one run in 22 innings.
The shutout was the 10th of his career and first since Sept. 17, 2014, against the Brewers.
