SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Adam Wainwright allowed four hits over 7 2-3 innings, Matt Carpenter continued to feast on San Francisco pitching and the St. Louis Cardinals ended a scoring drought, beating the Giants 2-0 Wednesday night.

Carpenter had three hits and drove in a run, improving to .520 (26 for 50) against the Giants to help the Cardinals end a three-game losing streak. Matt Holliday added two hits and an RBI.

Wainwright (11-4) took over the NL lead in ERA (1.89) and wins. He walked two and struck out one and his infielders combined to record 18 outs.

Trevor Rosenthal recorded the final three outs for his 25th save in 28 chances after giving up an infield hit to Hunter Pence to start the ninth.

Ryan Vogelsong (5-5) gave up two runs on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out eight.
