ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright pitched into the seventh inning, Paul Goldschmidt and Paul DeJong hit solo home runs and the St. Louis Cardinals ended a five-game losing streak, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1. The 39-year-old Wainwright again stepped up as the Cardinals’ stopper.

Since June 9, he has broken St. Louis skids of six, three, two and five games.

Wainwright allowed one run and six hits, and was pulled after giving up a leadoff single in the seventh.

He struck out eight and walked one.
