Cardinals Win Pitchers' Duel Over Braves

Former Brave farmhand and current Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright and Japanese import Kenshin Kawakami staged a little bit of a pitcher's battle, but the Cardinals squeezed out enough runs to win 2-1.

Wainwright allowed six hits and one run in five innings of work. He didn't walk any batters and he struck out four batters. Kawakami allowed seven hits and two runs in 4 2/3 innings. He walked one batter and struck out one.

Third baseman Martin Prado went 3-3 and drove in the Braves' only run in the fourth. Jeff Francoeur went 2-2 and scored that run. Second baseman Skip Schumaker had two hits for the Cardinals. Albert Pujols and Jason LaRue drove in the runs for the Cardinals.

W - Adam Wainwright (2-1)
L - Kenshin Kawakami (1-2)
S - Josh Kinney (1)
