 NEW YORK (AP) - Adam Wainwright became the first 10-game winner in the majors by throwing seven scoreless innings and sent Matt Harvey to his first loss of the season, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over the New York Mets 2-1 Thursday in a classic pitching matchup.
Wainwright (10-3) retired his first 11 batters before David Wright's single, and allowed four hits with six strikeouts and two walks. He matched his career best by winning his fifth straight start, dropped his ERA to 2.18 and got his 1,000th career strikeout.
Known best in New York for freezing Carlos Beltran with a called third strike to end Game 7 of the 2006 NL championship series, Wainwright had been 0-4 with an 8.46 ERA in four starts against the Mets since beating them on April 18, 2010.
Edward Mujica allowed a long home run to Marlon Byrd in the ninth before remaining perfect in 19 save chances. Mujica got defensive help from second baseman Matt Carpenter, who made a sliding stop on his backhand to prevent the tying run.
Harvey (5-1) had been unbeaten in 14 starts since Sept. 12 and he pitched well enough to win, giving up one run and five hits in seven innings with seven strikeouts and a walk.
St. Louis scored its only run off him in the third on Carpenter's RBI triple. Allen Craig added a run-scoring single in the eighth.
Harvey, who lowered his ERA to 2.04, had no-decisions in eight of previous nine starts, and the Mets have scored just 18 runs while he's been in the game during his last 10 outings, according to STATS.
CUBS 6, REDS 5, 14 INNINGS
CHICAGO (AP) - Pinch-hitter Julio Borbon singled home the winning run with two outs in the 14th inning and Chicago ended Cincinnati's record 12-game winning streak at Wrigley Field.
The Cubs hadn't beaten Cincinnati at home since last Aug. 9. With the win, Chicago avoided a four-game sweep and improved to 3-10 against the Reds this season.
Hector Rondon (1-0) pitched two innings for the win and Chicago's bullpen finished with 13 strikeouts over eight scoreless innings in a game that lasted 5 hours, 7 minutes.
David DeJesus homered and Nate Schierholtz tripled twice for the Cubs, who had lost eight of 10 to fall a season-worst 13 games below .500.
Jonathan Broxton (2-2) took the loss in the longest game for both teams this season.
NATIONALS 5, ROCKIES 4
DENVER (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman homered, doubled and drove in three runs, Ian Desmond got four hits and Washington beat the depleted Colorado Rockies.
The Rockies lost four players and a coach, as well as the rubber match of the three-game series.
Colorado outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler were hurt early and star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left with a rib injury in the eighth. While the Rockies said X-rays on Gonzalez and Fowler were negative and listed both players as day to day, Tulowitzki's injury could be more serious.
Rockies reliever Wilton Lopez and pitching coach Jim Wright were ejected in the seventh.
Craig Stammen (4-2) threw two scoreless innings. Rafael Soriano got his 17th save after giving up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Todd Helton with two outs.
Zimmerman's RBI double off reliever Matt Belisle (4-3) in the eighth broke a tie, and he later scored on Desmond's infield single to make it 5-3.
Gonzalez was hit near the ankle by a foul ball while on deck in the first inning and exited with a bruised left foot. Fowler was hit on the right hand by a pitch from Ross Detwiler after squaring to bunt in the third.
GIANTS 10, PIRATES 0
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Matt Cain allowed two hits over 6 2-3 innings and San Francisco routed Pittsburgh.
A year to the day after throwing a perfect game against Houston, Cain (5-3) was nearly flawless again. He struck out three and walked two, giving up a single to Garrett Jones in the fifth and a double to Andrew McCutchen in the seventh.
Hunter Pence hit his 11th homer, while Buster Posey, Gregor Blanco and Joaquin Arias had three hits apiece for the Giants, who avoided a sweep by spoiling Charlie Morton's return from Tommy John surgery.
Morton (0-1) gave up four runs - two earned - and seven hits in five innings. He also hit three batters with pitches while making his first major league start in more than a year.
