 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Adam Wainwright gave up two hits in seven scoreless innings and Yadier Molina put on a rare power display with two homers as the St. Louis Cardinals completed a crucial three-game sweep of the Brewers with an 8-0 victory on Thursday.
It was the first career multihomer game for Molina, who came into Thursday's game with only one home run this season. He drove in all three of the Cardinals' runs through the first eight innings as the third-place Cardinals closed to within 2 1/2 games of the NL Central division lead for the first time since April 20.
The Brewers, who have lost 13 of 18, were swept at home for the first time since Florida took three games at Miller Park last September. The Cardinals outscored the Brewers 28-7 in the series.
Wainwright (11-9), in his first year as a starter after starring as a reliever during the Cardinals' World Series run last year, struck out a career-high eight while walking three.
With two outs in the second inning, Molina drove a 2-2 pitch from Brewers starter Dave Bush (9-9) into the second deck in left field, putting the Cardinals ahead 1-0.
The Cardinals added five runs in the ninth on David Eckstein's three-run double, an RBI single by Albert Pujols, and an error by outfielder Geoff Jenkins.
Cubs 12, Reds 4
CHICAGO (AP) - Mark DeRosa went 5-for-5 with four RBIs and Chicago scored seven times in the seventh to win for just the fifth time in the last 15 games.
Jacque Jones added four hits for the Cubs, who are only two games above .500 but moved within a half game of first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central.
Jason Marquis (10-7) allowed seven hits and four runs - all of those coming in the second - over six innings plus as Chicago salvaged one win in the three-game series.
DeRosa's RBI single off Bobby Livingston (3-3) drove in Ryan Theriot, who had doubled, to break a 4-4 tie in the fourth. The Cubs had 20 hits in the game.
Adam Dunn hit his 32nd homer to lead off the second for Cincinnati.
