Carpenter, Wacha lead Cardinals over Cubs 6-4
ST LOUIS 6, CHICAGO CUBS 4

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Michael Wacha doesn't mind a little bad
weather.

Wacha had to wait out yet another lengthy rain delay, Matt
Carpenter drove in three runs and the St. Louis Cardinals beat
the Chicago Cubs 6-4 Sunday.

St. Louis took two of three from the Cubs and has won four of
six. Chicago has lost three of four.

Rain has figured in all three of Wacha's starts this season. He
actually seemed to embrace a third-inning downpour that halted
play against the Cubs for 46 minutes.

"I'm used to it," he said. "You just have to accept it and
you've got to stay focused. I tried to stay loose and just keep
my mind in what I needed to do."

Wacha's first start of the season was delayed before first pitch
by 2 hours, 40 minutes. He endured a short 12-minute delay at
the outset of his second outing.

Wacha (2-0) allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings
Sunday. He gave up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo on the 16th
pitch of the game, but yielded just one run on three hits the
rest of the way. He struck out eight and walked one.

"At the start, I was a little erratic, but I was able to settle
down a little bit," he said. "I got some quick innings and some
quick outs."

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny says Wacha has the mental makeup
to handle lengthy or short delays.

"He's strong and he knows what to do out there," Matheny said.
"He keeps a good focus. I felt like his curveball was a lot
better after the delay."

Carpenter hit a two-run single in the second inning and added a
sacrifice fly in the fourth that put St. Louis ahead to stay at
4-3. He is tied with Yadier Molina for the team lead with nine
RBI.

"It felt good to get the job done," Carpenter said. "When you
get up in those situations, you just try and put a good at-bat
up there and I thought I did that."

Trevor Rosenthal gave up a run in the ninth, but retired Luis
Valbuena and Emilio Bonifacio with the tying runs on base to
pick up his fourth save in four opportunities.

Chicago starter Edwin Jackson (0-1) allowed four runs and eight
hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked three in a
grueling 114-pitch effort.

"I didn't feel too bad," Jackson said. "I threw a lot of
pitches. I was behind in a lot of counts. They were aggressive,
that's a good hitting team."

Jhonny Peralta highlighted a two-run eighth with an RBI double
that put St. Louis up 6-3.

Rizzo got his club started with his second homer of the season.

"I just got extended," Rizzo said. "I was lucky enough to get
the barrel on it."

After Carpenter singled in two runs in the second, he stole
second and scored on Kolten Wong's single for a 3-2 lead.

The Cubs tied the game in the fourth on a run-scoring single by
Welington Castillo.

Carpenter then gave St. Louis the lead for good with a sacrifice
fly to left that brought in Peter Bourjos, who began the fourth
inning with a triple.

"We did the things we had to at the right times to win,"
Carpenter said.

Trailing 4-3, Mike Olt led off the Cubs seventh with a double
off Wacha. Castillo struck out and reliever Kevin Siegrist
retired Darwin Barney and Bonifacio to end the threat.

Siegrist retired all five batters he faced.

"We had some chances, just couldn't get hits at the right time,"
Rizzo said.

NOTES: The Cubs are winless in their last nine series. Their
last series win came in September when they won two of three in
Cincinnati. .... St. Louis begins a 10-game road trip Monday
with the first of a three-game set in Milwaukee. Lance Lynn
(2-0, 6.55 ERA) takes on Matt Garza (0-1, 2.57) in the opener.
... The Cubs conclude a five-game road trip with two games
against the New York Yankees. Jason Hammel (2-0, 2.63) faces
Masahiro Tanaka (1-0, 3.21) in the first game on Tuesday. ....
St. Louis C Yadier Molina has 11 hits in his last 22 at-bats,
including two hits on Sunday.
