Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Jon Jay drove in four runs and Adam Wainwright turned in a seven-inning gem to become the National League's second 14-game winner this season, with the pair leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 ousting of the Chicago Cubs in the rubber match of a three-game series from Wrigley Field.
Wainwright (14-7) racked up 11 strikeouts while yielding one run on just five hits and a walk to join Washington's Jordan Zimmermann for the NL lead in victories. The St. Louis ace was backed by Jay's two hits, one an RBI single and the other a game-breaking three-run homer in the seventh inning.
Matt Carpenter added a two-run single and Yadier Molina had two doubles and scored twice for the Cardinals.
Junior Lake had three of Chicago's six hits and knocked in the Cubs' only run with a sixth-inning double. Edwin Jackson (7-13) pitched well in defeat, permitting three runs -- one earned -- despite walking four over six innings.
