UNDATED (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have cut their deficit in the National League Central to single digits. They now trail the Cubs by 9 ½ games after completing their first three-game sweep at Wrigley Field since 1988.




Michael Wacha (WAH'-kah) outpitched Jake Arrieta (ar-ee-EH'-tuh) and Aledmys (ah-LEHD-mees) Diaz hit a two-run home run in the Cards' 7-2 victory in the Friendly Confines. Wacha had dropped seven straight decisions before limiting Chicago to two runs and three hits in 6 2/3 innings. Wacha had a two-hit shutout until Willson Contreras chased him with a two-run homer.


Arrieta struggled with his control while dropping to 11-2, yielding one earned run on four hits and four walks in five innings. The Cardinals put together a five-run sixth after Arrieta left, highlighted by Matt Carpenter's two-run double.

The Cardinals have won eight straight road games, their longest such streak since 1982.
