You couldn’t have asked for much more from Woody Williams. The Cardinals’ starting pitcher tossed a complete-game, five-hit shut out to beat the Brewers 1-0. But he was also a force at the plate in Wednesday’s pitchers duel. Williams had two hits and scored the winning run when Edgar Renteria knocked him in with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. Williams is 4-0 in his last seven starts and has an ERA of 2.49 in that time. Relievers Ray King and Jason Isringhausen held the Brewers hitless over the last two innings, as Isringhausen picked up his 25th save of the season. The Cardinals are now 60-34, which gives them the best record in baseball. Their lead in the National League Central is now at 10 games after the Cubs beat the Reds and moved back into second place.
