Adam Wainwright fired a complete-game, four-hitter on his 39th birthday as the Cardinals beat the Indians 7-2 in St. Louis. He walked two and struck out nine, throwing 122 pitches en route to his third win. Dexter Fowler homered and drove in three runs, and Paul DeJong had three hits and scored twice for St. Louis. Wainwright pitched his gem on the same day Yadier Molina played in his 2,000th game as a Cardinal.
Tyler Naquin homered for Cleveland. Adam Civale took the loss.
Want to send a big thank you out to everybody who wished me a happy birthday today! Today was a special day that I'll never forget. Thank you for always supporting me over the years! I love being a part of @Cardinals nation!
