Cardinals 4, Nationals 3

ST. LOUIS — Carlos Beltran hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the fifth inning, and Adam Wainwright settled down after a rough first as the Cardinals reduced to four their magic number for clinching the NL Central title. Wainwright gave up a two-run homer to Jayson Werth in the first but wound up pitching effectively into the eighth, when he was pulled after allowing back-to-back singles.
