Cardinals 5, Cubs 3
ST. LOUIS — Michael Wacha's seven strong innings and two-run single in the second lifted the Cardinals. He had lost three straight decisions since beating the Cubs on April 13. Trevor Rosenthal, who blew a save Tuesday, inherited a one-out, bases-loaded situation in the eighth. He gave up only a sac fly then pitched a perfect ninth. The Cubs are off to their worst start since 13-26 in 2002.
