Cards complete sweep of Brewers 8-0

Cards complete sweep of Brewers 8-0

Adam Wainwright gave up two hits in seven scoreless innings and Yadier Molina hit two homers as the St. Louis Cardinals completed a crucial three-game sweep of the Brewers with an 8-0 victory on Thursday.
It was the first career multihomer game for Molina, who came into Thursday's game with only one home run this season. He drove in all three of the Cardinals' runs through the first eight innings as the third-place Cardinals closed to within 2 1/2 games of the lead in Major League Baseball's National League Central Division for the first time since April 20.
Cubs 12, Reds 4
In Chicago, Mark DeRosa went 5-for-5 with four RBIs and Chicago scored seven times in the seventh to win for just the fifth time in the last 15 games.
Jacque Jones added four hits for the Cubs, who are only two games above .500 but moved within a half game of first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central.
Jason Marquis (10-7) allowed seven hits and four runs _ all of those coming in the second _ over six innings plus as Chicago salvaged one win in the three-game series.
