ST. LOUIS -- Adam Wainwright tried bragging about his hitting prowess, and broke down laughing in mid-sentence.

It was no surprise that the Cardinals right-hander, working his way back into ace status after reconstructive elbow surgery sidelined him all of 2011, kept pace with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

 

Wainwright's first two RBIs of the season helped knock out Kershaw in the sixth inning in a game that began in 103-degree heat as St. Louis ended Los Angeles' five-game winning streak with an 8-2 victory Tuesday night.
