CHICAGO -- Mike Matheny looked at Adam Wainwrights run over the past five years and s
CHICAGO -- Mike Matheny looked at Adam Wainwrights run over the past five years and summed it up with one word. Brooks Orpik Jersey . "Wow," he said. Wainwright joined Clayton Kershaw as the majors only 20-game winners, pitching three-hit ball over seven innings, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 8-0 on Monday night. "I hope he realizes how special that is," Matheny said. "Hes in a very elite group." Wainwright hit the 20-win mark for the second time while matching his career-high for victories, and the Cardinals moved a step closer toward their second straight division title. They remained 2 1/2 games ahead of Pittsburgh in the NL Central with five to play with the Pirates beating Atlanta 1-0. St. Louis clinched its fourth straight playoff appearance on Sunday. Wainwrights run the past five years has been nothing short of jaw-dropping. Twice during that span he has won 20. Two more times he finished with 19 victories, and he hasnt won fewer than 14 in that stretch. "Its a tremendous honour, obviously," Wainwright said about winning 20. "But more important, its a big win for our team." Wainwright (20-9) won his fifth straight start and made it look easy, striking out eight and walking one. He gave up a double to Anthony Rizzo with two out in the first and did not allow another hit until back-to-back singles by Luis Valbuena and Welington Castillo with two out in the seventh. Just like Kershaw did for the Dodgers on Friday, Wainwright picked up his 20th win at Wrigley Field. And when he did it in 2010, victory No. 20 that year also came at the famed old ballpark. He got plenty of support in this one, with the Cardinals pounding Travis Wood (8-13) for seven runs and eight hits over five innings. The Cardinals scored four in the fourth and three in the fifth on the way to their eighth win in 10 games. Matt Holliday had two hits and scored two runs. He also drove in one. Matt Adams chipped in with two hits and two RBIs. Jon Jay added two hits and drove in three, capping a four-run fourth with a two-run single to make it 4-0. Holliday also had a run-scoring double to left and Yadier Molina singled in a run in that inning, and the Cardinals broke it open in the fifth. Matt Carpenter led off that inning with a walk and was ruled safe at second tagging on Randal Grichuks fly to centre following a replay review. He scored on Hollidays bloop single to right, and Adams capped the rally with a two-run single to make it 7-0. Wood felt sharp overall but still couldnt avoid the big innings. Thats something he will try to fix in the off-season. "Wasnt a good year for me overall," said Wood, owner of a 5.03 ERA after making the NL All-Star team last season. "With that being said, it showed me a lot of the stuff that I need to take into the off-season to work on because you learn a lot more about yourself as a pitcher when things arent going good as opposed to when things are." TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: Adams and Carpenter returned to the lineup after missing two games because of a stomach virus thats been battering the team. Nearly half the Cardinals players and coaches have been affected by it in recent days. Assistant batting coach David Bell and pitcher Marco Gonzales were not with the team Monday because of the virus. "Theres still some aftermath (of the virus) going around," Adams said. "But its getting a lot better." Cubs: RF Jorge Soler was back in the Cubs lineup after leaving Saturdays game against the Dodgers as a precaution due to wet conditions. He had a scheduled day off on Sunday. UP NEXT RHP Shelby Miller (10-9, 3.68 ERA) looks to stay on a roll for St. Louis, as the Cardinals continue their three-game series against the Cubs. He is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA in four starts in September. RHP Kyle Hendricks (7-2, 2.28) starts for Chicago. UNFRIENDLY CONFINES The Cardinals are 14-31 in night games at Wrigley Field. LOPSIDED MARGIN The Cubs have been outscored 45-22 while dropping four of five. Tom Wilson Jersey . Millsap will miss Wednesday nights game against the Chicago Bulls. The Hawks say Millsap also will be held out on Thursday at Boston. John Carlson Jersey . Mark Teahen scored the go-ahead run in the home seventh on an error by Scott Sizemore, who had knotted the game with a solo homer in the previous half- inning. Paul Konerko then hit an RBI single which proved to be the winning run. . Orlandos Glen Davis tried to get in the way, only to be driven back into the padding under the basket as the Pelicans forward slammed home a windmill jam.After months of invective, light-heavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones and challenger Daniel (DC) Cormier have gone calm ahead of their UFC 182 storm Saturday night. TSN kicks off its UFC coverage on Saturday with COUNTDOWN TO UFC 182: JONES VS. CORMIER at 7pm et/4pm pt on TSN4 and TSN5. The countdown show leads into two hours of UFC 182 preliminary fight coverage at 8pm et/5pm pt, which features Danny Castillo vs. Paul Felder, Marcus Brimage vs. Cody Garbrandt, Shawn Jordan vs. Jarod Cannonier and Evan Dunham vs. Rodrigo Damm. There were no insults on a media conference call between the 205-pound mixed martial arts stars, who came to blows at an August news conference in the lobby of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In terms of the heat between us, I dont think thats gone anywhere. I just think now you see two guys that are only six days from fighting. Like whats the point of us yelling and screaming at each other anymore? Cormier said on the call Monday evening. Thats done ... Theres no point to that any more. Whats it going to do? All the arguing, all the yelling, all the name-calling, it motivated me during my training. Whats the point in it any more? It serves no more purpose. Added Jones: The fight is here. Theres nothing that can be said or anything to change the outcome of this fight. The work is done. The camp is over. And for me to sit here and be unprofessional and try to insult him and come at him and get in this bickering match to sell a few more pay-per-views, I dont need to, I dont need it. The fights going to sell and the works already been done. Theres a time and place for everything and all the beef and all the craziness was appropriate then. It motivated me, Im sure it motivated him to have great camps. Now the fight is here. The Nevada State Athletic Commission fined Jones US$50,000 and Cormier $9,000 for the Aug. 4 brawl that sent bodies flying after the two fighters clashed during a photo op. Jones (20-1) was ordered to serve four days of community service while Cormier (15-0) was given two days. The taller champion put his forehead on Cormiers face, prompting the challenger to shove him back and soon the backdrop and bodies were flying. The ill feelings continued later that day as the two fighters, from separate rooms at the UFC office, exchanged insults over a satellite feed after an ESPN interview. I wish they would let me next door so I could spit in your face, Cormier, adding an F-bomb, said after the two traded insults. You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, replied Jones. You could never kill me, Cormier responded. I bet you I could, said Jones. Then you should try, Jon, Cormier countered. The UFC detailed all the darts and arrows in a special advance TV show on UFC 182 called Bad Blood. The two fighterrs have had to wait to face off in the cage. Devante Smith-Pelly Jersey. They were originally slated to meet at UFC 178 in September but the bout was pushed back to January after Jones suffered a leg injury during training. Cormier, 35, says their beef dates years back to when Jones disrespected him in their first meeting. Jones, 27, disputes the recollection but at this stage, it hardly matters. The two dont like each other and that sells in the high testosterone, occasionally cartoon-like world of the UFC. They have gone at it since the fight was originally announced in July, with Cormier replacing injured No. 1 contender Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson after the Swede was sidelined by a knee injury. Jones had defeated Gustafsson in an epic five-rounder at UFC 163 in Toronto in September 2013. In the wake of their fight announcement, Jones sent Cormier a I hope youre ready to come to daddy message on social media. Cormier replied via Twitter: I am. Im going to (mess) you up with an F-bomb thrown in for good measure. Cormier also was quick to talk up his Break Bones T-shirts. Tweeted Jones: This is the fight I wanted in the first place. Nothing like fresh meat #Champion2014 Jones young daughter even got into the act, via an Instagram video. DC. My dads going to beat you up. Guaranteed, said the six-year-old. For Jones, Saturday marks the eighth defence of the light-heavyweight title he won from Mauricio (Shogun) Rua at UFC 128 in March 2011 to become the UFCs youngest champion at 23. Jones, an immense physical puzzle at six foot four with an 84-inch reach, has since defeated Quinton (Rampage) Jackson, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, Vitor Belfort, Chael Sonnen, Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira. Cormier, ranked second among UFC light-heavyweight contenders, is a former Olympic wrestler who finished fourth at the 2004 Games in Athens. The five-foot-11 Cormier, a former heavyweight, has won four straight since joining the UFC from Strikeforce where he was heavyweight Grand Prix champion. He has out-struck every UFC or Strikeforce opponent he has faced but this time will have to wade through Jones 12-inch reach advantage to get at the champion. Jones is currently ranked No. 1 in the UFCs pound-for-pound pantheon. Cormier is No. 14. Every fighter between is a current or former champion. So will the fighters bury the hatchet Saturday in Sin City? You know you gain a level of respect by sharing the Octagon with someone, said Cormier. I dont know whats going to happen after the fight. It doesnt really matter to me one way or the other. Said Jones: Every guy Ive beat, Ive had a pretty solid relationship with. Im cordial and theyre cordial. I just kind of go on about my merry life. The bookies have Jones as less than a 2-1 favourite. --- Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
