WASHINGTON (AP) Adam Wainwright extended his sterling start to the season - and Washington's mediocre one - by coming within two outs of his second shutout, leading the St. Louis Cardinals past the Nationals 2-0 Tuesday night. The right-hander (4-1) lowered his ERA to 1.93 by going 8 1-3 scoreless innings, allowing only five hits. Edward Mujica got the final two outs for his third save. Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran drove in runs in the fourth off Nationals lefty Ross Detwiler (1-1), who gave up eight hits across six innings.

That loaded the bases for Washington, but no matter: Wainwright struck out Adam LaRoche swi...
