(AP) -- While Adam Wainwright has had plenty of success against the Milwaukee Brewers, Yovani Gallardo hasn't been able to figure out why the St. Louis Cardinals give him so much trouble. St. Louis seeks a fifth straight win Saturday while sending host Milwaukee to a fourth consecutive defeat. Wainwright (4-2, 2.03 ERA) has gotten off to a solid start, striking out 43 while walking only three in 44 1-3 innings. He pitched well Monday but had his four-start winning streak come to an end, giving up two runs and five hits in seven innings of a 2-1 loss to Cincinnati. "It was a tough game to lose," Wainwright told the team's official website. "Sometimes you have to match up zeros with someone who is throwing great, and I didn't match zeros." Wainwright put up plenty of zeros in his best outing of the season April 13, tossing a four-hitter and striking out a career high-tying 12 while also going 3 for 3 with two RBIs in an 8-0 win over Milwaukee.

Cardinals call up Carlos Martinez

At 17-11, the St. Louis Cardinals sit atop the NL Central and are tied with Atlanta and Colorado for the best mark in the National League. There is one major weakness with the Cards, though -- their bullpen has been an absoloute disaster in the absence of Jason Motte. Their relievers are putting up the worst ERA (5.90), highest opponent OBP (.359), highest opponent SLG (.454) and...

Shelby Miller will try to provide the NL Central -leading Cardinals with yet another outstanding...

Brewers' Estrada: 'It was a bad outing'

MILWAUKEE Marco Estrada's body language screamed of frustration out on the mound Sunday afternoon. Afterwards, that frustration was mixed with anger as the right-hander's inability to help his team snap its losing streak was eating away at him in the home clubhouse. Estrada lasted just 3-13 innings, allowing eight earned runs while walking five in Milwaukee's 10-1 loss...

Dillard, 29, pitched in the majors for the Brewers from 2008-2009 and 2011-2012. A 34th round pick by Milwaukee in the 2002 draft, Dillard spent six seasons in the team’s minor league...

With Boggs struggling in the first month of the season, Mujica has taken hold of the closer role while Boggs continued...

Peralta unlucky as Cardinals bat around in third inning

MILWAUKEE -- It was just one of those days for Wily Peralta. One inning filled with a whole lot of bad luck left him with a pitching line unworthy of how he pitched.

The Cardinals scored all six of their runs in a 6-5 victory off Peralta with two outs in the third inning...
