Cardinals dominate Cubs, celebrate Wainwright's 20th win

Adam Wainwright did not rev up his fastball past 91 mph against the Cubs on Monday night at Wrigley Field. He didn't need to. Even without the 96-mph heater he flashed in his previous start, Wainwright was plenty sharp enough to dominate the Cubs in an 8-0 victory that made him the majors' second 20-game winner. His curve was snapping, his command was precise and he encountered...
