St. Louis Cardinals (44-40) at San Francisco Giants (47-36), 10:15 p.m. (ET)

(SportsNetwork.com) - Adam Wainwright tries to become the National League's first 11-game winner on Wednesday when the St. Louis Cardinals continue their three-game series with the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park.

Wainwright was denied a win his last time out in Los Angeles, but it was through no fault of his own, as he gave up a just a run and five hits in eight innings to the Dodgers. Still, he fell to 10-4 to go along with a 2.01 ERA in his team's 1-0 loss.

Over four June starts Wainwright was 2-1 with a 1.16 ERA. He has finished at least eight innings in eight of his 16 starts and has allowed one run or less in 10 of them.

San Francisco, though, has given Wainwright fits over the course of his career and that was certainly the case back on May 30, when the Giants reached him for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings. He is 3-5 lifetime against them with a 3.38 ERA in nine starts.

Opposing Wainwright will be righty Ryan Vogelsong, who has lost two of his last three decisions. Vogelsong was defeated by Cincinnati on Thursday, but was terrific, as he gave up just a run and five hits and struck out seven over six innings of his team's 3-1 loss.

Vogelsong, who is 5-4 with a 3.96 ERA on the year, did not get a decision versus the Cardinals earlier in the year and is 2-5 in 18 games (8 starts) against them with a 6.60 ERA.

San Francisco can only hope Vogelsong delivers the way Tim Lincecum did in Tuesday's opener, as the right-hander followed up his no-hitter from a week ago by tossing eight scoreless innings in the Giants' 5-0 win.

Pablo Sandoval smacked his 100th career homer in the win to help San Francisco snap a four-game losing streak and move a half game back in front of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.

Marco Gonzales (0-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits and four walks over 4 1/3 frames for St. Louis, which has dropped five of its last seven games.

San Francisco has won four of its five matchups with the Cardinals this season.

National Hockey League All-Star Game Capsule

John Tavares recorded four goals and Jakub Voracek followed with three scores and three assists, as Team Toews walked away with a 17-12 decision over Team Foligno in the 2015 All-Star Game from Nationwide Arena, the highest-scoring mid-season event in league history. The 2001 event in Denver held the previous mark of 26 combined goals in a 14-12 North American victory over the World, but the new record was set when Jonathan Toews put his own team ahead by a 16-11 count with 5:39 remaining in the contest. Toews and Patrice Bergeron each ended up with a goal and four helpers, with Filip Forsberg, Rick Nash and Tyler Seguin adding two strikes apiece. Corey Crawford -- the last of three goaltenders to give up four goals -- stopped 14-of-18 shots in the third period to earn the win. Ryan Johansen from Team Foligno picked up the MVP award, pacing his side with two goals and as many assists. Patrick Kane and Steven Stamkos added two goals and one assist apiece, while Claude Giroux totaled three points on a tally and two helpers. Marc-Andre Fleury took the loss, charged with seven goals on 16 shots in the second period.
