Recap: St. Louis vs. Boston

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Kolten Wong smacked a pair of solo homers among his three hits and scored three runs as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Boston Red Sox, 5-2, in the finale of a three-game set.

Adam Wainwright (14-6) struck out seven and allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks over seven innings for the Cardinals, who have won four of their last five games.

Wainwright became the second pitcher in the majors to reach 14 wins this season after Milwaukee's Wily Peralta, who did it earlier Thursday.

"It was just another grind, another battle," Wainwright said. "I think I finally made some good adjustments that helped me in the long run today."

Jhonny Peralta cracked a two-run double among his two hits and scored a run in the victory.

Pat Neshek worked a 1-2-3 ninth to notch his third save of the season.

Brandon Workman (1-5) surrendered four runs on six hits and two walks over 5 1/3 frames for Boston, which has dropped seven of its last nine contests.

"That got me today, I put up a three-spot in the first," Workman said. "I threw well after the first."

The Cardinals opened the scoring with three runs in the first.

Matt Carpenter worked a leadoff walk and Wong followed with a single. After Matt Holliday flied out, St. Louis executed a double steal with Carpenter and Wong.

Matt Adams struck out, but Peralta followed with a slicing one-hop double into the gap in right-center to bring home Carpenter and Wong. Oscar Taveras then rolled a base hit through the hole on the right side to bring home Peralta.

Boston got two runs back in the third.

Brock Holt and Dustin Pedroia began the inning with singles and Mike Napoli singled up the middle with one out to plate Holt. Christian Vasquez's two-out base hit up the middle scored Pedroia to cut the gap to 3-2.

Wong clubbed his first homer of the game into the front row of seats to right in the fifth and launched his second blast deep into the spectators behind right in the seventh to stake the Cards to a 5-2 edge.
