ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright overcame a career-high seven walks to pitch eight shutout innings, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over Cole Hamels and the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep.

Cubs' Bryant on Cardinals fans: 'I hope they boo all of us'

Cubs' Bryant on Cardinals fans: 'I hope they boo all of us' The St. Louis Cardinals-Chicago Cubs rivalry is as old as sliced bread. 

Adam Wainwright threw eight shutout innings and the St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game sweep of the visiting Chicago Cubs with a 2-1 win on Sunday afternoon. Wainwright (5-5) allowed two hits -- none through the first 5 1/3 innings -- struck out eight and walked a career-high seven.

The rotation stumbles Cardinal starters -- Miles Mikolas, Jack Flaherty and Adam Wainwright -- combined for just 12 innings this weekend. Which means that the Cardinals now have two starting spots up in the air. More will be determined on Wainwright 's timeline to return, but the Cardinals will

The Cardinals got just four hits in their fourth straight win. Chicago was limited to three hits, and lost for the sixth time in seven games.

BOX SCORE: CARDINALS 2, CUBS 1

Wainwright (5-5) didn't allow a hit until Kris Bryant singled with one out in the sixth. He gave up two hits and struck out eight while throwing 126 pitches.

A three-time All-Star, Wainwright walked three of his first five batters. The Cardinals got double plays to end each of the first two innings, and later turned another double play to finish an inning.

Hamels (4-2) gave up one unearned run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out four and walked two.

The Cubs, who swept a three-game series from the Cardinals at Wrigley Field in early May, put runners at the corners with one out in the ninth against Jordan Hicks. John Gant relieved, retired Addison Russell on an RBI grounder and got David Bote to ground out for his third save in four chances.

Gonzales: Boring? Loser? Cubs, Cardinals have bigger concerns this weekend than name-calling

Gonzales: Boring? Loser? Cubs, Cardinals have bigger concerns this weekend than name-calling What's worse, having your city jokingly referred to as being boring? Or having a retooled team test your patience during an 8-18 May? That’s the dilemma facing Cardinals fans certain to be invigorated this weekend by the presence of the Cubs and slugger Kris Bryant, who jokingly referred to St. Louis as “boring” during a lighthearted fireside chat with Ryan Dempster at the Cubs Convention in January. It’s understandable for Cardinals fans to remain upset with Bryant. They take great pride in their support of a storied franchise that has 11 World Series championships and 17 Hall of Famers.

The Cardinals won four straight one-run games against the Cubs to clinch a playoff spot.

Cardinals sweeping the Cubs ? Just another fun weekend in St. Louis! Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong made a dazzling catch on a sinking liner from Anthony Rizzo with two runners on to end Chicago’s eighth and put an exclamation point on the end of Wainwright ’s scoreless performance.

The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead when Jedd Gyorko walked with one out in the fifth, stole second and went to third on an errant throw by catcher Willson Contreras. Kolten Wong, who had two hits, had a sacrifice fly.

Wong, playing second base, made a nice, over-the-shoulder catch of Anthony Rizzo's looper with two on to end the eighth.

Pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter added a two-out, RBI single off Mike Montgomery in the Cardinals eighth.

REYES MAKING PROGRESS

St. Louis RHP Alex Reyes, who suffered a broken finger on April 25, was scheduled to start on Sunday for Triple-A Memphis. Reyes could possibly join the starting rotation as early as next weekend against the Cubs, according to manager Mike Shildt. He coming off a pair of solid rehab performances for Class A Palm Beach.
