It was just one of those days. Anything that c

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers had finally gotten to Adam Wainwright in the ninth when St. David Njoku Jersey . Louis manager Mike Matheny came to the mound to check if his ace right-hander was tiring. Matheny didnt expect an honest answer. Wainwright stayed in the game anyway. Wainwright got Gerardo Parra to bounce into a double play for his fourth complete game of the season, and the Cardinals beat sliding Milwaukee 9-1 on Sunday. "I told him he had a short leash. Im still waiting for that day when I go out there and hes actually honest if he doesnt feel good," Matheny said. The Cardinals won three of four at Miller Park and lead the NL Central by 4 1/2 games over Pittsburgh, which beat Chicago 10-4 at Wrigley Field on Sunday. "Nows the time weve got to keep the throttle down," Matheny said. "This game can reach up and grab you." The Brewers are well aware of how quickly fortunes can change. Losers of 11 of 12, their freefall continued after spending nearly five months atop the NL Central before dropping into second on Sept. 1. They fell into third after Sundays loss, leapfrogged by Pittsburgh. The Pirates also moved a half-game ahead of Milwaukee for the second NL wild card. "Theres no excuse ... its tough," outfielder Carlos Gomez said. "We know were not playing like a team. Just put it in the past and come tomorrow and win the ... game." St. Louis grabbed a 4-0 lead with four in the fourth against rookie Jimmy Nelson (2-7). Peter Bourjos had the big blow, a triple to left-centre that drove in Yadier Molina and Oscar Taveras. It was more than enough support for Wainwright (17-9), who is tied for the major league lead in victories. The right-hander allowed seven hits in his 20th career complete game. Wainwright had allowed at least three runs in each of his previous three starts, failing to get out of the sixth each time. But feast-or-famine Milwaukee managed just an RBI single by Gomez. "Today was obviously a big win for our team, but you know just a realization of all the little steps Ive been taking over the last few weeks -- I knew it was a matter of time," Wainwright said. And on cue, the Cardinals are in the middle of another September surge. They held the Brewers scoreless until Gomezs pinch-hit single in the ninth drove home Scooter Gennett from second. It was Gomezs first at-bat in a week after being sidelined with a left wrist injury. BAD GLOVES The Brewers helped out Wainwright by grounding into three double plays and committing three errors. "We do this once in a while, and I sure dont like to see it. They dont like it. They work hard, they give a good effort and then we play this sloppy," manager Ron Roenicke said. BIG BOURJOS Milwaukees first miscue came at the start of St. Louis four-run fourth, when Nelsons pickoff attempt of Jon Jay squirted past Jonathan Lucroy at first. Jay then scored on Matt Adams sacrifice fly. Later, Bourjos liner landed in the gap in left-centre and bounced to the wall. The speedy outfielder had more than enough time to sail into third after driving home two runs for a 4-0 lead. "I dont think weve always been clicking on the right cylinders," Bourjos said. "Everybodys clicking right now." MILESTONE Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta got the 1,500th career hit with a fourth-inning single. He added his 20th homer of the year with a two-run shot in the ninth. TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: LF Matt Holliday got a day off. Holliday has gone hitless in four of his last five games, with the exception being a three-hit outing on Thursday night in Milwaukee. Brewers: Gomez had been used as a pinch runner and defensive replacement in recent days before his pinch-hitting appearance Sunday. Roenicke said Gomez was due to see the team doctor Sunday to determine if his star outfielder was ready to return to the starting lineup Monday. UP NEXT Cardinals: Shelby Miller (8-9) gets the ball for the start of a four-game series Monday against Cincinnati. Matheny said he expected another wave of minor-league reinforcements to join the team then. Brewers: Yovani Gallardo (8-8) opens a four-game series at home against Miami. He is 5-0 against the Marlins in seven career starts. Myles Garrett Jersey .

The Northern Irishman then bogeyed the 12th and 13th before only his second birdie of the round at No. 17. "On the rare occasions I got the ball close, I didnt make any putts, so it was one of those days," McIlroy said. "I thought if I could get to 16 under it would be good enough and it turned out that it was as thats what Stephen got to. I just wasnt able to play well enough to get there. It was just one of those days.
