Wainright named first 9-game winner as Cardinals trump Rays 1-0

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida -- Adam Wainwright became the National League's first nine-game winner as the St. Louis Cardinals beat Tampa Bay 1-0 on Tuesday, the Rays' third straight shutout loss.

The Cardinals have three consecutive shutouts for the first time since April 2013. St. Louis, with 13 shutouts this season, was coming off 5-0 victories over Toronto on Saturday and Sunday.

Tampa Bay has been shut out an AL-leading 10 times this season. The Rays, who have lost 14 of 15, have not scored a run in 28 innings.

Wainwright (9-3) scattered seven hits over seven innings. Trevor Rosenthal got the final four outs, including a base-loaded pop fly by Matt Joyce in the eighth, for his 17th save.

Matt Holliday put the Cardinals up 1-0 with his fourth homer this season, a long drive to left center with two outs in the sixth off tough-luck loser Jake Odorizzi (2-7).

Diamondbacks 4, Astros 1 Bronson Arroyo pitched seven strong innings and Aaron Hill had two late RBIs for Arizona.

Arroyo (6-4) matched Houston starter Brad Peacock through seven innings before the Diamondbacks scored two runs off Josh Fields (1-4) in the seventh.

Hill hit a sacrifice fly in the inning and Cody Ross knocked him in with a double to right-center after an error by Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar. Hill added a run-scoring double in the eighth inning to put Arizona up 4-1.

Paul Goldschmidt also homered and Addison Reed worked a perfect ninth for his 16th save. Arizona has won six of eight.

Jon Singleton had three hits for the Astros.

Mets 6, Brewers 2 Taylor Teagarden hit a grand slam in his Mets debut and Daniel Murphy had a two-run shot as New York beat Milwaukee to snap a six-game skid.

Called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday to replace demoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud, Teagarden connected for his second career slam after Marco Estrada walked the bases loaded in the sixth.

Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-0) pitched six effective innings and Murphy homered off Estrada (5-3) in the third.
