Jeremy Hazelbaker, who pinch ran for Peralta, scored the winning run on Grichuks flare to right.Wainwright dueled with Milwaukees Wily Peralta for seven innings, and they left a 1-1 game for the bullpens to settle.It was a resurgent performance for Wainwright, who began his 35th birthday by watching video of his younger self and deciding to make some changes.Step one: Pant legs up.Step two: Stop throwing like an old man.I changed everything up. I went pants up, and I went stirrups, Wainwright said. I watched all my good games. It was just obvious how much more aggressive my delivery was.Wainwright retired the first nine batters until Jonathan Villar singled leading off the fourth. Wainwright gave up three hits and one run in seven innings. He struck out seven and didnt walk a batter.That was the best fastball hes had all year, Matheny said. I think he wanted to prove that turning 35 isnt that big of a deal.Wainwright missed most of last season with a torn Achilles tendon.Thirty-four was a bad year for me, he said. Im 35 now. Ive turned over a new leaf.Neither team had a hit until the fourth and neither scored until the sixth.St. Louis Jedd Gyorko broke the scoreless tie with a two-out home run in the sixth. The Cardinals have homered in 19 consecutive games, tying a franchise record set in July 2006.Martin Maldonados run-scoring double tied it in the bottom of the inning.Peralta retired the first nine batters before surrendering a single to Matt Carpenter, who led off the fourth.Peralta has pitched well since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Aug. 8 after struggling earlier in the year. He gave up three hits and one run in seven innings, walking one and striking out a season-high 10. It marked the second time in his career that he reached double digits in strikeouts.Peralta had not gone more than six innings in a game this season.When youre throwing the ball good, your confidence is always going to be high, Peralta said. Since Ive come back, Ive been able to execute the pitches when I want to.The Brewers put two runners on in the ninth, but Oh struck out Chris Carter to end the threat. Milwaukee has lost six straight, all at home.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: SS Aledmys Diaz has been sent to the teams facility in Jupiter, Florida, as he recovers from a hairline fracture in his right thumb that occurred in July. Diaz could serve as a designated hitter in a minor league rehab assignment sometime this week but still must go through more tests before he begins throwing.Brewers: INF Will Middlebrooks (lower leg strain) was activated from the disabled list and outrighted to Triple-A. Middlebrooks can refuse the assignment and become a free agent. It didnt look like there was going to be playing time for him in September, manager Craig Counsell said.UP NEXTCardinals: Luke Weaver (1-1, 3.60 ERA) will make his fourth major league start and first against the Brewers. He earned his first win in his last start against Oakland on Friday.Brewers: Matt Garza (4-6, 4.89) is 4-5 with a 4.25 ERA in 13 career starts against St. Louis.
