Wainwright baffles Rockies over 7 innings in Cards' 3-0 win

Adam Wainwright silenced Colorado's bats yet again — maybe even some critics, too.

"No matter how many times I keep telling people, 'I'm sick and tired of hearing he's not what he once was,' I've got to prove it," the 35-year-old Wainwright said. "I'm working on shutting those people up."

The right-hander kept up his mastery of the Rockies by scattering three hits over seven innings, Tommy Pham hit a two-run homer and the St. Louis Cardinals beat Colorado 3-0 on Saturday night.

Wainwright (5-3) struck out six and retired the last 10 batters he faced as he moved to 10-1 with a 1.56 ERA over his career against Colorado.
