Help for Adam
Photos
Cardinals 14, Pirates 7
Albert Pujols' homer helped Adam Wainwright win his Major League-leading 17th game. (AP)
Adam Wainwright, who had allowed six runs total in July and the same in August, allowed six runs in the fifth inning to the Bucs. But no worries. Albert Pujols' three-run homer turned the tables, and the Cards headed for a rout. Ryan Ludwick homered twice among five hits.
