ST. LOUIS (AP) - Matt Carpenter drove in three runs, leading Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals over the Chicago Cubs 6-4 Sunday.

The Cardinals took two of three from the Cubs. Chicago has lost three of four overall.

Carpenter hit a two-run single in the second inning and added a sacrifice fly in the fourth that put St. Louis ahead to stay at 4-3.

Wacha (2-0) allowed three runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. He gave up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo on his 16th pitch of the game.

Wacha struck out eight and walked one.

Trevor Rosenthal gave up a run in the ninth, but retired Luis Valbuena and Emilio Bonifacio with the trying runs on base to pick up his fourth save in as many opportunities.

Edwin Jackson (0-1) allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings.
