Carpenter, Holliday homer as Cardinals beat Cubs 4-3

Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday homered to back Adam Wainwright, and 
the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Tuesday night.
The Cardinals won their second straight game after going 0-5 on their first 
winless homestand of at least two series since 1983. 
Carpenter and Holliday connected against Jason Hammel (7-3) in a three-run 
third inning that made it 4-1. Wainwright (6-4) pitched into the seventh and 
improved to 10-1 in 21 games - 16 starts - at Wrigley Field.
The Cardinals put themselves in position to sweep their first trip to Chicago 
since last year's NL Division Series, though it won't be easy with the major 
league-leading Cubs sending reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta 
to the mound.
Chris Coghlan scored two runs for the Cubs, whose longest losing streak is 
three games. Chicago hit into three double plays.
Wainwright allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings.
