CLEVELAND (AP) — Adam Wainwright won in his first appearance at Progressive Field, Paul DeJong hit a go-ahead homer and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2.
DeJong’s two-out, two-run drive in the seventh inning put St. Louis ahead 3-2. Harrison Bader homered, doubled twice and stole a base as the Cardinals moved back over .500 at 51-50.
Wainwright went seven innings and earned his 175th career victory. This was the 33rd stadium he’s pitched in during regular-season play. José Ramírez homered for Cleveland, which has lost 16 of 23.
Indians manager Terry Francona returned to the dugout after missing the previous two games with a head cold.
