White Sox Vs. Cardinals Final Score: St. Louis Falls 6-1 In Series Opener

The St. Louis Cardinals dropped back down to .500 after falling 6-1 in the series opener against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. The win moves Chicago to 34-27, while St. Louis, which has now lost three of its last four games, falls to 31-31.

Chicago scored four runs in the top of the eighth inning to make a one-run game 6-1. Left fielder Adam Dunn and catcher A.J. Pierzynski would each hit home runs in the inning for the White Sox.

The Cards were mostly lifeless offensively, scoring their lone run in the sixth inning when first baseman Allen Craig singled to center to score Matt Holliday.

St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright allowed only five hits and two earned runs while striking out seven over seven innings, but the 30-year old righty goes down as the hard-luck loser. Wainwright's overall record falls to 5-7 with the loss.
