Cardinals Vs. Astros Final Score: St. Louis Earns 4-3 Victory

The St. Louis Cardinals knocked off the Houston Astros 4-3 at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday. The win gets St. Louis back over .500, pushing the team's record to 29-28. Houston falls to 24-32 with the loss.

St. Louis led wire-to-wire.

Left fielder Allen Craig and third baseman David Freese would also add RBIs before the first ended.

Following a third inning solo homer from Craig, the Astros ran off three straight runs but couldn't tie the score.

Starter Adam Wainwright earned the win, improving to 5-6 by allowing seven hits and three runs over 5.2 innings. Jason Motte nailed down the save, his 10th of the year.
