ST. Custom England Soccer Jersey . LOUIS -- Adam Wainwright bolted out of the dugout before the bottom of the ninth inning. No way was the St. Louis Cardinals ace coming out of this one. Wainwright persuaded manager Mike Matheny, a former four-time Gold Glove catcher who handled the right-handers warmup tosses before the ninth, to finish the game. Then he put the finishing touch on his NL-leading 15th win and fifth complete game for a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. "Hes our horse," Matheny said. "Those are the kind of statements your ace loves to make. That was his game." Wainwright joked that the manager was out there to "size me up a little bit," and Matheny said the pitches had plenty of heat. "I like to do that, let them know that Im not tired and ready to battle for those last three outs," said Wainwright who had a key sacrifice fly. "Its always good to do that and I feel like our team needed it." Matt Hollidays 432-foot home run off Kris Medlen (10-12) snapped a sixth-inning tie for St. Louis, which took the first two games of a four-game set against the NL East leaders. Having already thrown 101 pitches, Wainwright was allowed to bat with the one out and the bases loaded in the seventh inning and hit a long sacrifice fly off Scott Downs for his third RBI of the season to make it 3-1. He then retired the side in order in the eighth and worked around a one-hit single to Chris Johnson in the ninth on a night when the Cardinals didnt have their closer. Edward Mujica was unavailable for the second straight game with back and neck pain that he believed was caused by working two innings three straight times. He felt much better after visiting a chiropractor, played catch before the game and said hed be ready Saturday. "I feel good but I didnt want to force it today," Mujica said. "Im much better than two days ago." Medlen singled to lead off the sixth and scored on Freddie Freemans second hit of the game and retired 12 in a row at one point. But he allowed Hollidays 17th homer on a liner deep into the left field stands. Hes lost his last two times out, including a relief appearance in a 15-inning game, and wasnt pleased about getting taken out after 78 pitches. "I thought I was cruising pretty good," Medlen said. "I hadnt had to battle yet but I wasnt given the opportunity, so I guess Im voicing the fact that I didnt appreciate that." The Cardinals lost three in a row at Atlanta to start a seven-game losing streak in late July that knocked them out of the Central lead and entered the night a game behind Pittsburgh. Wainwright (15-7) took one of the losses in that series, but the Brunswick, Ga., native is 7-2 against the Braves. Wainwright allowed a run on six hits with no walks and nine strikeouts, passing injured teammate Chris Carpenter for third on the franchise career list and putting him just six behind Dizzy Dean for second, and he has 16 career complete games. Hes worked seven or more innings seven straight starts and retired 10 in a row at one point. Yadier Molina had three hits with a pair of doubles to raise his NL-leading average to .337, five points ahead of the Johnson, who had a pair of singles. Molina doubled and Jon Jay singled to open the seventh and chase Medlen. Downs got a brief reprieve earlier in the inning when a wild pitch ricocheted back to catcher Brian McCann. The Braves Justin Upton was ejected in the sixth for arguing with home plate umpire Paul Nauert after a groundout. He believed hed been tossed because hed cursed himself leaving the box and "heard something I didnt say." "To be honest, if I cant get frustrated with myself and say what I want to myself, then its really sad," Upton said. "I have no clue what he heard and its just sad." NOTES: Braves SS Andrelton Simmons made an outstanding sliding catch on Kolten Wongs foul popup in the second. ... B.J. Upton snapped an 0-for-25 slump with a single in the second. ... Wainwright tied his career best for complete games in a season, also throwing five in 2010. He threw a season-high 128 pitches, second most in his career. ... Molina is batting .419 (13 for 31) with seven doubles in seven games since coming off the 15-day disabled list from a knee injury. The Cardinals are 6-1 in that stretch. ... Freeman is 12 for 27 (.444) during a six-game hitting streak. John Stones Jersey .

Oduro took a ball from Jairo Arrieta on the right side of the box in the 15th minute and fired into the far corner for his team-best 11th goal. The Fire (11-12-6) went down a man in the 29th minute when Bakary Soumare was ejected for his challenge of Arrieta just outside the penalty area. Arrieta was tackled by goalkeeper Sean Johnson in the 70th minute and Higuain converted from the spot. Bernardo Anor made it 3-0 in the 76th as the Crew (11-14-5) won their second straight. "We hit the post. We hit the crossbar. We had opportunities," Fire midfielder Jeff Larentowicz said. &quuot;Overall its just not good enough. Fraser Forster Jersey. " The Crew have won three of four under interim coach Brian Bliss and are eighth with 38 points in the Eastern Conference, but are only two points behind New England for the fifth and final playoff spot. "The change in attitude is that we know we can still make the playoffs," Oduro said. Chicago dropped from fifth into a tie for sixth with Philadelphia at 39 points. The Crew have four matches left, while Chicago, New England and Philadelphia have five. Oduro said getting back into the playoff hunt was more important than scoring against the club that traded him in February. "It felt good but its not our main focus," he said. "Our main focus is getting three points. That (goal) was icing on the cake." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '
