A near-flawless Adam Wainwright and lethal two-out hitting powered the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series at Busch Stadium.

Wainwright (7-2) tossed the first one-hitter of his career, registering nine strikeouts and facing only one batter over the minimum. Paul Goldschmidt's two-out double in the fourth inning was the right-hander's lone blemish.

Matt Adams and Jhonny Peralta each homered for St. Louis, which scored all its runs with two outs against Arizona starter Bronson Arroyo (4-3).
