Cardinals use Wainwright to beat Red Sox 5-2
Jhonny Peralta's two-run double keyed a three-run first off Brandon Workman and Wong had his first multihomer game. The Cardinals took two of three from their stripped-down opponents, who beat them in the World Series last fall but are in last place in the AL East.
Wainwright needed 66 pitches to slog through the first three innings after the start was delayed by rain for more than an hour for the second straight night.
