Matt Carpenter singled in two runs in the third to help back Wainwright (14-7), who was in command and allowed just five hits and one walk after going 0-2 in his previous four starts. Junior Lake drove in the Cubs' only run with a double in the sixth.
Wainwright hadn't won since July 21 at home against San Diego and had allowed 14 runs in 28 innings during the span. On Sunday, he faced only one batter over the minimum through the first five innings and only 26 through seven innings.
