Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Adam Wainwright helped himself by doubling in two runs, and former D-back Troy Glaus hit one of St. Louis' three homers Tuesday night in an 8-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Yadier Molina and Felipe Lopez also connected to give Wainwright an early 5-0 lead. That made it seven home runs in two games for the Cardinals against the Diamondbacks.

Arizona's NL West lead was sliced to 1 1/2 games over the second-place Los Angeles Dodgers.
