ST. LOUIS (AP) - Adam Wainwright earned his 19th victory in a tuneup for the NL division series opener and Matt Holliday homered again as the St. Louis Cardinals showed no letup after clinching the NL Central, beating the Chicago Cubs 6-2 on Saturday.

Holliday homered for the second straight day and Yadier Molina drove in two runs for St. Louis (96-65), which entered the day tied with Atlanta for the NL lead in wins. The Cardinals have won five in a row.

Wainwright (19-9) allowed two hits in shutout 5 1-3 innings and tied for the league lead in victories with Washington's Jordan Zimmermann, who lost his last scheduled start Wednesday in St. Louis.

Seth Maness earned his first career save by getting Darwin Barney on a double-play ball.

Edwin Jackson (8-18) leads the majors in losses.
