ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals got just enough hitting to save Trevor Rosenthal. Matt Carpenter homered, doubled and drove in three runs and Adam Wainwright tied for the major league lead with his 15th win in a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres 7-6 on Sunday. "Our offence did a great job, put us all on their back," Wainwright said. The 24-year-old Rosenthal is among the major league leaders with 36 saves in 40 chances in his first season as closer. He walked the bases full with a strikeout in the ninth and Seth Maness gave up a two-run single to Abraham Almonte before earning his second save in two chances. "We needed to get him some help," manager Mike Matheny said. "We didnt feel like we were going to sit around and watch too much without giving him a break." Three walks was a career worst for Rosenthal, who has walked five his last two appearances along with three hits and three runs in 1 1-3 innings. The hard-throwing righty and his manager believe its a timing issue and not about fatigue. "Physically, everything feels pretty good," Rosenthal said. "I think its just going to be narrowing the sights a little bit, or maybe not trying to do too much." Rosenthal is among the league leaders with 57 appearances. "Weve worked him pretty hard and were going to be very careful about how we move forward," Matheny said. "Were not afraid to use the other guys in our bullpen to pick up the games when he cant. "But as far as his role, hes our closer." Jon Jays two-run single highlighted a four-run first inning when the Cardinals batted around against rookie Odrisamer Despaigne (3-4). Peter Bourjos and Tony Cruz each had an RBI single for St. Louis, which took three of four in the series. Despaigne needed 37 pitches to get out of the first. "He just couldnt finish off any hitters," manager Bud Black said. "He couldnt get any of his pitches where he needed to get them." Carpenters two-run double off Tim Stauffer in the sixth made it a three-run cushion for Wainwright (15-7), who joined the Reds Johnny Cueto at 15 wins. Milwaukees Wily Peralta was seeking his 15th later Sunday. Wainwright allowed three earned runs in seven innings with five strikeouts and one walk, overcoming a handful of rough patches. He hasnt felt locked in for a while. "Its been a grind for over a month now," Wainwright said. "Im about ready for it to end." Wainwright is 5-0 at home with a 1.55 ERA against the Padres, so this was one of his stiffer tests. "We did a nice job of laying off the breaking balls as the game went on," Black said. "We put together some better swings." Alexi Amarista and Yangvertis Solarte had an RBI apiece in the San Diego fifth. Jake Goebbert had an RBI triple and scored on second baseman Kolten Wongs wild relay as the Padres pulled within 5-4 in the sixth. First baseman Matt Adams made a nice defensive stop to rob Seth Smith of a game-tying hit for the second out in the ninth. TRAINERS ROOM Padres: 3B Solarte has started the last two games after missing a pair with a mild left oblique strain. Cardinals: OF Matt Holliday got a day off with a minor knee problem, plus has been scuffling at the plate, going 0 for 18 the previous five games. UP NEXT Padres: Ian Kennedy (9-10, 3.54) and San Diego open a three-game set against the Dodgers Kevin Correia (1-0, 1.50). Cardinals: Justin Masterson (6-7, 5.58) faces the Reds and Mike Leake (9-11, 3.59) on Monday. Masterson is coming off seven scoreless innings against the Marlins, the best of three starts since arriving at the trade deadline. STRONG STROKE Jay is 12 for 24 during a nine-game hitting streak and is batting .417 this month. Jay also was hit by a pitch four times in a span of five plate appearances on Friday and Saturday. "Hes doing a nice job of getting on base, whether hes a magnet or not," Matheny said. Cheap Air Jordan 4 Australia . Ryan Callahan trade talks caught a lot of people off guard.
