ST. LOUIS -- Playing the last-place Atlanta Braves seemed to be the perfect time for the St. Louis Cardinals to finally assert some home-field advantage.Instead, with ace Adam Wainwright pitching, they were only handed more heartache.Mike Foltynewicz worked six strong innings, Nick Markakis and Erick Aybar had two RBI apiece and the Braves kept the Cardinals down at home with a 6-3 victory on Sunday.We go through our ups and we go through our downs and were very consistently inconsistent, Brandon Moss said. Thats all there is to it.The Cardinals are 26-32 at home after going 55-26 last season, but have been good on the road at 32-21. They were 6-4 on the previous homestand, including a four-game sweep of the Padres, but have dropped four of their last five home series.This is the first time weve had to hear about it in a while, manager Mike Matheny said. I still say were going to win our fair share at home, but I think its one of those things where you just cant describe, you cant explain.Matt Kemp added two hits and an RBI to help the Braves take two of three, outscoring the Cardinals 19-8 over the last two games. Atlanta has the worst record in the majors at 41-70, but has won seven of its last 11 overall.Wainwright (9-6) had a rare off day against Atlanta, allowing three runs in the first and second. He entered 8-2 with a 2.95 ERA against the Braves, who drafted him in the first round in 2000 and traded him to St. Louis in a 2003 deal for J.D. Drew.Ive never had an inning where I threw 39 pitches that I commanded the ball OK, Wainwright said. It was a frustrating game, no doubt.Braves interim manager Brian Snitker thought Wainwright was going to retire the side in order in the first.Next thing you know he walks Freddie (Freeman) and guys start grinding out at-bats, Snitker said. Its what weve been doing.Moss had a sacrifice fly and a double, and Yadier Molina had three hits and an RBI for St. Louis.Foltynewicz (5-5) gave up a run and six hits. In his previous three outings, he allowed 14 earned runs over 16 1/3 innings.He was careful to give the Cardinals a nod.This is a great team, the right-hander said, even though theyre not doing so hot right now.Jim Johnson earned his eighth save.Braves third baseman Adonis Garcia made an outstanding stab down the line to turn a double play on Jhonny Peralta in the sixth.After needing 61 pitches to get through the first two innings, Wainwright finished strong with four scoreless frames. But the Cardinals stranded five runners over the first two.It was a weird game, man, Wainwright said. One thing I know is I felt great and Ill be ready next time.STILL STREAKINGAtlanta CF Ender Inciarte singled and scored in the second and has an 18-game hitting streak, matching his career best set in 2014. Aybar had a two-run triple in the second and has hit in 12 straight.ROSTER UTILIZATIONBraves RHP Madison Younginer was put straight to work after his contract was purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett and he had a rough debut, allowing two runs while getting two outs. Atlanta claimed RHP Chaz Roe off waivers from the Orioles and designated OF-INF Brandon Snyder for assignment.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: 2B Matt Carpenter was not in the lineup a day after getting removed with apparent side muscle difficulties. He was activated off the DL on Friday after missing 24 games with a strained right oblique.UP NEXTBraves: Rob Whalen (1-0, 7.20 ERA) makes his second career start on Monday, working the opener of a four-game series at Milwaukee.Cardinals: Michael Wacha (7-7, 4.35) has won his last five decisions heading into the opener of a three-game series against the Reds.

LOS ANGELES -- The champagne is chilling as the Los Angeles Dodgers are close to icing another National League West title.Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (11-3, 1.73 ERA) takes the mound Saturday and opposes Colorado Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis (13-7, 4.79) in the third contest of the four-game series at Dodger Stadium.A win by the Dodgers and a loss by the San Francisco Giants, who are in San Diego, allows Los Angeles to claim a club-record fourth straight NL West championship.Although Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who is in his first season, is preaching caution, he realizes one of the goals for his club is near.We want to clinch as fast as possible, Roberts said. Its as simple as that.The Dodgers are close to another postseason appearance despite another injury rearing its ugly head in their starting rotation. Left-hander Scott Kazmir returned to the mound Friday night after a one-month absence with neck issues but lasted only an inning after suffering right intercostal spasms, which affects the muscles between the ribs.Kazmirs injury is just the lastest that has plagued the teams starters, including ones to Brett Anderson, Brandon McCarthy, Rich Hill, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Kershaw.Kershaw, though, has been solid since his return from a herniated disk last month. In his last appearance against the Giants, he allowed an unearned run on three hits in six innings but did not factor into the decision in the Dodgers 2-1 victory. Kershaw struck out seven and walked one.At homme, Kershaw has been almost unbeatable.dddddddddddd In nine starts this season, Kershaw is 7-1 with a 1.19 ERA and has limited the opposition to a .154 batting average. Kershaw has struck out 80 batters against four walks, while posting a 0.59 WHIP.Kershaw is 17-5 with a 3.20 ERA in 31 career starts against the Rockies. He has limited the Rockies to a .220 average, while striking out 217 against 67 walks.Kershaw last faced the Rockies on Sept. 14, 2015, allowing one run on three hits in seven innings and recording the win in the Dodgers 4-1 victory. Kershaw struck out five and issued two walks on 105 pitches.Bettis is enjoying one of his best seasons, earning career highs in wins, starts (30) and innings (174 2/3). Bettis is 6-5 with a 4.84 ERA in 17 road starts this season.He faces the Dodgers for the second time this season. On July 2, Bettis allowed four runs on six hits in a 6-1 Dodgers victory.Bettis has a 0-1 mark with a 4.91 ERA in seven games (four starts) against Los Angeles.Bettis works against a team intent on punching its ticket to the postseason. Robert is confident the Dodgers offense will find a way to prevail.I do like this lineup, Roberts said. One through eight were pretty good and also with the guys we have the bench just adds to our depth. Weve got guys who can come off the bench and hit, which makes us a dangerous club. ' ' '
