Braves sweep Cardinals 6-0 and 2-0 as Miller stops skid
ATLANTA (AP) - Matt Wisler pitched four-hit ball over 8 2/3 innings, and the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis 2-0 Sunday for a doubleheader sweep that sent Cardinals' batters to the playoffs with a 27-inning scoreless streak.
St. Louis was held to seven hits in the doubleheader, which included a 6-0 loss to Shelby Miller in the first game that ended Miller's 24-start winless streak. The Braves won 4-0 Friday.
Wisler (8-8) won each of his last three starts, allowing a combined three runs.
Pinch-hitter Brandon Moss doubled with one out in the ninth to become the Cardinals' first runner in scoring position off Wisler. Jon Jay hit a groundout to first, Tommy Pham walked and Edwin Jackson struck out Randal Grichuk to end the game.
St. Louis, which won its third straight NL Central title, opens the Division Series at home Friday against the Chicago Cubs or Pittsburgh.
