CHICAGO (AP) - Adam Wainwright pitched seven scoreless innings to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory and a series win over the Chicago Cubs yesterday. The Cardinals won two of the three games at Wrigley Field in the weekend set. The Cubs have not won a home series since taking two of three from the Miami Marlins last month.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Martina Hingis led Washington to beat Olga Govortsova 5-2 in singles in the Kastles' 25-13 victory over the Springfield Lasers. It's Washington's fourth straight World TeamTennis title and fifth in six years. The Kastles tied the record for consecutive titles set by Sacramento in 2000.

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Joe Torre has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Torre excelled as a player but became something special in the Yankees dugout. He had mediocre stints managing the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals before he was hired by the Yankees prior to the 1996 season. The Yankees won 10 division titles, six AL pennants, and four World Series under him.
