Cards' Wacha heating up, eyes sweep of Rockies

The St. Louis Cardinals are surging at the right time, and pitcher Michael Wacha is showing he belongs for the stretch run.

The Cardinals, after a 6-0 victory over the visiting Colorado Rockies on Saturday night, have won six of their last seven and increased their National League Central lead over the Chicago Cubs to 1 1/2 games. They have won the first three of a four-game weekend series against Colorado.

Wacha, back in the rotation, takes the mound Sunday to go for the sweep.
