      Wainwright could go in ASG if needed

      St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright could pitch in Tuesday's All-Star game despite going seven innings in Saturday's win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

      Manager Mike Matheny, who will lead the National League, said the right-hander told him before Sunday's game against Milwaukee that he felt good and could go at the All-Star game at Target Field.

      Wainwright is 12-4 with a 1.83 ERA. Tuesday would be his scheduled day to throw in between starts. Matheny said Wainwright hasn't done much lobbying to pitch.

      Matheny is making his first appearance as an All-Star manager. He said he expects his players to compete like their "postseason is on the line."

      The Cardinals were trying to finish a three-game sweep Sunday in Milwaukee.
