Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina's throwing error combined with Michael Wacha's wild pitch to allow two unearned runs in the seventh inning, breaking a tie and helping Gio Gonzalez and the Washington Nationals beat St. Louis 3-1 Friday night. Wacha (2-1) gave up five hits and one earned run.

The Cardinals series in Washington continues Saturday, with the first pitch at 12:05 p.m. on NewsTalk 1070 KHMO.
