Adam Wainwright's ankle injury put a damper on Mitch Harris' major league debut for St. Louis and took most of the luster off the Cardinals' 5-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. Wainwright was helped from the field by a trainer after injuring his left ankle while stumbling out of the batter's box on his popup to first leading off the fifth inning. ''It's something in the back of my ankle so we'll see what it is on Monday,'' said Wainwright, who was wearing a walking boot after the game. ''Everything right now is just all speculation.'' Wainwright will be re-evaluated when the Cardinals return to St. Louis.
