U.S. Olympic hero Ben Sheets pitched a complete game five-hitter for his first Major League shutout, leading the Milwaukee Brewers past the St. Louis Cardinals 7-0 on Tuesday. Sheets allowed just one walk while striking out three in improving his record to 5-4 on the season. Mike Matthews allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings of work to suffer his first loss of the season in three decisions. The loss, coupled with the Chicago Cubs 9th straight win, drops the Cards a game behind Chicago in the National League Central standings.
