The Milwaukee Brewers did all their damage in a big second inning en route to a 6-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. Geoff Jenkins and Richie Sexson each knocked in a pair of runs in the win. The offense supported Kyle Petersen who pitched five solid innings in his first Major League appearance since 1999. Petersen allowed the two Cardinal runs on five hits to earn the win. Dustin Hermanson pitched very well with the exception of that second inning. All totaled, Hermanson pitched seven innings allowing the six runs on eight hits. He falls to 5-3 with the loss. J.D. Drew hit his 18th home run of the season in defeat.
