The Redbirds lead the Brewers 2-0 in the ninth, but Jason Isringhausen served up a 2-run homer to Paul Bako, which tied the game. In the 11th inning, Milwaukee scored five runs, to win it 7-2. Isringhausen’s slip up prevented Bud Smith from getting his first win of the year. Smith went five innings allowing no runs. He got the no decision. With the loss the Cardinals lead in the NL Central dropped to a single game over the Reds, who visit St. Louis this weekend. Cincinati topped the Cubs 5-4 last night.
