Woody Williams worked seven innings, allowing three hits and earned his 17th win, as the Cardinals took a 5-1 decision from the Brewers. After Eduardo Perez drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, Mike Matheny drove in two with a homer in the second. Scott Rolen had a pair of RBI’s with a double in the third to make the score 5-1. Albert Pujols increased his major league-leading batting average to .365 by going 2-3. The Cardinals have dominated the Brewers this season—they’ve won 12 of 15 games against Milwaukee in 2003. The win keeps the Cardinals in playoff contention, but not by much. They play four more games and trail by three-and-a-half. The Cubs moved into first in the N.L. Central, a game ahead of the Astros.
