The Cardinals were able to salvage one game in Milwaukee by beating the Brewers 5-2 on Sunday. St. Louis, which leads the major leagues with 37 homers, hit three long-balls to avoid a sweep. Albert Pujols and Jim Edmonds got the fireworks going early by hitting back-to-back homers in the first inning. It stayed 2-0 until the eighth inning when Ray Lankford doubled in Jeff Suppan to make it 3-0. Suppan lasted 7 and 2/3’s innings allowing one run off three hits and two walks—he’s 2-2. Reggie Sanders hit the Cardinals final homer in the ninth inning. Jason Isringhausen worked around two hits to get the Cardinals out of the game. St. Louis went 3-3 on it’s six-game National League Central road trip. They’re off today and face the Phillies at Busch Stadium on Tuesday.
