Tony LaRussa called it a Hall of Fame night for the Cardinals 3rd baseman. Flashing a brillant glove and getting four hits on the night including a two run homer in the first to give Joel Pineiro a 3-0 lead before he had to throw a pitch, Scott Rolen led the attack as the Cardinals pounded the Brewers 8-3.
The Cardinals have beaten the Brewers five straight and pulled to within 3 1/2 games of the division leader. In fact, the Red Birds have made up a lot of ground quickly, gaining 4 1/2 games on Milwaukee in the last ten days.
Another solid starting pitching performance. Joel Pineiro went seven innings, giving up five hits and two earned runs. The Brewers go for the sweep this afternoon.
