It looked like the Cardinals were on their way to their first two game losing streak of the season as Milwaukee had a 4-3 lead and Trevor Hoffman on the mound in the top of the ninth. But, pinch hitter Nick Stavinoha had other ideas as he hits a two run home run and St. Louis came back to beat the Brewers 5-4.
The Cardinals would get on the board first, thanks to a sacrifice fly from David Freese in the second. That would score Matt Holliday to give the Redbirds the 1-0 lead.
The Brewers would then score four runs over the next three innings of Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse. Lohse would throw six innings, giving up those runs on six hits.
The struggling Cardinal bullpen put in a good performance shutting out Milwaukee for three innings. Blake Hawksworth and Dennys Reyes each threw one inning. Ryan Franklin would come into the game in the ninth and get his second save of the season.
The battle of the beer makers continues this afternoon as Jamie Garcia makes his first start for the Cardinals against the Brewers Yovani Gallardo. Game time is 2:10 this afternoon.
