Until now, the Brewers had not swept a three-game series from Saint Louis at home since Milwaukee was in the American League and the two were playing their first Inter-league series ever in June of 1997.

The Brewers completed the identical feat yesterday afternoon with a 4-0 win over the Cardinals at Miller Park.

Chris Capuano lasted just three innings after he bruised his right calf on a hard grounder by Aaron Miles.

The left-hander is expected to make his next start on Monday.

Carlos Villanueva gave up two hits over the next four innings to get the win. He's 2-0.

The Cards only had five singles all day three by Albert Pujols, who extended his hitting streak to 11 games.

Milwaukee only had four hits. J.J. Hardy went 1-3 to extend his career-high hitting streak to 13.

Prince Fielder singled home a pair. Bill Hall stole home on a double-steal and he also doubled.

Anthony Reyes lost his seventh straight dating back to last year. He's 0-5 this season.

The Brewers have won four in a row and four of five from the Cards this season. Milwaukee now leads the National League Central by five games over Cincinnati - the biggest division lead in the Majors.

They still have baseball's best record at 18-9. The Brewers will open a home series against Pittsburgh Thursday night. Right-hander Dave Bush will face Pirates' lefty Tom Gorzelanny.
