Brewers fall to St. LouisWisconsin Sports
The Cards are trying to gain some major ground in the National League Central Division during this week’s three-game series against the Brewers – and three more games against Milwaukee next week at Busch Stadium.
The Milwaukee Brewers would lose their first back-to-back games since July 24 if they fall to St. Louis Wednesday night at Miller Park.
The Cardinals edged the Brewers 2-1 Tuesday night. The Cards are trying to gain some major ground in the National League Central Division during this week’s three-game series against the Brewers – and three more games against Milwaukee next week at Busch Stadium.
The Brewers still lead the second-place Cardinals by nine and a half games in the Central. A lot of that margin could disappear quickly if the Cardinals stay on their current hot streak.
St. Louis has won four of its last five games overall. All-Star catcher Yadier Molina says there’s no way the team will back off.
Molina had two hits last night. The Cardinals won without getting a hit from their stars Albert Pujols, Lance Berkman and Matt Holliday, who went a combined 0 for 10.
The Brewers were just 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position. Back to back errors by Milwaukee ended up deciding Tuesday night’s contest.
Wednesday, left-hander Randy Wolf starts for the Crew against right-hander Jake Westbrook. If the Brewers lose, they’ll drop their first home series since July 6, when Arizona took two of -three.
A Milwaukee victory would give the Brewers a new team record for wins in a single month - 22.
