Albert Pujols went 4 for 4 with two home runs, including a grand slam, as the St. Louis Cardinals earned an 8-4 win Thursday to complete a three-game sweep of Milwaukee Brewers.
Despite the sweep, St. Louis still trails Milwaukee by 7 1/2 games in the National League Central Division.
Matt Holliday hit the 200th homer of his career and Rafael Furcal added a solo shot for the Cardinals, who have won four straight and six of seven.
Milwaukee starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo gave up a homer to Rafael Furcal leading off the game and another to Pujols two batters later. Gallardo now has a 15-9 record and 3.68 earned run average on the season.
The Brewers will have another three-game series with the Cardinals next week at St. Louis.
