The Brewers couldn’t get a big enough lead yesterday and fell to the Cardinals again 7-6 at Miller Park.
When Milwaukee made a big play, St. Louis answered. Jean Segura smacked a two-run home run in the first, the Cardinals’ Jon Jay answered with a three-run homer in the second inning. In the sixth inning Jonathan Lucroy sent two home on a single, followed by a seventh inning two-run shot from St. Louis’ Daniel Descalso. Milwaukee managed to tie it up at 6 in the eighth but Jay hit an RBI single in the ninth to cap off the game.
The Brewers need a win today to avoid a four-game St. Louis sweep. The game starts at 1:10.
