Brewers narrowly split doubleheader

The Milwaukee Brewers won one game in extra innings and lost one in the same fashion Monday, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in the first game and 3-2 in the second.


In game one of what was supposed to be two seven-inning contests, the two teams didn't even score until the eighth inning when a man was put on second base per MLB rules. After the Cardinals went up 1-0 in the top half, Ryan Braun tied the game on a double before Keston Hiura drove in Avisail Garcia on a sacrifice fly to take the first contest.


In game two, Jedd Gyorko homered to give the Brewers a short-lived lead in game two. The Cardinals would tie up the game with an RBI single by Tyler O'Neil in the fifth inning and a Brad Miller RBI single in the seventh. The Cardinals would once again take the lead in extras on a Paul DeJong RBI hit, but this time they held on to beat the Brewers and prevent the sweep.


The two teams still have three games remaining in this three-day series. The two teams will play a single matchup on Tuesday beginning at 6:40 p.m. before playing a twin-bill on Wednesday.
