The Milwaukee Brewers played two of their final four regular-season games in a doubleheader against the Cardinals. After losing the first game of the five-game series, it was essential that the Brewers at least split the doubleheader to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Brewers were victorious in the first game 3-0. Brent Suter pitched a gem that earned him the win. Suter struck out four batters and only gave up two hits and zero runs in four innings of work. The offense started early with an Eric Sogard single in the second to bring home Daniel Vogelbach. Orlando Arcia would add on to the lead with an RBI fielder’s choice that brought in Keston Hiura. Yelich would add the final run of the game with a solo home run in the third.
The Brewers would end up dropping the second game 9-1. The Cardinals jumped out early when Matt Carpenter drove in Tommy Edman with a single in the first. The Cardinals would add two more runs in the second and exploded for six runs in the fifth. Milwaukee’s only run came in the sixth with a solo home run by Orlando Arcia. Josh Lindblom received the loss for the Brewers as he gave up three runs in 2 ? innings. The Brewers only recorded two hits as a team.
Game four of the series starts at 6:07 p.m. on Saturday.
