Three Homers Put Brewers Past Cardinals

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers rely again on the long ball, as they beat St. Louis 7-5 at home on Thursday night. Travis Shaw hit a three run blast, and Eric Thames and Jett Bandy each had two run shots. It was the third straight game in which Shaw and Bandy went yard, giving Milwaukee a Major League leading 32 home runs this season — at least one blast in each of the Crew’s last 12 contests. Zach Davies got the win despite giving up four runs in five and one third innings, improving to 1-2, and Jacob Barnes picked up his first save as Carlos Martinez took the loss for Saint Louis — which outhit Milwaukee 11-9 as Jedd Gyorko fell one triple short of the cycle and Matt Carpenter also homered. The Cardinals became the third National League team to lose ten games this season, and Game Two of their series with the Brewers is tonight at Miller Park.
