Brewers Outlast Cardinals

The Brewers tied it with a three-run seventh and beat the Cardinals 5-3 in 12 innings last night at Busch Stadium. Matt Holliday was 3-for-6 with a solo homer and two RBI while Allen Craig also went deep. Seth Maness took the loss in relief of Michael Wacha, who turned in a quality start.

The Cardinals continue their three-game series with the Brewers tonight at Busch Stadium. Lance Lynn puts his 4-and-1 record on the line for the Redbirds while Milwaukee counters with Kyle Lohse, who is also 4-and-1. First pitch is set for 7:15.
