Cards Top Brewers

Jon Jay hit a two-run homer and Carlos Beltran added a solo shot as the Cardinals picked up an 8-5 win over the Brewers last night at Miller Park. Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter each singled in a run in the eighth before David Freese doubled in two. Michael Wacha got the win in relief for St. Louis despite allowing three runs in one inning while Edward Mujica notched his 32nd save. The Cards have won three straight and are a half-game back of the Pirates in the NL Central.
