Brewers Best Cardinals In Ten

Jeff Bianchi's two-out, two-run single in the 10th inning led the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The big hit came after the Cards had loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth but could not push across the winning run. Jim Henderson set the Cardinals down in order in the bottom of the 10th to pick up his eighth save of the season. Jean Segura and Ryan Braun each had three hits and two ruins batted in for the Brewers. John Axford pitched one-and-a-third innings for his first win of the season. Matt Carpenter drove in two while Jon Jay and Pete Kozma each had an RBI for the Cardinals, who had won four of five. Joe Kelly was saddled with the loss to drop to 0-and-2.

The St. Louis Cardinals are exercising the 2015 option on pitcher John Lackey. The 36-year-old right-hander will earn the league minimum 500-thousand-dollars after making 15.25-million each of the last three seasons. Lackey was acquired from Boston at the trade deadline and his contract had a clause allowing for a league-minimum option after missing the entire 2012 season due to elbow surgery.
