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.

Cardinals prospects Randal Grichuk and Greg Garcia made their MLB debuts last night. Grichuk came on as a pinch hitter in the ninth and finished 0-for-2 at the dish. He played in right and center field. Garcia pinch hit in the seventh and drew a walk.

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
