Cardinals Get By Brewers

Matt Holliday clubbed a two-run homer as the Cardinals doubled up the Brewers 4-2 in the opener of a three-game series at Busch Stadium. Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams both plated a run and scored a run for the Redbirds, who have won four in-a-row and remain one game ahead of the Pirates for first place in the NL Central. Shelby Miller tossed six-and-two-thirds scoreless innings as he improved to 13-and-9.
