Cardinals Top Brewers

The Cardinals used a three-run seventh inning to pick up a 3-2 win over the Brewers at Busch Stadium. Matt Holliday belted a solo shot for the team's first score. Two batters later, A.J. Pierzynski and Oscar Taveras singled-in back-to-back runs to give them the lead. John Lackey picked up the win in his St. Louis debut by throwing seven innings of two-run ball. Trevor Rosenthal closed it out for his league-leading 34th save as the Cards won their fourth game of their last five. Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 with an RBI and Mark Reynolds went deep for Milwaukee, which has lost five of seven. Jeremy Jeffress took the loss after Matt Garza threw six shutout innings.
