Milwaukee gets yet another home win courtesy of home runs from Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, and Corey Hart. Randy Wolf pitched 8 shutout innings.
The defense also turned a rare triple play. The game ended on Milwaukee’s fourth double play of the evening.
The Brewers have a poor defensive reputation. The data show them to be in line with the league average; tonight’s performance was somewhat above that.
The Cardinals found themselves on the wrong side of a Pirates outburst. They lost 6-2.
Milwaukee’s magic number moves to 35.
