A five-run fourth inning lifts Milwaukee over St. Louis
The Milwaukee Brewers scored five runs in the fourth inning last night to beat the Saint Louis Cardinals 6-to-3 at Miller Park. The Brewers ended a five-game home losing streak to the Redbirds. And the Crew again jumped out of last place in the National League Central, leading the Chicago Cubs by a half-game. All 10 Brewer hits were singles. Rookie Sean Halton got the start at first base in place of Juan Francisco, who struck out eight straight times in his previous two contests.
