And somehow, Manny Parra owns the Cardinals.

Despite posting an ERA over 7 against the rest of baseball, Manny Parra has pitched well against the Cardinals in each of his four outings against them, posting a 2.42 ERA in 26 innings, including allowing just two earned runs in 6.1 innings today en route to his tenth victory.

The Brewer bullpen made it interesting in the seventh, as Parra was lifted with one out and a runner on and David Weathers loaded the bases with a hit and a walk, but Mitch Stetter struck out Khalil Greene and Claudio Vargas got Albert Pujols to ground out to end the inning. Pujols came up again with two outs and a runner on in the ninth, and Trevor Hoffman struck him out to end the game.

Casey McGehee hit his second home run of the series and his thirteenth of the season in the sixth inning, giving the Brewers the lead. He was the MVP of all three games in the series. Ryan Braun also went 2-for-4 and was the only Brewer to record a multi-hit game.
