Hey, look at that! Dave Bush actually had a pretty good start tonight. Bushy allowed the Cardinals only one run over six innings on a solo home run by Albert Pujols. Bush was followed by, who else, Kameron Loe.  Low was able to pitch a clean seventh inning, but wasn't as lucky in the eighth. He allowed two of the first three batters to reach, so John Axford had to be called in for another multi-inning save. The Ax allowed one of Loe's baserunners to score in the eighth on a wild pitch, but was able to retire Matt Holliday on a groundout to end the threat. He retired the side in order in the ninth for his 18th save.

Most of the offense today came from Casey McGehee, who had three hits including a two-run homer. All three of the Brewers runs were unearned, thanks to an error by Cardinals 3B, and former Brewer, Felipe Lopez.
