Yesterday's Results

Cardinals 3, Brewers 2

The games have moved into must-win territory, but the results are still the same. The Brewers could not break through last night as the losing streak reached nine games. They had their chances last night, collecting nine hits and four walks. However, they were 0-for-9 with RISP, and left eleven runners on base. Wily Peralta did his best and put together a quality start, but a quality start isn't good enough when the offense continues to struggle.
