Yesterday's Results

Brewers 5, Cardinals 4

It didn't feel like a win yesterday, but the Brewers managed to spoil the Cardinals home opener and collect their first road win of the season. Matt Garza had a rough day, allowing six hits and five walks in his 5 2/3 innings. However, he kept the damage limited to two runs. Jean Segura didn't have a good day, committing two throwing errors, along with a third bad throw that allowed a runner to reach. Meanwhile, on offense, the Brewers first three runs all came on groundouts, with two getting tacked on in the seventh thanks to RBI hits from Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy. The Cardinals cut the Brewers lead to 5-4 heading into the eighth, but Jonathan Broxton and Francisco Rodriguez each pitched scoreless innings to secure the win.
