After keeping the Cardinals off the board for four innings, the Cardinals scored six in the fifth off of Cravy to account for all of the runs in the game. Meanwhile, the Brewers managed only six hits in the game, three of those coming from Shane Peterson.

Cardinals 3, Brewers 0

As bad as it was on Friday night, the offense got worse on Saturday. The Brewers managed only two hits and five walks against the Cardinals pitching staff. The Cardinals scored early with a leadoff home run, though were held to three runs by Brewers starter Wily Peralta.

Brewers 5, Cardinals 4

The Brewers managed to get to Cardinals starter John Lackey early, scoring three runs on two home runs in the third inning to take a 3-0 lead. Meanwhile, Jimmy Nelson held the Cardinals scoreless for five innings before allowing a run in the sixth. He came back out for the seventh and allowed a three-run home run to Matt Carpenter, giving the Cardinals the lead. However, Khris Davis responded with a two-run home run in the eighth to save the Brewers are salvage a game in the series.
