ST. LOUIS (AP) — Rookie Shelby Miller allowed one hit in seven innings, a single by Norichika Aoki to open the game, and the St. Louis Cardinals had just enough to spoil Kyle Lohse’s first start as a visitor since 2007 in a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. David Freese had an RBI single at the end of a three-hit flurry to open the second and Yadier Molina hit his second homer in the seventh for the Cardinals, who have allowed one run during a three-game winning streak.

Lohse, a 16-game winner whom the Cardinals did not attempt to re-sign, allowed two runs in seven innings while throwing 82 pitches. Miller (2-0) had a career-best eight strikeouts in his third career start.
