MILWAUKEE (AP) — Kyle Lohse beat the Cardinals for the first time this season and Sean Halton knocked in a career-high three runs to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat St. Louis 6-3 Tuesday night.
Lohse beat the Cardinals in his fourth try this season and improved to 3-5 in nine outings overall against his former team.
Lohse left after six innings with the Brewers leading 6-3. He struck out four, walked two and allowed six hits and three runs, two coming on Yadier Molina’s two-run homer in the fourth. Molina doubled and scored in the second on Matt Adams’ single.
After John Axford and Brandon Kintzler each pitched a scoreless inning, and Jim Henderson pitched the ninth for his 19th save in 22 chances.
Lance Lynn got roughed up in the Brewers’ five-run fourth, highlighted by Halton’s two-run single with the bases loaded.
