The Brewers fell to the Cardinals for the third time in four tries on Sunday 6-4. Jimmy Nelson struggled with control as he scattered six walks throughout his outing. Manny Pina hit his first home run of the season and Ryan Braun doubled in Eric Thames in early scoring.
Milwaukee had a chance to steal one from the Cardinals in the bottom of the ninth inning. Eric Thames struck out and Ryan Braun popped out as the tying runs were on base.
