The third time was the charm for the Milwaukee Brewers today as they outscored the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 in ten innings to finish the series at Busch Stadium.
The Brewers trailed by three runs after St. Louis scored two runs in the third inning and one in the fourth. Ryan Braun connected for a two-run home run at the top of the eighth inning to break the Crew’s team record 32-inning scoreless streak and get Milwaukee within one run of the home team.
Yuniesky Betancourt hit an RBI double in the ninth to tie the game at three and take the game into ten innings. Jonathon Lucroy slammed home the winning run with just one out at the top of the tenth and Milwaukee closer Burke Badenhop got his third career save cutting the Cardinals short of scoring in the tenth inning.
The Brewers (3-8) are heading back to Milwaukee and will kick off a three-game series against the Giants on Tuesday night.
