Solo homers by Chrisitan Yelich and Travis Shaw were the high points for the Milwaukee Brewers in Saturday’s game in St. Louis. But an error plagued third inning allowed the Cardinals to score four unearned runs. St. Louis tacked on two more runs in the sixth inning and one in the eighth inning to put it away 7-2. The loss puts the Brewers 4 1/2 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central Division. The third straight loss also put Milwaukee out of contention for a wild card post season slot. Brewers manager Craig Counsell watched most of Saturday’s game from the clubhouse after he was ejected in the first inning.
