Stavinoha lifts Cardinals over Brewers 3-2

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Nick Stavinoha had two RBIs and scored the go-ahead run to lead St. Louis to a 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, pushing the Cardinals back into first in the NL Central.

St. Louis has won 7 of its last nine and hasn't allowed more than three runs in any game in the stretch.

Cardinals starter Todd Wellemeyer (5-4) and the bullpen showcased the best team ERA in the majors (3.58) by silencing the struggling Brewers, who struck out 27 times in the 3-game series and have lost 5 of 6 to drop out of first for the first time in two weeks.
