That bit of misfortune didn’t cost Milwaukee the win, however, as St. Louis closer Greg Holland walked four batters in the top of the 10th to gift the Brewers a 5-4 victory.
Matt Albers, filling in for the injured Corey Knebel, pitched both the ninth and 10th innings for Milwaukee, earning the win.
Offensively for Milwaukee, Eric Sogard went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored, and Travis Shaw scored three runs and collected two hits.
The Brewers and Cardinals rematch for the second game of a three game set on Tuesday night in St. Louis. Brent Super is the starter for Milwaukee and Carlos Martinez takes the hill for the Cardinals. First pitch is set for 7:15 PM CT.
