Milwaukee (AP) — On Tuesday night, St. Louis, who held the division’s leading Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 and extended the playoff lead, were cardinals close to Jobani Galegos who had a fan of Pablo Reyes in the final.
The Cardinals have increased the edge of the second NL wildcard spot to four games in Cincinnati. San Diego has begun the day with a 41/2 difference between St. Louis and Philadelphia by four games.
Milwaukee, who secured the playoffs, lost three games in a row. Brewers, whose magic number clinched NL Central remained at 3, leads the Cardinals by 9½ games.
The Brewers have been 2-5 in the last seven games and have recorded a total of eight runs in five defeats.
Jake Woodford (3-3) and four rescuers joined in four batters as the Cardinals approached the longest consecutive win in franchise history, the 14 games set in 1935.
Avisail Garcia opened Milwaukee in 9th place with a single and Lorenzo Cain settled into a force out. Originally it dominated the double play, but the replay reversed the call.
After Luis Urías walked, Cain finished third in the flyout. Christian Yelich walked deliberately, and Cabrera defeated Reyes on his eleventh save.
St. Louis recorded the first run without hitting Brandon Woodruff (9-10) and added the eighth run on Tommy Edman’s RBI single.
Brewers scored once every eight innings from Luis Garcia, Kolten Wong doubled, and Willy Adames continued the sacrifice fly as the pinch hitter Daniel Vogelbach walked.
Woodford allowed two singles in five innings, hit five and walked one. Alex Reyes and Henesis Cabrera continued their hitless innings, respectively.
After one run, Woodruff allowed three single pairs in six innings, hit ten and walked two.
Edman first produced a Cardinals orchid. He led on a nine-pitch walk, stole second, walked third, and scored on Tyler O’Neill’s sacrifice fly.
The Cardinals were 2-0 in 8th place when the pinch hitter Lars Nootbar walked 1 out to take 2nd place and scored on Edman’s second hit.
Cardinals: RHP Jack Flaherty threw about 15 balls to his teammates in a simulation game, straining his right shoulder in a 10-day IL starting August 25th. “He looked like Jack, so I’ll look at how he recovers and evaluate what the next step is,” said manager Mike Shildt.
Brewers: After being hit by a pitching shoulder on a line drive, LHP Brett Anderson in IL will be active from September 2nd and will start the match against St. Louis on Wednesday. … Cain wasn’t the starting lineup for three games in a row. Cain’s crotch hurts from the match on Saturday after crashing into the wall with a sensational catch. Cain hit in the 7th inning and stayed in the center field.
OF Tyrone Taylor is back on the 10-day injured list. RHP Miguel Sanchez was selected as an option for Triple A Nashville.
Cardinals: RHP Miles Micolas (1-2, 4.50) will start the third game in the series on Wednesday. Mikolas allowed three hits in 52/3 scoreless innings on his last start for his first win since 2019.
Brewers: LHP Brett Anderson (4-8, 4.18) will leave Illinois for the first start since September 1.
