Cardinals Beat Brewers to Avoid Sweep

Albert Pujols went 4-for-4 with a homer Thursday as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Brewers 5-2 to salvage the series finale.

St. Louis moved back within four games of the NL Central-leading Brewers, who shot themselves in the foot by hitting into four double plays.

Chris Carpenter (8-8) gave up 10 hits in eight innings, and Fernando Salas got his 22nd save in 25 chances with a perfect ninth.

Pujols took extra batting practice before the game and it paid off. He hit a first-inning solo homer, his 28th, just over the wall in center, had a run-scoring single in the fifth and added two more singles.

Yovani Gallardo (13-8) lasted just five innings for Milwaukee, which finished its road trip 5-1.

Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday missed a second straight game with a strained lower left side and back, while the Brewers' Ryan Braun was given the night off so he can keep his left leg healthy for the stretch run.  The Brewers will continue to monitor Braun's left leg.

Brewers Take Game 1 in Series With Cardinals

It was a true team effort for the Milwaukee Brewers last night.

Casey McGehee doubled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, and Milwaukee widened its lead atop the NL Central with a 5-3 triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Yuniesky Betancourt hit an insurance sacrifice fly for the Brewers, who have won five straight and 12 of their last 13 contests. They are now four games in front of the second-place Cardinals. Corey Hart belted a two-run homer for the visitors from Milwaukee.

David Freese had two hits and an RBI for the Cardinals, who missed a chance to possibly grab the opener of this three-game series. In the ninth, Rafael Furcal singled to center with two outs off LaTroy Hawkins (1-0). Daniel Descalso then hit a bouncer to second base, but Betancourt booted the ball, as Furcal moved into scoring position. Albert Pujols couldn't come through as he flied out to right.

Nyjer Morgan singled leading off the 10th against Octavio Dotel (0-1), and Prince Fielder's base hit to center put runners at the corners with one out. McGehee then double to right and Betancourt's fly ball to center made it a two-run cushion.

John Axford notched his 33rd save of the year by working around a Lance Berkman one-out double.

Attanasio Shows His Commitment to Milwaukee

Brewers principal owner Mark Attanasio said Thursday's $105 million contract extension for outfielder Ryan Braun should show that he's rooted in Milwaukee and not planning to pursue the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Attanasio, a Los Angeles-based financier, was one of the names bandied about as a potential Dodgers suitor after news that Major League Baseball was assuming day-to-day operations of the club from Frank McCourt. But Attanasio said he has not done any investigating into the Dodgers situation -- "absolutely none" -- and does not intend to do so.

Why does his name keep popping up in rumors involving other teams?

"Because this is very big news in Los Angeles," said Attanasio, who was born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., as a Yankees fan but has lived in L.A. for more than decade. "There's a lot of folks' names that seem to be coming up a lot. I guess mine keeps coming up."

Attanasio said Braun's extension should demonstrate both the player's commitment to Milwaukee and the owner's. Attanasio owns a home in a downtown Milwaukee high-rise and has been the Brewers' principal owner since 2005.

Brewers spokesperson Tyler Barnes was first to address the rumors on Thursday morning when he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that, "Attanasio is thrilled to be the owner of the Brewers." Barnes said.

´╗┐Let's hope he keeps getting players that help the Brewers get to the playoffs and then the World Series.
