MILWAUKEE (AP) – Khris Davis hit two home runs, including a two-run shot in the eighth inning off recent teammate Jonathan Broxton, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat St. Louis 5-4 Sunday and ended the Cardinals’ four-game winning streak.
Broxton (1-3), traded from Milwaukee to the NL Central leaders on July 31, relieved Kevin Siegrist with a runner on second and one out with a 4-3 lead.
Davis hit the first pitch into the Cardinals’ bullpen for his 11th homer.
Will Smith (5-2) pitched a scoreless eighth. Francisco Rodriguez worked the ninth for his 26th save in 26 chances this year.
Davis earlier hit a two-run homer off Cardinals starter John Lackey.
Last Thursday, Davis hit a pair of three-run homers in Milwaukee’s 10-1 win over San Diego. He had been held hitless in six at-bats during the first two games of this series, a pair of shutouts for the Cardinals, before breaking loose.
