Brewers 8, Cardinals 4
Jason Rogers hit a pinch-hit grand slam off Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth inning Sunday to highlight Milwaukee’s seven-run outburst that rallied it past the St. Louis Cardinals. Rosenthal, going for his club-record 48th save, allowed a single to Shane Peterson, hit Martin Maldonado with a pitch and walked Jonathan Lucroy, all with no outs. Rogers then clubbed an 0-1 fastball into the seats in deep left-center, his fourth home run of the season.
By the numbers
John Lackey’s brilliant start was wasted. Lackey got a no-decision despite allowing one run on five hits in seven innings,with two walks and seven strikeouts. ... Seth Maness relieved Rosenthal (2-4) and allowed a single and a walk before Khris Davis’ three-run homer that made it 8-3. ... Matt Carpenter and Stephen Piscotty had back-to-back homers in the seventh against Jeremy Jeffress to snap a 1-1 tie. ... Rosenthal has allowed home runs in his last two outings after permitting just one in his first 65 games.
