Finally, the Cardinals were able to notch their first victory over the Brewers this season!
The Birds got revenge on former mate Jeff Suppan who made them look like bush leaguers in St. Louis. This time, Sup couldn't make it four innings and the game was out of hand by the time he departed.

Five different Cardinals -- none of them named Pujols -- had at least two hits while starter Adam Wainwright seems to have really worked out the bugs that caused him so much trouble the first month of the season. Colby Rasmus was 2-for-5 to end the downward spiral that was his batting average while Wainwright went a brilliant 7 innings with five hits and two walks allowed compared to nine strikeouts.
Pujols did go 1-for-3 with a sacrifice and a pair of RBI as he struggles to find a pitch in the strike zone...
Cardinals Star of the Game: Wainwright
Lowlight: Yadier Molina is out of place in the cleanup spot, going 0-for-4 with an error behind the plate. Khalil Greene was 0-for-3 to sink to .202 on the season.
