Kyle Lohse finally beat the St. Louis Cardinals, and the win didn't come that easily. Lohse beat the Cardinals in his fourth try this season and Sean Halton knocked in a career-high three runs to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat St. Louis 6-3 Tuesday night. ''They made me work for it,'' he said after improving to 3-5 in nine outings overall against his former team. ''I felt like I threw a lot of really good pitches and they kept battling them off, fouling them off, taking close ones.'' Lohse had his best major league season in 2012 when he went 16-3 with a 2.88 ERA in 33 starts with St. Louis. The Cardinals did not try to re-sign him and he became a free agent. Lohse said the win was just like any other even if it snapped a five-game losing streak against the Cardinals. ''I don't put any more emphasis on any one game over the other,'' he said. ''I went out there and tried to do what I'd been doing.'' Lo...

Milwaukee's Kyle Lohse looks sharp against former team

MILWAUKEE -- In Kyle Lohse's first three starts this season against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Milwaukee Brewers couldn't score for him.

Brewers' Tom Gorzelanny showing he may be better suited to relief role

MILWAUKEE -- Tom Gorzelanny's audition to be in next year's starting rotation has hit a rough patch, one that may eventually cost him his chance to finish the season as a starting pitcher. While the veteran left-hander will make his next scheduled start, Gorzelanny didn't help his cause Wednesday against St. Louis. The Cardinals batted around and scored six runs in the...

Brewers Wednesday: Donovan Hand called up again

MILWAUKEE -- By air and by car, Donovan Hand is racking up the miles between Milwaukee and Nashville. The right-hander was sent down to Triple-A on Friday, but is back with the team Wednesday after Rob Wooten was placed on the paternity list. Because there are no direct flights from Nashville to Milwaukee, Hand caught a 6 a.m. flight to Chicago on Wednesday morning where a car was...

Brewers Tuesday: Juan Francisco searches for consistency at the plate

MILWAUKEE -- After back-to-back four strikeout games, Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Juan Francisco got Tuesday off in an attempt to clear his mind. Francisco is 1-for-17 with 13 strikeouts on the current homestand and was visually frustrated Monday night. While Francisco is a high strikeout and big power player, he has recently been missing pitches he usually drives. Former Astros...

Milwaukee's Brandon Kintzler sees poor run of luck in loss to St. Louis

MILWAUKEE -- Statistics are used heavily in baseball, but they are defied when the game is actually played. Brewers reliever Brandon Kintzler has dominated left-handed hitters all season long, entering Monday having allowed just 11 hits and a .147 batting average to lefties this year. In the decisive top of the eighth inning Monday, St. Louis left-handed hitters got five hits off...

Kolten Wong is already making a difference with his legs

When the St. Louis Cardinals finally decided to promote second base prospect Kolten Wong, fans in the St. Louis area wondered how manager Mike Matheny would deploy his new toy and from the outset, it looks like Matheny plans to play Wong often. The 22-year old has now started four out of five games since his promotion and is already making a huge difference with legs. On Monday night...

Brewers fans appear willing to forgive and forget with Braun

They are a forgiving lot, these Milwaukee Brewers fans. Even when it comes to Ryan Braun. Shortly before the Cardinals' game Wednesday afternoon in Milwaukee, FOX Sports Midwest reporter Jim Hayes scoured the parking lots and sidewalks around Miller Park to ask Brewers fans what they thought about their disgraced left fielder. Braun, of course, recently accepted a 65-game...

Recap: Carpenter's single helps Cards rally over Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Matt Carpenter hit an RBI single with two outs in the eighth inning, putting the St. Louis Cardinals ahead during a four-run rally Monday night in an 8-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Cardinals-Braves: A Birds Eye View

The Cardinals return home from a suspenseful, yet successful road trip to face the Atlanta Braves for a four game tilt starting Thursday night.

Recap: Beltran, Craig, Holliday homer as Cardinals capture Brewers series

MILWAUKEE (AP) Carlos Beltran and Allen Craig hit towering home runs in St. Louis' six-run second inning, and the Cardinals held off the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 on Wednesday.

Using golf radar to better Cardinals pitchers

The St. Louis Cardinals use a radar system designed for golf to study everything about a pitcher’s delivery.

The Cardinals Rollercoaster Season

The Cardinals are neck and neck with the Pirates and Reds. I pretty much could have called it that the Reds are there, but not so much the Pirates. They may fall off still, but they look pretty damn good as a team. They are perhaps the most well-rounded team in the NL Central, which has proved to be a tough division. Well-rounded doesn’t mean best though. While Fangraphs does...

Braves-Cardinals Preview

A sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals last month was the launching point for the Atlanta Braves' lengthy winning streak. Now, the Cardinals will look to take advantage of a depleted Braves lineup in the opener of a four-game set Thursday night in St. Louis.
