Starting in place of Juan Francisco rookie Sean Halton took full advantage of his opportunity Tuesday night.
The first baseman one of a number of reinforcements who have bounced back and forth between Milwaukee and Class AAA Nashville this season drove in three runs with a pair of singles to help lead the Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park.
The three RBI were one more than Halton had managed in 22 previous games with the Brewers who won for the first time in six tries at home against their National League Central Division nemesis.
