Found April 16, 2014 on Fox Sports Midwest:
The Cardinals won another series but left Milwaukee without a feat that has eluded them during the season's first two weeks: A sweep. Taking advantage of a two-out error by Jhonny Peralta, the Brewers scored three unearned runs in the fifth on the way to a 5-1 victory that gave them the last game of the three-game series and ended the Cardinals' winning streak at four. The Cardinals lost more than a game, too. Starter Joe Kelly had to leave the game when he injured his left hamstring trying to beat out a bunt in the fifth inning.

The Cardinals' series at Washington and the New York Mets both are scheduled for four games. 3 UP -- Yadier Molina. Allen Craig supplied the Cardinals' run with his first homer of the season, but Molina was the lone player in the lineup with two hits. A multi-hit game was nothing out of the or...
