ST. LOUIS, MO (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers lost two of their biggest stars when they lost at Saint Louis 5-4 in 10 innings on Sunday. First baseman Corey Hart left in the fifth inning, after he sprained his left ankle in the fourth while reversing back to second on a single from Jonathan Lucroy. Left-fielder Ryan Braun left in the sixth inning when he aggravated a lingering strain in his right wrist. He said he irritated the wrist on an awkward swing, and he’s had the problem for a little while. It’s not known how long either player will be out. Allen Craig hit a walk-off single to give the Cardinals the victory. That was after Milwaukee’s Norichika Aoki tied the game with a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the ninth off Jason Motte. Aoki also doubled to extend Milwaukee’s Major League-leading streak of 79 games with an extra-base hit. Kameron Loe took the loss, dropping to 6-and-5. The Brewers took two-of-three at Saint Louis, but they feel two games below .500 – and they’re now six games out of Wild Card contention with 22 left. Starter Lance Lynn got the win in relief for the Redbirds. He threw a scoreless 10th to improve to 14-7. The Cards snapped a three-game losing streak, as they continue to hold onto the N-L’s second Wild Card spot. The Brewers lost only their second game in their last six. They’re back home to fact Atlanta tonight. Right-hander Wily Peralta will start for the Brew Crew against Braves’ left-hander Mike Minor. Coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35
