ST. LOUIS, MO (WHBL) - St. Louis Cardinal rookie pitcher Shelby Miller allowed the Brewers just one hit and no walks in seven shutout innings of pitching Friday night. The Cards blanked Milwaukee 2-0 in the first of a three-game weekend series. Norichika Aoki got the only single Miller gave up on a cool night which saw a near sellout crowd deal with temperatures in the mid-40s. The rookie retired the last 17 batters he faced. The team offered a tribute to Hall of Famer Stan Musial. Kyle Lohse took the loss for Milwaukee despite pitching well against his former teammates. Lohse gave up a run-scoring single to third baseman David Freese in the second inning, then catcher Yadier Molina pounded his second home run of the young season in the seventh. Trevor Rosenthal and Mitch Boggs closed out the victory. Brewer first baseman Alex Gonzalez was taken out of the game an inning after he was hit in the hand. X-rays were negative. The two teams hook up again today. Coverage on WHBL begins at 2:40.
