ST. LOUIS, MO (WHBL) - Jonathan Lucroy homered in the 10th inning Sunday to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 victory at Saint Louis. The Brewers set a new team futility record by going 32 consecutive innings without scoring. Ryan Braun broke that dubious string with a two-run homer in the eighth. The old record was 31 scoreless innings, set by the 1972 Brewers. In the ninth, Milwaukee came from behind to force extra innings when Yuniesky Betancourt doubled home Carlos Gomez. Brandon Kintzler, Michael Gonzalez, and Burke Badenhop finished off the Cards in the bottom of the 10th, leaving the tying run stranded on second. Kintzler got the win. He’s 1-0. Badenhop picked up his first save since 2011. Fernando Salas gave up the Lucroy home run and took the loss. The Braun homer ended a string of 39 scoreless innings by Saint Louis pitchers – and they fell just shy of throwing four shutouts in a row for the first time since 1943. The Brewers avoided being blanked in three straight games for the first time since May of 1972. Milwaukee remains last in the National League Central at 3-8. The Crew is off today, and will host San Francisco tomorrow night.
