MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers have a five-game losing streak, after getting crushed by the Saint Louis Cardinals 10-1 Sunday at Miller Park. The Brewers were swept by the Redbirds in a four-game series for the first time in their 44-year history. Saint Louis scored six runs with two out in the second inning on three hits, three walks, and a hit batter. Marco Estrada took the loss, giving up eight runs in three and a third innings. He walked five and struck out five, as his record fell to 2-2. Jamie Garcia got the win, scattering eight hits in eight frames. Brewers’ reliever Alfredo Figaro drove in his team’s only run on a single in the fifth off Garcia, who’s now 4-1. Allen Craig doubled, tripled, and drove in four runs as the Cardinals won their sixth straight overall, and their seventh consecutive road game. Matt Holliday added a two-run homer off Estrada, who has now given up a gopher ball in each of his last seven starts. For Milwaukee, Carlos Gomez doubled to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. Ryan Braun singled, doubled, and walked, and Yuniesky Betancourt singled twice. The Brewers have dropped back to fourth place in the National League Central at 14-16, five-and-a-half behind the division-leading Cardinals. The Brewers are off today, and will host Texas tomorrow night.
