MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers won their home season finale Sunday night, 6-4 over Saint Louis. The Brewers took a 4-0 lead after two innings and hung on from there. Norichika Aoki doubled, singled, walked, and scored three times. Aramis Ramirez, Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy, and Scooter Gennett also had R-B-I's for the Crew, which ended a three-game losing streak. Matt Carpenter hit the game's only home run, a solo shot for the Cardinals. Saint Louis had clinched a playoff spot earlier in the day when Washington lost. Still, Brewers' manager Ron Roenicke said the game had a playoff atmosphere that his team will benefit from in the future. Wily Peralta got the win, giving up three runs on five hits with five walks in five-plus innings. He's now 11-15, after winning threeof his last four starts. Jim Henderson gave up a run in the ninth, but left the potential tying run on first to get his 26th save. Joe Kelly took the loss, giving up six runs - three earned - in seven innings. The Cardinals still lead the National League Central by two-and-a-half games over both Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. The Brewers lost two of three to the Redbirds this weekend, and they closed out their Miller Park schedule at 37-44. Milwaukee will open its final week of the season tonight at Atlanta. Right-hander Marco Estrada faces Braves' left-hander Mike Minor. Pregame coverage on WHBL starts at 5:35.
