ST. LOUIS, MO (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers got crushed by the Cardinals 9-3 Wednesday afternoon at Busch Stadium. The Crew was up 3-1 until Matt Adams put the Cardinals in front for good with a three-run homer in the third inning. Milwaukee starter Matt Garza left in the fourth with a right thumb contusion. He's day-to-day. Garza took the loss, dropping to 1-3. He gave up five runs in his three innings on five hits with four walks and four strikeouts. Seldom-used Rule-Five draft pick Wei-Chung Wang had his longest outing of the season, giving up four runs in three innings. And to spare an overworked bullpen, catcher Martin Maldonado was sent to the mound in the eighth with the game out of reach. He gave up only a single to Allen Craig, who went 4 for 5 for the Cardinals on the day with a solo homer and three R-B-I's. Shelby Miller improved to 5-0 lifetime against the Brewers. He gave up three runs in six-plus innings, and is now 3-2 on the year. Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer and Carlos Gomez belted a solo shot for Milwaukee, which went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position. Despite the loss, the Brewers took 2 of 3 from the Cardinals, and set a team-record by finishing with a 20-8 record in April - only the fourth Major League team ever to have 20 wins before May first. Milwaukee will open a four-game series at Cincinnati tonight. Right-hander Marco Estrada will start against Reds' right-hander Homer Bailey. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 5:35.
