Revitalized Brewers look for another win against Cardinals

Getting his first start in almost a week, St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Jose Martinez took advantage of the situation, belting a pair of solo home runs to help lead his team to a 6-0 victory over Milwaukee in the first game of today's doubleheader.

St. Louis Cardinals' Matt Carpenter celebrates as he rounds the bases after hitting a solo home run off Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Jared Hughes during the seventh inning in the second game of a baseball doubleheader Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in St. Louis.

Cardinals 6, Brewers 0: Playing time in the St. Louis outfield has been hard to come by for Jose Martinez lately. Brewers 3B Travis Shaw was reinstated from the family medical emergency list and OF Brett Phillips was optioned to Colorado Springs.

Brewers right-hander Jimmy Nelson went 5⅔ innings, but is still winless in 11 career games (10 starts) against the Cardinals. Jimmy lost it in the sixth, giving up two singles to start the inning, then hitting Greg Garcia with a two strike pitch.

Jacob Barnes allowed a lead-off single in the bottom of the eighth but worked a scoreless frame, and Corey Knebel saw his appearances streak with a strikeout move to 33 games when he fanned Stephen Piscotty looking to end the game, gaining his ninth save of the season. "The eighth inning was great at-bats up and down the lineup". Carpenter followed with an RBI double and scored on Fowler's single to make it 3-0.

"I think this park, I just kind of find my stroke whenever I get here", Broxton said.

Broxton is hitting.583 (7 for 12) with two homers and five RBIs at Busch Stadium this season.

Kolten Wong had an RBI double and Martinez added a sacrifice fly as the Cardinals extended their lead to 5-0 in the sixth. We knew this going in and I knew that she was going to have to have surgery.

Martinez's homer to left in the eighth travelled 436 feet. "I had good stuff; I was just missing here and there at times".

The Brewers couldn't capitalize on Lynn's lack of command, stranding seven runners in the first five innings. Carpenter now has hits in each of his last six games, with three homers and seven RBI over the same span. Hernan Perez popped to shallow center in the fifth after a walk had loaded the bases with one out in the fifth and Travis Shaw flied out to center to leave the bases loaded.

Anthony Rizzo began the game with a long home run after a surprising move to the leadoff spot, rookie Ian Happ hit his first career grand slam and the Chicago Cubs trounced the New York Mets 14-3 on Tuesday night. But Woodruff was scratched less than 20 minutes before first pitch with right hamstring tightness and replaced by LHP Brent Suter. He knocked out St. Louis starter Marco Gonzales in the fourth, ripping a triple to left-center that scored Pina for a 4-2 advantage.
