Cardinals lead the Brewers 9-2 after seven innings at Busch

After a walk to Harrison Bader, his third of the game, pinch-hitter Yairo Munoz hit into a forceout and the plate. Dexter Fowler followed with a bases-loaded walk, pushing the Cardinals' lead to 8-2.

After Claudio was replaced by righthanded Junior Guerra, who walked Harrison Bader on a 3-1 pitch to tie the score at 2. Guerra followed by striking out pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter for the second out and then went to a 3-0 count against Dexter Fowler before the Cardinals' outfielder delivered a bloop double to left on a 3-2 pitch that cleared the bases and put the Cardinals on top 5-2.
