Brewers rally to edge Cardinals 2-1 in doubleheader opener

MILWAUKEE (AP) Keston Hiura hit a sacrifice fly to score Avisail Garcia with the winning run in the eighth inning as the Milwaukee Brewers rallied to edge the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in the opening game of a doubleheader Monday.

The Cardinals broke a scoreless tie in the top of the eighth when Tommy Edman's two-out single up the middle off Freddy Peralta (2-1) brought home Tyler O'Neill, who had started the inning on second base under Major League Baseball's new extra-inning format.

The Brewers answered off reliever Ryan Helsley (1-1) in the bottom of the eighth.
