For the second straight night, the Milwaukee Brewers fell behind the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0, rallied to get even and won in extra innings. On Tuesday night at Busch Stadium, Lyle Overbay's single scored Carlos Gomez in the top of the 11th lifting the Brewers to a 5-4 victory. St. Louis started fast as Yadier Molina smashed a three run home run in the first inning off Kyle Lohse. The Brewers got all three runs back in the 4th and it was Lohse who came up with a huge, 2 strike, 2 out base hit to drive in the tying runs. Gomez launched a solo shot in the top of the 7th to put Milwaukee on top but the Cardinals answered with a run in the bottom half against reliever Will Smith. Tyler Thornburg worked two scoreless innings for his third win and Francisco Rodriguez recorded his major league leading 13th save. The shorthanded Brewers were without Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Jean Segura although Segura came on as a pinch hitter and grounded out. Milwaukee's victory clinches it's first series win against the Cardinals since late in 2012. The Brewers (20-7) maintain the best record in the majors and they now lead St. Louis by six and a half games. Milwaukee will send Matt Garza to the mound against Shelby Miller as the go for a sweep in St. Louis Wednesday afternoon. Pre-game coverage begins at 12:10 PM on WTAQ.
