The Brewers and Cardinals continue their four-game series Friday night at Miller Park. "He's got a good fastball, good changeup, really good slider".

Seung Hwan Oh worked around a two-out Jonathan Villar single in the ninth for his third save.

The Baltimore Orioles needed 10 innings to overcome the Cincinnati Reds 2-1, the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 6-4, the Washington Nationals got past the Atlanta Braves 3-2 and the Texas Rangers had a 1-0 win over the Kansas City Royals after 13 innings.

Peralta helped out on offense, putting the Brewers on the board with a run-batted-in single in the second inning.

St. Louis Cardinals' Adam Wainwright is congratulated by Kolten Wong (16) after hitting a two-run home run during the third inning of a baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 21, 2017, in Milwaukee. Orlando Arcia doubled to drive in a run in the fourth and Ryan Braun drove in the final run with a solo home run in the 9th. "He just wants to be in there", Matheny said.

"Kolten did an incredible athletic move to get to the plate", Matheny said. The Cardinals pitching staff has stepped up lately, as St. Louis has given up three or less runs in five of its last seven games. He sat out the four previous games, and the move was retroactive to Sunday.

"Ever since we left camp, he's been dealing with some upper respiratory issues that I think they (medical staff) were trying to identify", Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. "Unfortunately, it just didn't sit well with him". Garza began the season on the disabled list with a strained groin. His 2016 season ended July 31 because of a right knee stress reaction. The Milwaukee Brewers are 2-8 this season when allowing more than three runs and 7-1 when allowing three or less runs. With a win, he passes Dizzy Dean (134) for sole possession of 6th place all-time in franchise history.

The opposite-field shot, which came off Cardinals ace Carlos Martinez, was quite exciting for the Korean broadcast team calling the game for MBC Sports+. Lynn is 8-3 with a 2.36 ERA in 14 career starts against Milwaukee. Sale is 1-1 in four starts with a 0.91 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings.
