Brewers top Cards in 10

ST. LOUIS — Jeff Bianchi drove in two runs with a 10th-inning single up the middle, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 on Saturday night.

Joe Kelly (0-2) allowed runs for the first time in five appearances and took the loss. He allowed two hits and a walk in one inning for the Cardinals, who fell to 0-3 in extra-inning games.

John Axford (1-3) gave up one hit and two walks in 1 1-3 innings to earn the win. Axford struck out two, including pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso with the bases loaded to end a ninth-inning threat.

Jim Henderson worked a perfect inning for his eighth save in eight chances.

Bianchi made his second start since coming off the disabled list on May 2 after he sidelined by bursitis in his left hip. The winning hit gave him his first two RBIs this season.

Jean Segura, Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez all had three hits for the Brewers. Segura and Braun both had two RBIs.

The Cardinals used four consecutive singles with two outs in the sixth inning to tie it 4-4. Matt Carpenter’s hit chased Milwaukee starter Marco Estrada and drove in Pete Kozma who started the rally. Jon Jay’s single brought in Ty Wigginton.

Braun gave Milwaukee a 4-2 lead in the fifth with his second single of the game.

The Brewers broke through in the third with a two-out rally. Segura’s fourth triple of the season drove in Bianchi and Norichika Aoki to make it 2-2. Braun gave Milwaukee a 3-2 lead with his first single.

St. Louis scored twice in the second but left the bases loaded. Kozma drove in Allen Craig, who walked to start the inning. Carpenter’s single gave the Cardinals a 2-0 lead.

Estrada gave up four runs, seven hits and four walks over 5 2-3 innings. He struck out two.

Lance Lynn lasted just five innings. He gave up four earned runs on eight hits and two walks as his ERA rose to 3.27 from 2.88.
