It was a big win on many levels. The Milwaukee Brewers rallied from a 3-0 deficit at Busch Stadium to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 in 12 innings Monday night. Khris Davis, who had struck out four times on the night, delivered the go ahead triple that scored Jonathan Lucroy in the top of the 12th. Mark Reynolds brought home Davis with a sacrifice fly and the bullpen held down the Cards for the victory. St. Louis starter Michael Wacha pitched six scoreless innings before the Brewers knocked him out in the 7th. Meanwhile, Yovani Gallardo, who has struggled throughout his career against the Cards, gave up a run in the first and solo homers to Matt Holliday and Allen Craig before exiting after seven. Zach Duke pitched two scoreless innings for his second victory without a defeat and Francisco Rodriguez nailed down his league leading 12th save leaving two runners stranded in the bottom of the 12th. St. Louis has dominated the rivalry over the past couple of years and took two of three at Miller Park earlier this month, snapping the Crew's nine game winning streak. The victory gives Milwaukee a franchise record 19 wins in April, against 7 losses and expands their lead in the NL Central to 5 and a half games over the Cardinals. Milwaukee also won with Jean Segura and Ryan Braun on the bench with injuries and they were joined by Aramis Ramirez who got hit by a pitch in the left elbow. He tried to play on but left after the 7th inning. His status for game two of the series is uncertain. Kyle Lohse will face his old team Tuesday night, against Lance Lynn. Pre-game coverage begins at 6:40 PM on WTAQ.
