The Brewers play game two of their series at St. Louis on Tuesday at 7:15 p.m.

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Khris Davis overcame striking out four times earlier in the game and came through with a run-scoring triple in the 12th inning to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.

Davis drove in Jonathan Lucroy, who doubled off Seth Maness to start the inning. Mark Reynolds then drove in Davis with a sacrifice fly. Davis, who finished 1 for 6, struck out in the second, fifth, sixth and 10th innings.

Zach Duke picked up the win with two innings of scoreless relief, and Francisco Rodriguez recorded his 12th save in as many opportunities by getting Jhonny Peralta to fly out with two on to end the game.

Milwaukee, which leads the majors with 19 wins, has won four of five and eight of 10.

Allen Craig and Matt Holliday homered for St. Louis, which has lost four of six.
