Brewers beat Cardinals 6-4 in home finale

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Norichika Aoki scored three times and doubled home a run, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat sloppy St. Louis 6-4 on Sunday night, hours after the Cardinals clinched a playoff berth.

Wily Peralta (11-15) gave up five hits and walked five in five-plus innings for the Brewers. The Cardinals put the go-ahead run at the plate with two outs in the ninth, but closer Jim Henderson got slugger Matt Adams to strike out to end the game and earn his 26th save.

St. Louis learned earlier Sunday it was assured of at least an NL wild card after Washington lost.

However, the Cardinals weren't sharp on the field. Starter Joe Kelly (9-5) had one of two errors in the Brewers' two-run second.
