View Map

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) -- MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Matt Carpenter had four hits and scored three times, Carlos Martinez pitched eight innings and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-0 on Monday.

Martinez (5-5) allowed five singles, walked one and struck out eight, rebounding nicely after having allowed at least four runs in each of his three previous starts. Entering Monday, Martinez had a 1.34 ERA in 15 career games, including four starts, against Milwaukee.

Carpenter sparked the offense from the leadoff spot. He even scored from second in the seventh after catcher Jonathan Lucroy lost track of a wild pitch by Jhan Marinez that trickled to the backstop.

The Cardinals built a 3-0 lead after three innings, with the lineup's top four hitters accounting for 10 of the team's 12 hits on the day.
