Aguilar's 1st HR, in 100th AB, lifts Brewers over Cards

Dexter Fowler had a two-run triple to highlight the Cardinals' three-run second inning but left the game with a strained shoulder after a diving attempt in center in the Brewers' three-run third.

Fowler joins fellow outfielder Stephen Piscotty in the trainer's room as they both had an early night.

Fowler hit a two-run triple in a three-run second, but Travis Shaw had a two-run double in the third and scored on Broxton's double.

But the Brewers rallied, thanks to the long ball, first from Broxton, then Aguilar. But right fielder Piscotty came up with a one-hop throw to Molina at the plate to cut down the speedy Broxton.

Randal Grichuk moved from left to centre and Aledmys Diaz shifted from shortstop to left in the first outfield appearance of his professional career. Grichuk made a leaping catch against the wall to rob Jonathan Villar of a leadoff extra base hit in the third.

The Breweres left 13 on base while the Cardinals left 11. But Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright couldn't hold that lead and Milwaukee tied the game 3-3 with a three run third inning. The result gave Milwaukee (15-14) its first series victory against its National League Central rival since April 2014, a span of 17 series which included 15 defeats and two splits.

"It's about getting wins", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to St. Louis. He'd get a sacrifice bunt down successfully, but the Cardinals were unable to capitalize.

What's more, St. Louis has also pushed back the start time of Thursday's series finale from 12:45 p.m.to 6:15 p.m. CT, although the projected hourly forecast doesn't offer much hope. I think that can be a good fit, to give the guys who are taking those kind of at-bats an opportunity.

On April 21 in Milwaukee, Wainwright picked up his first victory of the season, allowing two runs on six hits over five innings.

Oliver Drake (2-0) got his second win with a scoreless sixth and Neftali Feliz, the last of five relievers, pitched the ninth for his eighth save.
