- The Cardinals hit three more home runs Monday night, but it was a bunt back to the pitcher that turned out to be the deciding play of the 6-5 win over the Brewers in Milwaukee.
- A throwing error by third baseman Jonathan Villar on the play in the ninth inning allowed Stephen Piscotty to score all the win from first and break a 5-5 tie. The Cardinals had tied the game in the eighth on a two-run homer by Randal Grichuk after earlier homers from Jedd Gyorko and Kolten Wong.
- Carlos Martinez struck out a career-high 13 batters in six innings and left with a 2-1 lead, only to see the bullpen give up four runs to the Brewers in the bottom of the seventh.
= Adam Wainwright, celebrating his 35th birthday, will get the start in the second game of the series tonight while Wily Peralta is scheduled to start for the Brewers.
