- Randal Grichuk's RBI single in the 10th inning - on the first at-bat of the game for the Cardinals with a runner in scoring position - gave the Cardinals a 2-1 win over the Brewers Tuesday night in Milwaukee.
- Jedd Gyorko's career-high 24th homer produced the other Cardinals' run and extended the Cardinals' streak to 19 consecutive games with at least one home run, tying the franchise record. They also have now hit at least one homer in 20 consecutive games in Milwaukee.
- Even though he was not involved in the decision, Adam Wainwright had his best start in the last six weeks, on his 35th birthday. He allowed just the one run on three hits over seven innings, recording seven strikeouts. Still he finished August without a win in six starts and has now gone eight consecutive starts since his last win on July 16.
- Rookie Luke Weaver will get the start tonight as the Cardinals try to complete the sweep of the three-game series. Matt Garza will start for the Brewers.
