The St. Louis Cardinals managed 10 hits but only two runs on Tuesday night during a 3-2 loss to the division rival Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. St. Louis starter Joe Kelly was the hard luck loser, falling to 1-2 on the season after throwing six innings and allowing six hits and two earned runs. The loss drops the Cards to 47-44 on the year, while Milwaukee moves to 43-47.
Rickie Weeks' solo homer in the fourth inning that broke a 2-2 tie proved to be the decisive swing of the game. It was the ninth long ball of the year for the second baseman, and his only hit of the night. Third baseman David Freese went 3-for-4 for St. Louis with a double. Carlos Beltran drove in his 66th run of the season with a sacrifice fly in the third for the Cards.
