Cardinals' Wainwright does it all in win over Brewers

He walked only one, but failed to record a strikeout.

Wainwright clubbed a two run home run in the third inning, then added a two run single in the fourth, driving in four of the Cardinals six runs.

Brewers: RHP Wily Peralta (3-0, 2.65) makes his fourth start of the season and 17th overall against the Cardinals who have been tough on him. He departed after throwing 100 pitches.

"He did find a nice groove after that (first inning)", Matheny said.

Peralta gave up nine hits and six runs in four innings, failing to strike out a batter for the first time in 20 starts dating to May 2016.

Infielder Jhonny Peralta was put on the 10-day disabled list by the St. Louis Cardinals because of an upper respiratory issue. "If I get him out, I probably pitch better". Orlando Arcia doubled to drive in a run in the fourth and Ryan Braun drove in the final run with a solo home run in the 9th. "We were at a point where we needed relievers", Counsell said.

Seung Hwan Oh worked around a two-out Jonathan Villar single in the ninth for his third save. Nieuwenhuis, 29, had just two hits and four walks in 30 plate appearances this season while playing off the bench. "It does seem complicated to where he doesn't seem like he's got that power that he normally has", Matheny said.

Our algorithms project Wainwright for a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 167 1/3 innings pitched the rest of the way.
