Aguilar's 1st HR, in 100th AB, lifts Brewers over Cards 5-4

The St. Louis Cardinals' home game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night has been postponed by bad weather.

The St. Louis Cardinals have placed outfielder Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day disabled list.

Brewers: Broxton's big day helps beat Cardinals 5-4

Getting 4 1/3 scoreless innings from their relievers and a tie-breaking home run from Jesus Aguilar in the seventh, Milwaukee edged the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 at Busch Stadium. Fortunately for the Redbirds, both Pham and starting left fielder Randal Grichuk are capable of playing center field, so the team still has multiple options in center field should Fowler require an absence of some degree.

Drake got his second win of the series, striking out Matt Carpenter to strand runners at second and third in the sixth inning.

BREWERS KEY TRENDS: The Brewers are 4-1 in their last five games versus National League Central rivals and have won eight of their last 10 road games when they face a right-handed starter.
