MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun and Corey Hart homered, Chris Narveson threw eight innings and the Milwaukee Brewers kept rolling at home despite a small fire in the ballpark in an 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

Narveson (3-4) began his career as a Cardinals draft pick, but he's played an important role in Milwaukee's rotation and stymied his former team after losing to St. Louis on May 8.

Braun's two-run homer made it 4-0 in the fifth and Hart hit a solo shot to start the sixth just as smoke started to billow in right field from a concession stand's malfunctioning popcorn machine.

Tony La Russa managed his 5,000th game for the Cardinals, but there was little he could have liked from this one after St. Louis managed just six hits.
