Piscotty, Fowler hurt in Cardinals' 5-4 loss to Brewers
ST. LOUIS - Solo home runs from Keon Broxton and Jesus Aguilar helped the Milwaukee Brewers outlast the St. Louis Cardinals for a 5-4 win Thursday.
The Cardinals lost two key players to injury during the game. Stephen Piscotty left the game with a strained right hamstring in the second inning. Piscotty suffered the injury running out a ground ball hit to third base.
Dexter Fowler strained his right shoulder on an unsuccessful diving attempt for a fly ball in center field in the third inning. One inning earlier, Fowler hit a two-run triple to right field that scored Aldemys Diaz and Kolton Wong and gave St. Louis a 3-0 lead.
The Cardinals led the game 4-3 entering the fifth inning before Broxton's solo shot to left field tied the game at 4-4.
Aguilar won the game for the Brewers with a solo home run to left center field in the seventh inning that made the score 5-4 Milwaukee.
Brewers' reliever Oliver Drake pitched one scoreless inning to get the win for Milwaukee and improve his season record to 2-0. Closer Neftali Feliz tossed a scoreless ninth inning to earn his eighth save of the season.
Cardinals' reliever Matt Bowman allowed the home run to Aguilar and took the loss for St. Louis, dropping his season record to 1-1.
