Cardinals' six-game win streak broken in 6-2 loss to Brewers
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Scooter Gennett drove in three runs and Mike Fiers pitched into the seventh inning to lead Milwaukee past St. Louis 6-2 Friday night, snapping the Brewers' nine-game losing streak and trimming the Cardinals' lead in the NL Central to three games.
Fiers (5-2) gave up two runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings, improving to 5-1 in six starts since being called up from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 9.
Cardinals starter John Lackey (2-2) gave up all six runs and nine hits in six innings as St. Louis snapped a six-game winning streak.
Gennett had a two-run single in the third and an RBI double in the fifth, and Lucroy added a run-scoring single to put the Brewers up 4-0.
Jhonny Peralta's 19th homer got St. Louis on the board in the sixth, but Khris Davis' two-run shot in the bottom of the inning made it 6-1.
