MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jhonny Peralta, Tommy Pham and Aledmys Diaz homered, helping Carlos Martinez and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-1 on Saturday.

Peralta hit a leadoff drive in the second off Chase Anderson (4-10). Pham connected for a solo shot and Diaz belted a three-run homer during the Cardinals' five-run ninth.

Martinez (8-6) struck out a season-high 11 in five innings in his first win since June 11. The right-hander allowed one run and four hits with four walks.

Anderson lasted just four innings. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit an RBI single in the third for Milwaukee's only run.
