Latest news for Milwaukee Brewers vs St. Louis Cardinals on 5/28/2022.

@Brewers1 H

The Brewers had a chance to re-take the NL Central lead and take an 8-7 lead in the season series between them and the Cardinals. They had the lead early, but couldn't build off of that. Meanwhile, the pitching staff couldn't hold off the Cardinals rally, and the Brewers lost to the Cardinals 6-4.

The Brewers struck first thanks to a two-run home run from Hunter Renfroe in the second. The Cardinals responded right away in the bottom of the inning with a solo home run from Albert Pujols. After two innings, the Brewers had a 2-1 lead.

Box Score

After a long week for Brewers fans, they finally got a chance to see their favorite team play at home. A little home cooking might be the remedy for the slumping Brew Crew, as the combination of hot bats and good pitching aided the Brewers to a 5-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds, ending their four-game win streak.

Just like the last three games against the Pirates, it was the Brewers who scored first. Yelich led off the game with a walk. Two batters later, Rowdy Tellez hit a moonshot to right field to give the Brewers an early 2-0 lead.

It was a pitchers' duel in St. Louis on a balmy Saturday night. With two aces on the mound, the Brewers and Cardinals couldn't get much offense going the entire night.

Corbin Burnes lasted seven innings for the Crew, giving up just one run on four hits with zero walks and six strikeouts. The Cardinals' run marks the first earned run for Burnes across three starts (21 innings) against St. Louis this season, good for a 0.43 ERA.

Despite the strong start, Burnes was outpitched by the 40-year-old Wainwright. Waino went nine innings for the Cardinals, allowing one run on a solo shot from Luis Urias in the eighth inning.

His Cardinals hadn't won a World Series since he was in preschool. And there was Jim Mielke, wedged into the front row of the Busch Stadium bleachers, his right leg dangling over the right-field wall. He watched Bruce Sutter fire the final strike from upon the glorious green stage. And right then, Mielke broke the fourth wall by jumping over the outfield wall.

"I remember the drop down being farther that I thought it would be," said Mielke, 60, who was 20 in 1982. "It was chaos, people running in every direction. And I've always been a souvenir guy.

We're now two starts into Jose Quintana's Cardinals tenure and it appears there's already an arsenal adjustment in the works. You all should know by now that I love arsenal adjustments.

I find it fascinating when a pitcher tweaks his pitches in an effort to improve. And I find it especially fascinating that Quintana may be changing his arsenal.

Tere's two reasons why. The first is that he's a successful pitcher. He had a 3.24 FIP and 2.1 fWAR with the Pirates. You all know how the old saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Bob Forsch would have been smiling. The last Cardinals pitcher to author a no-hitter in St. Louis was not on hand Saturday night at Busch Stadium to witness potential history, having died in 2011.

But Forsch's second wife, Jan, and daughters Amy and Kristin were here to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1982 Cardinals World Series championship. There was almost much more to celebrate, though.

Adam Wainwright, 18 days shy of 41 years old, flirted with the first no-hitter tossed here since Forsch threw one on Sept. 26, 1983, against the Montreal Expos. He took it 6 2/3 innings before Milwaukee's Andrew McCutchen singled with two outs in the seventh.
