Umpire Will Little has ejected Matt Carpenter and then manager Mike Shildt for arguing a called third strike on Carpenter. It was a bad call. Everyone's going to rip Little. He did extend Carpenter a lot of leeway, but when Carpenter turned around AGAIN to say something more as he walked away, Little gave him the thumb.

Brewers take late lead on errant pick-off (0:40)

The Cardinals are doing everything they can to lose this game. After Eric Thames triples with one out off Bud Norris and Mike Moustakas is intentionally walked, Norris throws wild on a pickoff attempt at first base and Thames trots in with the go-ahead run.

Cardinals go deep twice in 6th to take lead (0:34)

Wow, huge turn of events in St. Louis. Marcell Ozuna lines a two-run homer off Josh Hader to give the Cards a 4-3 lead. St. Louis had been 3-for-28 off Hader in 2018 entering the inning and went home run, walk, home run without Hader getting an out yet.

Not a good top of the sixth for Cardinals pitchers as they walk three batters and hit another and the Brewers score two runs without a hit to take a 3-1 lead. Jose Martinez, however, homers to center off Josh Hader and now it's 3-2.

Brewers announcers said Ryan Braun told them he woke up this morning with a good feeling in his gut about this series against the Cardinals and he just crushed a second-inning home run into the upper deck in left field off Jack Flaherty to give the Brewers the 1-0 lead.

Law: Players I was wrong about

Who saw Cardinals outfielder Harrison Bader or Oakland's Matt Chapman improving by leaps and bounds? Not Keith Law, who can admit his mistakes.


Braves snap 4-game losing streak behind Freeman, Toussaint

Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs, Touki Toussaint pitched into the sixth inning and the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves snapped a four-game skid with a 7-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

Anibal Sanchez -- has there been a bigger surprise this season? -- had another solid outing for the Braves, leaving with a 2-1 deficit, but the Cardinals tacked on four runs in the eighth off the Atlanta bullpen. Yadier Molina capped the rally with a two-run single after an eight-pitch battle against Sam Freeman. Given some of the issues in their own bullpen, a much-needed cushion for the Cardinals.
