Brewers end home slate with a win

Jim Henderson struck out Matt Adams with two runners on and two out in the 9th inning last night to pitch the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in the home finale at Miller Park last night.

It was Adams who clubbed a 2-run homer off of Henderson in the ninth inning on Friday to snap a 4-4 tie and give the Cardinals a win in 10-innings.

The Brewers finished 37-44 at home this season.  The Cardinals finished 14-5 against the Brewers this season.

Norihika Aoki doubled home a run and scored three times for the Brewers.  Wily Peralta gave up five hits and walked five in five-plus innings for the Brewers.

The Cardinals had learned earlier in the day that they clinched at least a spot in the post-season playoffs.  They hold a 2-game lead on both Cincinnati and Pittsburgh atop the NL Central with a week left in the regular season.
