The Milwaukee Brewers were shutout by the St. Louis Cardinals 8-0 and were swept in a home series for the first time since last September when Florida took three from the Brewers.
The Cardinals won their 5th in a row as Adam Wainwright gave up just 2-hits in seven scoreless innings to get the win. Yadier Molina homered twice off of Brewers starter Dave Bush for the Cardinals.
The Brewers missed out on a big scoring chance in the 3rd when Wainwright pitched out of a bases loaded jam by striking out rookie Ryan Braun.
The Cardinals outscored the Brewers 28-7 in the series and Milwaukee now has dropped 13 of their last 18 games.
The Brewers are just a half game in front of the Cubs and 2 1/2 in front of the Cardinals entering play today. They'll face the Cincinnati Reds in the first of a three game series tonight at Miller Park.
