Ryan Braun is on a tear. For the second straight game, the Brewers left fielder clubbed a pair of home runs in Milwaukee's 8-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park. It helped the Brewers take 3 out of 4 from the Cardinals in the series.
Dave Bush held the Cardinals to a run on four hits in six innings of work, picking up his first win of the season. Bush helped his own cause in the third inning, leading off with a double, which jump started the Brewers to a 5-run frame.
Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa and catcher Yadier Molina were both ejected from the game.
The Brewers host the Dodgers in the first of a three game series at Miller Park tonight. The Dodgers, who have lost four straight, will send Brady Penny (5-3) to the mound. The Brewers go with Carlos Villanueva (1-4).
