Randal Grichuk’s RBI single in the 10th inning gave the St. Louis Cardinals a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night at Miller Park.

It’s the sixth straight loss for the Brewers, which tied a season high.

Brewers logoThe loss goes to reliever Corey Knebel, who failed to do his job for the second straight night.  Knebel fell to 0-2 on the season.

The Brewers wasted an outstanding performance from starter Wily Peralta, who allowed one run on three hits while striking out ten in seven innings of work.  His ERA dropped from 6.68 to 5.53.

The Cardinals beat the Brewers for the 11th time in 14 games this season.

Adam Wainwright didn’t give up a run until the 6th inning when Keon Broxton led off with a double and scored on Martin Maldonado’s double.  Wainwright ended up pitching seven innings, allowing that run on three hits while striking out seven.

The Brewers were swept in four games by the Pirates and now the Cardinals have captured the first two games in this series.  The final game of the series is tonight with Matt Garza (4-6) facing Cardinals rookie Luke Weaver (1-1) in the pitching matchup.
