Tyler Cravy held the St. Louis Cardinals scoreless through four innings.  But the Cardinals scored six times in the fifth inning and cruised to a 6-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night at Miller Park.

The shutout was the major-league leading 13th of the year for the Brewers.

Cravy (0-3) allowed eight hits, six runs and two walks to go along with four strikeouts.  Cravy held the Cardinals in check on June 2 in St. Louis, allowing one earned run on four hits with a walk and six strikeouts.

Lance Lynn allowed six hits and four walks in six shutout innings to improve to 9-6.

Shane Peterson finished with three of the Brewers six hits.

Kyle Lohse, who was moved to the bullpen, pitched the eighth and ninth innings.  It was his first relief appearance since Sept. 8, 2009 when he was pitching for the Cardinals against the Brewers.
