The Milwaukee Brewers rely again on the long ball, as they beat Saint Louis 7-5 at home on Thursday night.
Travis Shaw hit a three run blast, and Eric Thames and Jett Bandy each had two run shots. It was the third straight game in which Shaw and Bandy went yard, giving Milwaukee a Major League leading 32 home runs this season.
Zach Davies got the win despite giving up four runs in five and one third innings, improving to 1-2, and Jacob Barnes picked up his first save as Carlos Martinez took the loss for Saint Louis.
Jedd Gyorko fell one triple short of the cycle and Matt Carpenter also homered. Game Two of the series between the Brewers and Cardinals is tonight (Friday) at Miller Park.
