ST. LOUIS, MO (WHBL) - Khris Davis belted a run-scoring triple in the 12th-inning last night, to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 5-3 victory at Saint Louis. Two pitches before that, Jonathan Lucroy was on third when Davis flied down the left field line. Cardinals' outfielder Matt Holliday made a heads-up play when he let the ball drop in foul territory, so Lucroy couldn't score on a sacrifice fly. Davis broke the tie game soon after, with his three-bagger into the right field corner. Mark Reynolds hit a sacrifice fly to give Milwaukee its two-run victory margin, after the Crew overcame a 3-0 deficit with three runs in the seventh to tie it. Seth Maness took the loss in relief. He's 0-2. Zach Duke got the win, giving up a hit and a pair of walks in two scoreless innings. Duke is now 2-0. Francisco Rodriguez earned his 12th save. Yovani Gallardo had a quality start for the Crew, giving up three runs on seven hits in six innings. The Brewers were again without the injured Ryan Braun and Jean Segura. Also, Aramis Ramirez left in the seventh inning with a bruised left elbow after he was hit by a pitch from Cardinals' reliever and Madison native Pat Neshek. X-rays were negative, and Ramirez is day-to-day. The Brewers will play the Cardinals again tonight at Busch Stadium. Right-hander Kyle Lohse faces Redbirds' righty Lance Lynn.
