Brewers 32 Inning Scoring Drought Ends

Brewers 32 Inning Scoring Drought Ends

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Jonathan Lucroy hit a solo home run in the 10th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied past the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Sunday and avoided a sweep at Busch Stadium.

The Brewers trailed 3-0 when Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer off reliever Trevor Rosenthal with no outs in the eighth.

Braun's second home run of the season snapped a 39-inning shutout streak for St. Louis pitchers. It also broke a club-record 32-inning scoreless string for the Brewers, who had not scored since the second inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

Milwaukee tied it in the ninth on a leadoff single by Carlos Gomez and an RBI double by Yuniesky Betancourt off Mitchell Boggs.

THE BREWERS RETURN TO MILLER PARK ON TUESDAY TO HOST THE  SAN FRANSISCO GIANTS.  PREGAME COVERAGE BEGINS AT 6:35P, WITH FIRST PITCH AT 7:05P  0N NEWSTALK 1310 WIBA AM
