Cards Rough Up Galladro, Beat Brewers
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer and Yovani Gallardo struggled in his first outing since signing a big contract extension with the Milwaukee Brewers, giving up six runs in five innings in the St. Louis Cardinals' 7-1 victory Saturday.

Jaime Garcia (1-0) was sharp in his debut as the Cardinals' No. 5 starter, giving up a run and four hits in six innings. Colby Rasmus homered and Albert Pujols had a two-run single for the Cardinals, who took the first two games of a three-game series that concludes Sunday night.

Brewers sluggers Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder went a combined 0-for-8, including three strikeouts by Fielder. Gallardo (0-2) was roughed up in the second and fifth innings, retiring 10 straight batters in between.

The Cardinals play Milwaukee again Sunday night. Hear the broadcast beginning at 6:22pm on AM 1400 WGIL.
