Walk Off Home Run Beats Cardinals
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Casey McGehee homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to an 8-7 victory over St. Louis after the Cardinals rallied against closer Trevor Hoffman Sunday night.

Hoffman was protecting a 7-4 lead with two outs in the top of the ninth when baseball's career saves leader unraveled for the second straight appearance. Albert Pujols hit his second two-run homer of the game to cut the lead to one, and Matt Holliday followed with a tying shot.

But McGehee connected off Kyle McClellan (0-1) with one out in the bottom half to give Hoffman (1-1) an unlikely victory and help the Brewers avoid a three-game sweep after they tagged Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter for three homers and seven runs.
