|Cards Use Extra Innings to Beat Brewers
|ST. LOUIS (AP) --Colby Rasmus singled home the winning run in the 11th inning to lift the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 vitory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
Newly acquired Aaron Miles singled with one out in the 11th and advanced to second on Yadier Molina's base hit to center. Rasmus, who had three hits and three RBIs, laced a shot just in front of outfielder Jim Edmonds. Edmonds held on to the ball with Miles already around third.
The Brewers failed to take advantage with two on and one out in the 11th. Edmonds opened the inning with a double. An error on Miles allowed George Kottaras to reach first, but Mitchell Boggs got Carlos Gomez to fly out, and Rickie Weeks grounded out to end the inning.
Boggs (1-2) pitched one inning to earn the victory.
John Axford (1-1) took the loss.
