|Lohse Pitches Cardinals to Win Over Brewers
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Kyle Lohse pitched six spotless innings to earn his 12th win and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-0 on Sunday night for a three-game sweep.
Daniel Descalso had a season-high three hits for the Cardinals, who have won five of six and 12 of 16. It was their first three-game sweep at home against the Brewers since March 31 to April 3, 2003.
Milwaukee has lost its last nine road games.
Lohse (12-2) allowed four hits while throwing 100 pitches. He struck out six and walked three.
The Cardinals wore 1982 powder blue replica uniforms in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their World Series win over Milwaukee. Back then, the Brewers were in the American League.
