Brewers Beat St. Louis to Avoid Sweep
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Casey McGehee hit a two-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Thursday afternoon to avoid a three-game sweep.

Manny Parra settled down after a slow start and pitched into the seventh inning for Milwaukee, which has won four of six. Parra (10-10) allowed two runs and five hits in 6 1-3 innings.

McGehee homered for the second time in three games and finished with nine RBIs in the series. He also drove in the Brewers' first run with a sacrifice fly in the fourth.

John Smoltz (1-1), making his third start for the Cardinals, allowed four runs and six hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked none.
