|Cardinals' Bullpen Ruins Wainwright's Bid for 20th Win
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright's hope for a 20th victory unraveled along with the St. Louis bullpen and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied for a 12-6 win Friday night.
Ryan Braun doubled twice to leave him one hit short of 200 and drove in the tying run before scoring the go-ahead one in Milwaukee's six-run seventh inning.
Wainwright retired 15 in a row before consecutive one-out doubles by Craig Counsell and Braun cut the deficit to 6-1 in the sixth, and was pulled after allowing singles to Jody Gerut and Alcides Escobar to start the seventh.
Kyle McClellan (4-4) gave up Braun's tying, two-run double in the seventh before Jason Motte's wild pitch put Milwaukee ahead 7-6.
Braden Looper (14-7) allowed six runs on 10 hits in six innings for Milwaukee, which ended a four-game losing streak.
