Question of the Day
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Lyle Overbay singled in Khris Davis with the tiebreaking run and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals in extra innings for the second straight night, winning 5-4 in 11 innings Tuesday.
Davis hit a go-ahead triple to help the Brewers win 5-3 in 12 innings Monday and started the winning rally this time with a leadoff double against Kevin Siegrist (0-1). Milwaukee is a major league-best 20-7, two more victories than the previous franchise best for the opening month, and 11-1 on the road.
Carlos Gomez homered and pitcher Kyle Lohse had a two-run single for the Brewers, who have won five of six. Tyler Thornburg (3-0) struck out four in two scoreless innings and Francisco Rodriguez finished for his 13th save in 13 chances.
Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer in the first and Allen Craig’s RBI triple tied it in the seventh for the Cardinals, who have lost three of four.
MARLINS 9, BRAVES 0
MIAMI (AP) - Jose Fernandez allowed two hits in eight stellar innings, Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer and Miami opened a homestand by routing Atlanta.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia also homered. Second baseman Ed Lucas had three hits in his season debut after recovering from a broken left hand, and Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run single for the Marlins.
Fernandez (4-1) was dominant against the NL East leaders again, lowering his ERA to 1.59. He struck out eight and walked two.
Braves starter Alex Wood (2-4) allowed seven runs and 10 hits in five-plus innings.
Fernandez beat Wood 1-0 last Tuesday when the two pitchers combined for 25 strikeouts and no walks.
