Carpenter's Single Helps Cards Rally Over Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Matt Carpenter hit an RBI single with two outs in the eighth inning, putting the St. Louis Cardinals ahead during a four-run rally Monday night in an 8-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Cardinals got seven of their 16 hits in the big inning, capped by David Freese's two-run double. St. Louis won for the ninth time in 11 games.

Aramis Ramirez snapped a 1-for-18 skid since returning from the disabled list Aug. 13 with a two-run homer off Michael Wacha (2-0) in the seventh to give the Brewers a 5-4 lead.

It didn't last long. The Cardinals erupted in the eighth off reliever Brandon Kintzler (3-1).

Edward Mujica, who was unavailable during the weekend series at the Chicago Cubs because of a tired arm, pitched the ninth for his 32nd save in 34 chances.
