Cardinals Split Doubleheader

Jose Martinez homered twice in the first game of the day-night doubleheader against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cardinals won the first game 6-0 as Lance Lynn picked up the win on the mound but only going five innings as he issued four walks. Martinez finished with 3 RBIs in the game as the Cardinals looked to pick up two games against the Brewers in one day. However, the second game didn’t go as planned as Keon Broxton and Travis Shaw combined for five RBIs in the night cap to pace the Brewers in an 8-5 victory. The Cardinals remain 2.5 games back of the Brewers in first place of the National League Central. The two teams will play two more games this series before heading out to Baltimore to face the Orioles in an Interleague match-up starting Friday.
