Cardinals 4, Brewers 3: Gagne Gets a Night Off



A day after royally blowing a save to the Reds, the Brewers (11-8) gave Eric Gagne the night off and instead turned to Derick Turnbow (0-1) to face the Cardinals (13-7) with a tied game in the top of the ninth.

Turnbow did slightly better than Gagne the day before, only Turnbow doesn’t have the four-days-in-a-row of pitching excuse. Brian Barton lead off the inning with a double and score an out later on Skip Schumaker’s hit.

Ryan Franklin (1-1) picks up the vulture win after having blown the save, and Jason Isringhausen (S 7) got the actual save.

The two face again Tuesday at 1:05pm EDT. Kyle Lohse faces Manny Parra.CA
