Brewers hit 3 HRS, beat the Cardinals 7-5

As for the Brewers, they'll be rolling out RHP Wily Peralta on Friday.

The Milwaukee Brewers opened a 10-game home stand with a 7-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park on Thursday night.

All seven of the Brewers' runs came in on home run hits from Travis Shaw (his fifth), Eric Thames (his eighth), and Jett Bandy (his fourth). The Brewers blew leads in each of their last two games as the bullpen faltered. Carlos Torres finished the inning by striking out Dexter Fowler in a marathon at-bat with two runners on to end the threat. Ryan Braun had 15 hits, 12 runs and 11 RBI in that span. Braun logged an 0-for-3 outing on Thursday, but Thames slapped a homer with two RBI and two runs.

Eric Thames homered yet again for the Milwaukee Brewers in Major League Baseball, while Chris Sale was strong for the Boston Red Sox.

While the Brewers were launching long balls, nobody could score in Thursday's game between the Royals and Rangers in Arlington.

Chris Sale may have taken a no-decision in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jays, but the new Red Sox ace was still strong. Last December's trade with the Chicago White Sox continues to pay off for Boston. Starting Milwaukee pitcher Zach Davies got his first win of the year, allowing four runs off of eight hits. Sale is 1-1 in four starts with a 0.91 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings.

Royals batters struck out 14 times against the Rangers. It was Shaw's 4th home run in the past 5 games, and his third straight game visiting his home district of Ding Dong City.
