3:54p Well, here’s some pretty good news for the Brewers. The Cardinals lost to the Rays today, 8-3. It was a pretty tight game until the 8th inning, when the Rays finally put the game away on Johnny Damon’s base-clearing triple. The Cards couldn’t muster up much against Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson, and even though Yadier Molina and Lance Berkman both homered, Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse could not hold down the Rays.
So, if the Brewers can take down Matt Capps in the 9th inning again today, they will have first place all to themselves for the time being. If not, they’ll remain tied with the Cards in first.
