The Milwaukee Brewers split their day/night doubleheader at Saint Louis, losing the opener 6-0 and winning the nightcap 8-5.

Brent Suter took the loss in Game One, giving up three runs in five and two thirds innings after Brandon Woodruff tightened his right hamstring in the warmups and could not make his big league debut. The Brewers' offense only had six singles as Lance Lynn got the win -- and Jose Martinez homered twice for the Redbirds. In the evening's Game Two, it was tied 5-5 in the eighth when Milwaukee scored three runs to win it with R-B-I singles from Travis Shaw and Manny Pina, and a sacrifice fly by Keon Broxton after Shaw, Broxton, and Jesus Aguilar all hit solo homers earlier in the contest. Jared Hughes won Game Two in relief, improving to 2-1 as the Brewers ended the night with a one game lead on the second place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central -- with Saint Louis moving into third place at two and one half games back.
