MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Brewers open a series at home against Cincinnati tonight.
The series comes after they were swept in three games at Miller Park by the charging St. Louis Cardinals.
Adam Wainwright gave up two hits in seven scoreless innings and Yadier Molina put on a rare power display with two homers to lead the Cardinals to yesteday's 8-0 victory.
The win closed the Cardinals to within two and a half games of the Central Division lead for the first time since April 20.
The Brewers were swept at home for the first time since Florida took three games at Miller Park last September.
Milwaukee has been swept on the road twice this year, at San Diego in May and at Colorado last week.
The Cardinals outscored the Brewers 28-7 in the series.
The Brewers have lost 13 of their last 18 games.
