Beltran Lifts Cardinals Over Brewers In 10th

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Beltran's 10th-inning sacrifice fly lifted St. Louis to a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday night and kept the Cardinals in sole possession of first place in the NL Central.
The Cardinals hold a two-game lead over Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. The Reds downed the Pirates 6-5 in 10 innings to move into a tie for second place.
Former Brewers closer John Axford (7-7 ) picked up the win, while Carlos Martinez got his first save of the year for the Cardinals.
Beltran's fly ball to deep right field off Michael Blazek (0-1) scored Kolten Wong, who led off the 10th with a walk.
Matt Adams smacked a towering two-run, ninth-inning home run to give the Cardinals a 6-4 lead, but the Brewers rallied for two runs in the bottom of the frame to tie the game.
