Cardinals Rally in 9th, Beat Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Allen Craig hit a bloop RBI single off Brewers closer John Axford to take the lead, and the St. Louis Cardinals rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 on Monday night.
Milwaukee was leading 2-0 going into the ninth but Axford struggled with his control right away, eventually loading the bases with two outs and giving up a game-tying, two-run single to Matt Holliday.
Axford (2-6) then was lifted after giving up the single to Craig, which dropped softly into shallow left field. Axford left the game to a steady stream of boos from the crowd.
Axford's sloppy inning wasted another strong performance by Brewers starter Mike Fiers, who pitched seven scoreless innings.
Jason Motte (4-3) claimed the win.
