Cardinals Complete First Four-Game Sweep of the Brewers

St. Louis beats Milwaukee 10-1 on Sunday, the Brewers 5th consecutive loss.
It wasn't Marco Estrada's day and it wasn't the Brewers' week. Estrada lasted 3 1/3 innings, giving up eight runs on six hits. He also had a career high six walks. Milwaukee gave their nemesis too big of a lead to battle back from. The Cardinals completed their first-ever four-game series against the Brewers.

"Just one of those outings where I had no clue what I was doing up there. Felt lost, just a bad outing, that's all it is," Marco Estrada said. "I had no feel for the ball, I just couldn't locate, wasn't throwing the pitches where I wanted to throw them and obviously you think about stuff like that and like I said you try not to, you try to just forget about the last pitch and go after the next one and it's just one of those things where I just couldn't find it. You know I wanted to go out and just give it my best today and not being able to do that today it just kills me right now."

"Our pitching certainly needs to get us deeper in games, we need to command the ball a lot better than what we did. They are a good hitting club and you can't get behind in the counts on them," Ron Roenicke explained.

"Traditionally we haven't had a lot of success against the Cardinals, ever since 2011. We just gotta get back on track, forget about this series and move on," Jonathan Lucroy weighed in.

"It's tough to lose four games at home the way we usually play here. Against a good club we knew that we had to play good baseball and we didn't we played good baseball for two games," said Roenicke.

The Skipper decided to use the final two innings to give his reserves some playing time. The Brewers will use Tuesday's game off to get rejuvenated mentally, then attempt to snap that five-game losing skid on Tuesday against the Texas Rangers.
