Recap: Milwaukee vs. St. Louis

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and Carlos Beltran added a solo shot as the St. Louis Cardinals downed the Milwaukee Brewers, 6-1, on Friday.

Jon Jay went 2-for-3 with two RBI and Yadier Molina added a pair of hits and a run scored for the Cardinals, winners in four straight.

Shelby Miller (4-2) allowed one run on seven hits over six frames to earn the win.

"He controlled the counts and made them put the ball in play for our defense. He was very effective and made some nice adjustments since the first time he faced them," said Cardinals manager Mike Matheny.

Jonathan Lucroy had an RBI and Ryan Braun had two hits and scored a run for the Brewers, losers in three straight. Third baseman Aramis Ramirez returned to the lineup following a month-long absence because of a knee injury. He went 2-for-3.

"I did more than I expected. I felt good on the bases. I am glad with the way I did play, and the way my knee held up tonight. I hope things just keep getting better," Ramirez said.

Kyle Lohse (1-3) was tagged for four runs on 11 hits over five innings to absorb the loss.

Holliday gave St. Louis a 2-0 edge with his homer in the third inning. Matt Carpenter doubled then scored when Holliday crushed a 3-2 sinker off the scoreboard over the center field.

The Cardinals added two more in the fifth as Jay roped a double to left field to score Holliday and Molina.

Milwaukee finally got on the board in the sixth inning. Braun singled to right then moved to second on a Ramirez base hit. After Rickie Weeks walked to load the bases, Lucroy lifted a sacrifice fly to center score Braun.

In the seventh, Beltran smacked a leadoff homer to right center, and Holliday scored on a passed ball later in the frame.
