ST. LOUIS (AP) — Corbin Burnes took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and Kolten Wong had three hits and was hit by a pitch against his for- mer team as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-0 Tuesday night.
Burnes (8-4) allowed two hits and two walks and had three strikeouts in six innings of work. He is 6-0 in his last 13 starts and has not lost since May 25, against San Diego.
Brad Boxberger and Devin Williams each pitched an inning of relief before Josh Hader pitched the ninth inning to earn his 24th save in 25 chances.
Milwaukee is 41-20 on the road this season and 16-2 in its last 18 games away from American Family Field.
Adam Wainwright (11-7) allowed just two runs in six innings despite surrendering nine hits and two walks.
“That’s baseball,” Wainwright said. “Sometimes those same pitches, same balls get hits and go right to somebody and you’re a hero. And sometimes they don’t and you’re the goat, you’re the loser.”
The loss snaps a six-game winning streak for the Cardinals and a four-start winning streak for Wainwright. This game marked the first of 13 over the season’s last seven weeks between the Brewers and Cardinals, who sit 11 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central, but four behind San Diego for the second wild card spot.
Wong put Milwaukee up 1- 0 with a two out bloop double to left field that fell between Tyler O’Neill, Nolan Arenado, and Edmundo Sosa, scoring Rowdy Telez in the top of the second inning.
Omar Narvez drove in Christian Yelich with a dou- ble down the right field line to push the lead to 2-0.
Tommy Edman broke up Burnes’ no-hit bid with a single to left field in the fifth inning. Paul Goldschmidt followed with a single to center field moving Edman to third. Burnes then got Nolan Arenado and Tyler O’Neill to pop out in foul territory to end the threat and the inning.
Wainwright’s outing was his 350th career start mak- ing him the 22nd player in MLB history to make at least 350 starts with one fran- chise. Jesse Haines, Bob Gibson, and Bob Forsch also accomplished the feat with the Cardinals.
Brewers RHP Freddy Peralta (9-3, 2.26 ERA) has a 1.85 ERA over his last 15 starts. He will oppose Cardinals RHP Jack Flaherty (9-1, 2.65 ERA) who is 3-6 with a 5.21 ERA in 13 career starts against Milwaukee.
