ST. LOUIS, March 31 (UPI) -- Kerry Robinson's two-out bunt single drove in the go-ahead run and Scott Rolen's three-run homer capped a six-run, eighth-inning rally Monday as the St. Louis Cardinals posted an 11-9 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

St. Louis began the eighth trailing 7-5 but Orlando Palmeiro tripled home a run and scored on Fernando Vina's double, knotting the score. A passed ball moved Vina to third and Robinson followed by dropping a bunt down the first base line for a single.

Albert Pujols was walked intentionally, Rolen drove the first pitch he saw from Mike DeJean (0-1) 421 feet over the wall in left field for an 11-7 lead.

St. Louis' Russ Springer (1-0) allowed a solo homer to Eddie Perez - the catcher's first homer since 1999 -but struck out two in the eighth.

Richie Sexson's two-run shot in the ninth pulled Milwaukee within 11-9 but the Brewers could not complete the rally and lost for the eighth time in their last 11 games at Busch Stadium.
