April 29, 2012 at 6:05 PM

ST. LOUIS, April 29 (UPI) -- Jonathan Lucroy smacked a go-ahead, two-run double in the sixth inning Sunday and Milwaukee survived a late challenge to best St. Louis 3-2.

Trailing 1-0 in the sixth, the Brewers scored three times to take the lead.

Carlos Gomez hit a lead-off single, went to second on a fielder's choice and scored one out later on an Aramis Ramirez single, forging a 1-1 tie.

Following Corey Hart's single, Lucroy blasted a 2-0 pitch from Jamie Garcia (2-1) off the top of the left field wall, scoring a pair of runs.

Zack Greinke (3-1) earned the win with six innings of one-run ball, overcoming four walks.

John Axford nailed down the save in the ninth when the Cardinals' Tyler was thrown out at home on a broken play to end the game as the Brewers avoided a three-game sweep.

Garcia ended up yielding three runs on nine hits over seven frames, walking one and striking out six.

Rafael Furcal had two hits and an RBI for National League Central-leading Cardinals.
