MLB: Milwaukee 3, St. Louis 2

July 18, 2012 at 2:08 AM   |   Comments

MILWAUKEE, July 18 (UPI) -- Francisco Rodriguez worked out of a ninth-inning jam to notch his second save of the season Tuesday and the Milwaukee Brewers held off St. Louis 3-2.

Rodriguez put runners at the corners in the top of the ninth but set down the next three batters, including a strikeout of Skip Schumacher, to record his 293rd career save and give the Brewers their fifth win in their last 10 games.

Rodriguez preserved the win for Randy Wolf (3-6), who allowed two runs on eight hits and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings.

Rickie Weeks had a solo home run. Brewers slugger Ryan Braun left the game in the seventh inning with a strained right thigh.

St. Louis lost Matt Holiday for the remainder of the game when he was hit in the left knee by a pitch from Wolf in the first inning. Holiday's 15-game hitting streak remained intact because he did not complete an official at-bat.

Joe Kelly (1-2) took the loss, surrendering three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and a walk for the Cardinals, who have dropped four of their last five games.
