ST. LOUIS, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Kyle Lohse and three Cardinals relievers combined for a six-hit shutout Sunday and St. Louis completed a three-game sweep of Milwaukee with a 3-0 victory.

Lohse (12-2) extended his unbeaten streak to nine starts, scattering four hits over six scoreless frames while walking three and striking out six.

Edward Mujica and Mitchell Boggs each shut the Brewers down for an inning and Jason Motte finished with his 24th save as the Cards won for the fifth time in six contests overall.

David Descalso went 3-for-4 with a run-scoring triple, while Allen Craig and David Freese also contributed RBI for St. Louis.

Marco Estrada (0-5) pitched well but absorbed the loss, allowing only one run on seven hits over six frames for Milwaukee.
