Sept. 8, 2012 at 11:56 PM   |   Comments

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Mike Fiers pitched five innings to earn a victory and knocked in a key run Saturday in the Milwaukee Brewers' 6-3 win over St. Louis.

Fiers (9-7) held the Cardinals to one run on five hits, worked around three walks and struck out five for Milwaukee, which clinched its three-game series.

His run-scoring single in the second inning followed an RBI by Carlos Gomez and staked the Brewers to a 2-0 lead, which they never surrendered.

Milwaukee's bullpen combined to limit St. Louis to two runs over four innings and John Axford picked up his 27th save.

Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a solo homer, while Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy also provided a trio of hits each as the Brewers banged out 15 hits in all.

Jake Westbrook (13-11) absorbed the loss, surrendering three runs on seven hits over five complete innings for St. Louis, which saw its lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers for a National League wild card spot shrink to one-half game.

Skip Schumaker, David Descalso and Adron Chambers drove in runs for the Cardinals.
