MILWAUKEE, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Matt Carpenter's RBI single during an eighth-inning rally put St. Louis ahead Monday and the Cardinals went on to an 8-5 win over Milwaukee.

St. Louis trailed 5-4 entering the eighth but erupted for four runs to grab control of the game.

With the bases loaded, pinch-hitter Matt Adams grounded a pitch from Brandon Kintzler (3-1) into right field, scoring Kolten Wong with the tying run.

Carpenter then delivered the key blow, chasing home David Descalso with a ground single to left, and David Freese capped the outburst with a two-run double off Bruce Badenhop.

Yadier Molina went 4-for-5 with an RBI, Jon Jay stroked a two-run homer and Carlos Beltran provided three hits, including a bases-empty homer, as second-place St. Louis kept the pressure on National League Central-leading Pittsburgh.

The Cardinals trailed the Pirates by one game coming into the contest.

Michael Wacha (2-0) earned the decision despite blowing a save in the sixth and Edward Mujica picked up his 32nd save for St. Louis.

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-5 with two RBI while Aramis Ramirez and Norichika Aoki each homered for the Brewers.
