Sept. 13, 2013 at 12:31 AM

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A two-run homer by Sean Halton staked Milwaukee to an early four-run lead Thursday and the Brewers went on to fight off St. Louis 5-3.

The Cardinals had a five-game winning streak snapped and they fell back into a tie with Pittsburgh for the lead in the National League Central.

Tyler Thornburg (2-1) gave up two runs on three hits in six innings while striking out six to help salvage the last of a three-game series. Jim Henderson came on in the ninth to protect a three-run lead and allowed a solo homer by Matt Adams on the way to his 25th save.

Halton's homer in the fourth came after Carlos Gomez had singled to open the inning and gave Milwaukee a 4-0 cushion.

The loss went to Joe Kelly (8-4), who surrendered four runs on seven hits in five innings.
