MILWAUKEE, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Lance Lynn went 6 1/3 innings to get the win and the St. Louis Cardinals moved to the brink of a division title Saturday with a 7-2 spanking of Milwaukee.

Lynn (14-10) yielded one run on four hits, overcoming four walks while striking out seven for National League Central-leading St. Louis, which reduced its magic number for winning a division crown to one.

Matt Adams smacked a two-run homer in the first inning and the Cards never trailed.

David Freese and Daniel Descalso each added two RBI for St. Louis.

Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo (11-10) was saddled with the loss despite yielding just two runs on four hits in seven innings.

Khris Davis knocked in both Milwaukee runs.
