MILWAUKEE, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Sean Halton drove in three runs Tuesday, including two in the decisive fourth inning of the Milwaukee Brewers' 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Halton cracked a single that drove in two of the five runs the Brewers hung up in the fourth and added an insurance RBI base hit in the fifth.

The fourth-inning rally overcame a 2-1 St. Louis lead and set the Brewers on course to their first win at home against the Cardinals in six tries.

Kyle Lohse (9-8) earned the win over his former team with a six-inning start that included three runs on six hits.

Lance Lynn (13-7) suffered the loss after allowing six runs -- four earned -- on nine hits over six innings. The loss ended the Cardinals' three-game winning streak.

Yadier Molina had a two-rum homer for the Cards and Matt Adams singled in a run in the first inning.
