Published On: Aug 20 2013 10:20:59 PM CDT

The Milwaukee Brewers scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning Tuesday night to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-3 at Miller Park.

Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse (9-8), who left St. Louis as a free agent to sign with Milwaukee in the off-season, had a quality start allowing three runs in six innings.

Sean Halton led the Brewers offense with two hits and three RBI.

Jean Segura stole his 37th base of the season.

After Yadier Molina homered in the top of the fourth to give the Cardinals a 3-1 lead, the Brewers exploded in the bottom of the fourth.

Scooter Gennett drove in Jonathan Lucroy with the first run. Halton's single drove in Aramis Ramirez and Khris Davis to tie the game at 3. Then Logan Schafer blooped a single to left to score Gennett and Nori Aoki hit a sacrifice fly to put the Brewers ahead 5-3.

Lance Lynn (13-7) took the loss for St. Louis. He allowed six runs (four earned) and nine hits in six innings of work.

The Brewers and Cardinals close out their series with an afternoon game at Miller Park Wednesday at 1:10 CT.
