ST. LOUIS -

Matt Adams had a two-run home run and the Cardinals broke open a tight game with four in the eighth to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 on Wednesday night.

The Cardinals won their fifth consecutive game to maintain a one-game lead over Pittsburgh and a three-game advantage on Cincinnati in the NL Central.

The Pirates finished a three-game sweep at Texas and the Reds knocked off the Chicago Cubs earlier in the day.

Milwaukee has lost three of five.

Brandon Kintzler (3-2) gave up three runs on two hits and a walk while only getting two outs.

Carlos Beltran's sacrifice fly off Michael Gonzalez scored Matt Carpenter to give the Cardinals a 2-1 lead.

An error by catcher Jonathan Lucroy allowed Jon Jay to score and Adams followed with his 12th homer of the season.

Trevor Rosenthal (2-3) had a hitless eighth inning for the win.
