Lynn, Cardinals snap Brewers' 9-game win streak


MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Lance Lynn struck out 11 in seven innings, Jon Jay hit a
three-run homer and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Milwaukee Brewers'
nine-game winning streak with a 4-0 victory Monday night.

Lynn allowed three hits over seven innings before Carlos Martinez finished off
the surprising Brewers, who still have the majors' best record at 10-3. Lynn
frustrated hitters by mixing a fastball that topped 95 mph with a slider.

Jhonny Peralta hit a solo shot in the second off Brewers starter Matt Garza
(0-2) before Jay tagged a ball over the wall near the right field corner in the
sixth.

Game two of the series is Tuesday night. Shelby Miller (0-2) starts for the
Cardials while the Brewers counter with Marco Estrada (1-0). Game time is 7:10
with the pre-game at 6:35 on KTLO-AM.
