04/26 17:00 CDT Lind homers, Brewers beat Cardinals for 2nd win in 12 games Lind homers, Brewers beat Cardinals for 2nd win in 12 games By JIM HOEHN Associated Press MILWAUKEE (AP) --- Adam Lind hit a two-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 Sunday for just their second victory in the last 12 games. Milwaukee, off to the worst start in team history, improved to 4-15. Every other team in the majors has at least six wins. The Cardinals had won nine of 10. They headed back to St. Louis, where ace Adam Wainwright will have an MRI on Monday to see how long his injured Achilles and left ankle will sideline him --- there is speculation he could miss the rest of the season. St. Louis got 13 hits, but stranded a season-high 14 runners, including eight in the first three innings. Mike Blazek (1-0) pitched two innings for the victory. Starter Mike Fiers gave up one earned run on nine hits and two walks in four-plus innings. Lance Lynn (1-2) allowed six runs on 10 hits in five innings. The Brewers took a 3-0 lead in third after Logan Schafer reached on infield single that bounced off the back of Lynn and Gerardo Parra tripled. Cardinals right fielder Jason Heyward appeared to stumble on Parra's hit and left the game with left groin tightness, and was listed as day to day. Lind then hit his third homer. The Cardinals got a run back in the fourth when Jon Jay, who replaced Heyward, singled with two outs. Jay moved up when Lind mishandled a pickoff throw and scored on Jhonny Peralta's single. Mark Reynolds, who played last season for Milwaukee, cut the lead to 3-2 with his first home run to lead off the fifth, chasing Fiers. The Brewers scored three times in the bottom half on doubles by Parra, Khris Davis and Elian Herrera, and an RBI single by Hector Gomez. Catcher Cody Stanley, called up from Triple-A to take Wainwright's roster spot, made his major League debut as a pinch hitter to lead off the eighth and singled. He later scored on Matt Adams' bases-loaded grounder. TRAINER'S ROOM Cardinals: C Yadier Molina was out of the lineup for the second straight day as he recovers from getting hit by a foul tip on Friday. "He's feeling better, even though we just need to go ahead and take at least another day," manager Mike Matheny said. "He can hit, he can run, but squatting is the major issue right now." Brewers: CF Carlos Gomez is getting closer to ready to play when he's eligible to come off the 15-day DL. "(Gomez) was really good running bases yesterday," manager Ron Roenicke said. "He is taking flyballs. He is doing all the things I think he needs to do to be ready. We will just see where the timing is. He should be close." Gomez went on the DL on April 16 with a strained right hamstring. UP NEXT Cardinals: RHP John Lackey gets the start as the Cards return home for a four-game series against Philadelphia after a six-game road trip. He is 1-0 with a 4.34 ERA in three starts. Brewers: Jimmy Nelson, 1-1 with a 1.35 ERA, will be making his fourth start to open a three-game series at Cincinnati. The 25-year-old right-hander has been one of the few bright spots this season, giving up no more than two runs in any start.
