Braun 350th career HR, later plunked; Brewers, Cards split DH
By JIM HOEHN Associated Press
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Brent Suter and three relievers combined on a two-hitter and Ryan Braun hit his 350th career homer, leading the Milwaukee Brewers over the St. Louis Cardinals 6-0 for a doubleheader split.
The Cardinals took the opener 4-2 behind Adam Wainwright's four-hitter.
Cardinals manager Mike Shildt ran the team in the opener. He missed the nightcap while serving a one-game suspension, imposed by Major League Baseball after tempers flared during the Brewers' 18-3 romp Tuesday night. Umpires warned both teams after Braun was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning.
He was at the center of the trouble the previous night when he hit Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina in the wrist during a swing.
