Late offense, Hader's 100th save push Brewers past Cards

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Tyrone Taylor hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to give Milwaukee a cushion, and the Brewers outlasted Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5.

Pujols hit his 681st career homer, a three-run shot in the third inning off Aaron Ashby that tied the game at 3.

But the Brewers regained the lead in the fourth on Willy Adames' bases-loaded walk and held on from there.

Taylor's seventh-inning double made it 6-3.

St. Louis got within one in the eighth inning against Devin Williams, but Josh Hader struck out two during a perfect ninth for his fourth save of the season and 100th of his career.
