Ramirez later left the game and is considered day to day.

Khris Davis' RBI triple gave the Brewers the lead in the 12th. Zach Duke picked up the win after throwing two innings of scoreless relief. Francisco Rodriguez retired the Cardinals in the 12th for the save.

The Brewers are 10-1 on the road this season.
