Milwaukee, April 21, 2024 – Owen Miller’s clutch two-run single and Colin Rea’s five shutout innings propelled the Milwaukee Brewers to a 2-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, securing a series sweep.

In a tense pitching battle, Rea showcased his prowess while Sonny Gray of the Cardinals notched an impressive 12 strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. However, it was Miller’s timely hit that broke the scoreless deadlock.

Milwaukee’s triumph marks their first three-game series sweep in St. Louis since September 2018, extending their winning streak to four games.

Despite Gray’s strong performance, allowing only two runs and five hits, the Cardinals suffered their fourth consecutive loss.

Bryan Hudson, hailing from nearby Alton, Illinois, made a significant impact in relief, retiring all seven batters he faced and earning his inaugural career win. His stellar performance was witnessed by a supportive crowd of family and friends, reflecting his deep roots in the area.

Meanwhile, St. Louis catcher Willson Contreras continued his impressive hitting streak, extending it to 14 games with a first-inning single, positioning himself as a key offensive force for the Cardinals.

Looking ahead, St. Louis prepares to face the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game series starting Monday, aiming to reverse their recent fortunes.
