Brew Crew Can't Sweep Cards



Milwaukee was trying to sweep the series after beating 16-game winner Mark Mulder on Saturday, one day after roughing up 21-game winner Chris Carpenter in a 9-6 win.

"The way Milwaukee has been swinging, a performance like that by Suppan is off the charts," Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said. "He did a great job of moving the ball around, changing speeds."

Milwaukee (77-78) is trying to finish with a winning record for the first time since 1992, when the Brewers were in the American League.

Doug Davis (11-11) faced the Cardinals for the fifth time this season and remained winless against them. He is 0-4 with a 5.48 ERA against St. Louis after allowing four hits and striking out seven in eight innings.

"I got outpitched today," Davis said. "You can't win when the other pitcher throws a shutout."
Davis retired eight of the first nine Cardinals before Edmonds tripled to lead off the fourth. After Albert Pujols walked, Reggie Sanders hit a sacrifice fly for the first run of the game.

"He was dead on," Brewers manager Ned Yost said of Davis' effort. "It just seems like when he pitches we match up with a pitcher who has a great day."
