Brewers Win 8-7

One night after defeating 21-game winner Chris Carpenter, the Milwaukee Brewers beat up on 16-game winner Mark Mulder.

Chad Moeller hit a three-run homer and Brady Clark added a two-run drive in a seven-run second inning that led Milwaukee over the St. Louis Cardinals 8-7 Saturday night.

Mulder (16-8) lasted 1 2/3 innings, the shortest of his 181 major-league starts, and allowed seven runs, seven hits and one walk. He pitched at least seven innings in each of his previous six starts, allowing no more than two earned runs.

"I don't think he had his good stuff," Moeller said. "That doesn't happen to him. His numbers prove that."

Gary Glover (4-4) made his first appearance since June 5 and his first start since May 25.
Glover, who was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sept. 20, struck out a career-high eight in six innings, matching his longest outing this year. He gave up three runs and five hits.

"That seven-run inning helped a little bit," Glover said. "It helped me relax."

Milwaukee built an 8-3 lead, then hung on.
