Brewers shut down Cardinals 1-0

Posted: Updated:

Mike Fiers and four relievers combined on an eight-hitter and Carlos Gomez had a first-inning RBI single in the Milwaukee Brewers' 1-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.

Fiers (2-5) allowed four hits in six innings, one shy of his season high, and won for the first time in six starts since May 2 at Chicago.

Johnathan Broxton, Neal Cotts, James Jeffress and Francisco Rodriguez combined to allow four hits without walking a batter in Milwaukee's fourth shutout of the season. Rodriguez finished for his ninth save.

The win comes a day after the Brewers beat Arizona in 17 innings.

Jaime Garcia (1-2) worked seven sterling innings and Kolten Wong and Mark Reynolds had two singles apiece for the Cardinals, shut out for the fifth time but first time at home where they're among the best in the league at 20-7.
