Arcia returns in time to lead Brewers past Cardinals 3-2

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -

Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia had a whirlwind day. The team recalled him from Triple-A to take the roster spot of the injured Tyler Saladino. Arcia entered his first game back in the big leagues in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter and promptly delivered the go-ahead hit as the Brewers beat the Cardinals 3-2.

Junior Guerra posted a good start for Milwaukee. He threw six scoreless innings and only allowed four hits with seven strikeouts. Things didn't go as well for Jeremy Jeffress. He allowed two runs, only one of them earned, in the seventh inning. Harrison Bader hit a home run and Tommy Pham added a sacrifice fly.

So, St. Louis had a 2-1 lead when Christian Yelich tied it up with a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning. Yelich also drove in a run in the fifth on a fielder's choice.

Arcia then followed that up with his game-winning single in the bottom of the seventh for the final score of 3-2.

Josh Hader came on to throw 1.2 scoreless innings before Corey Knebel finished it off by getting the final out.

Milwaukee set a team record for wins in May with a 19-8 month.
