Cards' Wainwright has HR, 4 RBIs in first win of season

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

Jett Bandy, Eric Thames and Travis Shaw each hit home runs to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-5 on Thursday night.

Cardinals: Infielder Jhonny Peralta was put on the 10-day disabled list because of an upper respiratory condition. He leads the league in home runs. "He just wants to be in there", Matheny said.

St. Louis tacked on three runs in the fourth on an RBI double by Randal Grichuk and a bases-loaded single by Wainwright that plated a pair. Two hits and four runs batted in for the veteran pitcher.

Seung Hwan Oh picked up his third save in four tries.

"Kolten did an unbelievable athletic move to get to the plate", Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

With the Brewers short on arms in their bullpen, they recalled lefty Brent Suter from Class AAA Colorado Springs.

"Ever since we left camp, he's been dealing with some upper respiratory issues that I think they (medical staff) were trying to identify", Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. "For me, (Nieuwenhuis) was a great member of this team as far as how he went about his business and how he treated everybody".

"It does seem complicated to where he doesn't seem like he's got that power that he normally has", Matheny said.

Matt Garza will return to the Brewers rotation on Monday, making his first start of the season against the Cincinnati Reds.

The Seattle Mariners beat the Miami Marlins 6-1, the Houston Astros shut out the Los Angeles Angels 3-0 and the Cleveland Indians overcame the Minnesota Twins 3-1.

Brewers: RHP Wily Peralta (3-0, 2.65) makes his fourth start of the season and 17th overall against the Cardinals who have been tough on him.

Brewers: Chase Anderson (2-0, 1.50) will make his fourth start of the season. You've probably heard the newest as called by the Brewers TV crew or Bob Uecker, but click play in the main media slot above to hear the Korean call on MBC Sports Plus: The country where Thames got his swing back, hit 102 home runs over three years and earned the nickname "God". He'll take the place of LHP Tommy Milone, who moved into the rotation when Opening Day starter Junior Guerra suffered a calf injury after just three innings of work.
