Estrada wild, Brewers lose 10-1 to CardinalsSubmitted: 05/05/2013
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke put it very bluntly after his team lost 10-1 Sunday to the St. Louis Cardinals.

It was the Cardinals' first four-game sweep of the Brewers, Coming into the series, the Brewers trailed the first-place Cardinals by 1 { games in the National League Central. Following the win on Sunday, the Cardinals' lead jumped to 5 1/2 games.

``We played a bad series,'' he said. ``We don't do it too often at home.''

Marco Estrada (2-2) lasted 3 1-3 innings for the Brewers, who have lost five in a row. He gave up eight runs on six hits and had a career high six walks.


Estrada said it was likely the worst outing of his big league career.

``I had no idea where the ball was going,'' he said. ``I made a lot of pitches in the second inning. I couldn't find it after that. It was one of those outings where I had no clue what I was doing out there.''

Allen Craig drive in four runs and Matt Holliday homered for the Cardinals, who have won six straight, their most since taking eight in a row from July 11-21, 2010. It was the first time the Cardinals have four in a row from the Brewers, who moved to the NL and have been in the Cardinals' division since the 1998 season.

``It makes it awfully tough when you try to get out a big league hitter and a very good club that we are facing when you can't throw the ball where you want to,'' Roenicke said.
