FLUSHING NY- MAY 29 Milwaukee Brewers Starting pitcher Matt Garza on the mound during a regular season MLB game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the New York Mets

He earned some more Tuesday afternoon.

Martinez connected in the fifth and eighth innings for his first multi-homer game.

At this point, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny brought in righthanded rookie John Brebbia for his second stint during the day-night doubleheader. You can read my breakdown of his rest of season value, and whether I think the impressive control-strikeout combo from his last few starts will stick right here.

After the Cardinals and Jose Martinez took a commanding hold of game one, our second installment had different plans in what turned out to be a back and forth slugfest.

"When you're not playing, you've got to be ready for every opportunity", Martinez said.

Jumping out to a quick 2-0 lead on RBIs by Jose Martinez (0-for-3, RBI, BB, 2 Ks) and Matt Carpenter (3-for-5 HR, 2B, 2 RBI), Gonzales' line through three innings was encouraging - 3 IP, 2 H, 2 K, 1 HR.

Matt Carpenter homered, doubled and singled for the Cardinals, with his homer tying the score in the seventh. We knew this going in and I knew that she was going to have to have surgery. He walked the first two batters he faced and then allowed two singles to the bottom of the Brewers order, showing his lack of command at a time when the exact opposite would've been appreciated. After the rough first two innings, Nelson worked through the next three with no damage, aided by two double plays.

"They were all grinding out at-bats, making the pitchers work", Counsell said. "There wasn't too many hard hit balls either". Timing I guess. I just try to keep things as simple as possible. Garza hasn't pitched since June 3, when he left a 10-8 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers after four innings following a collision at first base with Aguilar that resulted in a chest contusion. Three of the five hits he gave up were homers.

Lefty Brent Suter, recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs as the Brewers' 26th man for the doubleheader, got the surprise start after right-hander Brandon Woodruff had his major league debut postponed during warm-ups because of right hamstring soreness. In four prior stints with Milwaukee this year, Suter was 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA in 7 1/3 innings. He also recorded his first major league hit with a single to left in the top of the fifth inning. "We talk about unsafe hitters, I think you put him in that category". It turns out it kind of was bad news Woody went down. After salvaging an out, Manny Pina proceeded to double, followed by a Broxton triple that I still can't fathom how Bush Stadium kept within its walls.

Lewis Brinson legged out his first major league hit in the nightcap when Greg Garcia couldn't bare-hand his slow roller down the third base line in the third. It was his first hit since June 27, 2010 at Los Angeles, marking the eighth-longest streak between hits since 2000. The Brewers' bats had other plans. RHP Rob Scahill was designated for assignment and OF Brett Phillips was optioned to Colorado Springs.

Brewers: RHP Jimmy Nelson (4-3, 3.45 ERA) has won his past two decisions. He is 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA in five career starts against St. Louis.
