Cardinals lose 5-4 in 13 innings to Brewers

Braun hits homer in 13th

ST. LOUIS - Lance Lynn and Carlos Beltran were National League All-Star teammates this summer.

They perhaps felt the sting of the St. Louis Cardinals' latest loss most in a game that ended nearly seven hours after the scheduled first pitch.

Ryan Braun homered off Lynn with one out in the 13th inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers outlasted the Cardinals 5-4 on Friday night. Beltran failed with runners in scoring position his first three at-bats and has just one RBI in his last 14 games.

"Well, you know what, it's just tough any way you lose a game," Beltran said. "You saw we had some opportunities to win this one and we just didn't come through as a team."

Lynn (13-7) had 12 victories at the All-Star break but was bumped to the bullpen last month and hasn't won since July 27. He hung a 1-1 breaking pitch to Braun.

"Just a bad breaking ball to the MVP of last year," Lynn said. "He did what he was supposed to do with it. Other than that I threw the ball well, but you can't make the mistake.

"I made the wrong pitch to the wrong guy at the wrong time."

Beltran is in an 0-for-13 slump. He missed two games this week because of soreness in his left knee and said after the game that he has also battled renewed soreness in his right hand.
