Piscotty's slam paces Cardinals to sweep over Brewers

Posted:

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Stephen Piscotty's second grand slam of the season propelled the St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-8, rain-soaked victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday and a weekend sweep.

Brandon Moss had a go-ahead double in a two-run fifth and rookie Aledmys Diaz hit his 11th homer. The Cardinals lead the season series 7-2.

The start was delayed by rain 1 hour, 20 minutes by rain, there was a 14-minute stoppage in the middle of the sixth and a third delay of 55 minutes in the top of the Brewers' two-run seventh. Perhaps a few thousand of a crowd of 41,148 stuck it out for a game that lasted 3:48.
