MILWAUKEE — Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran homered and Shelby Miller pitched six strong innings to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 Friday night.

The Cardinals jumped in front in the third inning on a two-out, two-run home run by Holliday off Brewers starter Kyle Lohse (1-3). Allen Craig followed with a single but was thrown out at the plate attempting to score on a double by Yadier Molina, one of three Cardinals thrown out at the plate.

St. Louis extended its lead in the fifth on Jon Jay's two-run double. Beltran added a solo home run leading off the seventh for the Cardinals, who scored another run in the inning on a passed ball. Allen Craig was thrown out at the plate attempting to score on a single by Pete Kozma to end the inning.

Lohse pitched five innings, giving up 11 hits and four earned runs. He walked one and struck out three. His ERA climbed to 3.16 from 2.53.
