Garcia Pitches into Eighth in Cards Win

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jaime Garcia pitched eight innings and Allen Craig drove in four runs to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 10-1 win over Milwaukee and the franchise's first four-game sweep of the Brewers.

Matt Holliday also 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 swept a four-game series with the Brewers, who moved to the NL and have been in the Cardinals' division since the 1998 season.

Garcia (4-1), who won his third straight game, gave up one run on eight hits. He had three strikeouts and only one walk.

Marco Estrada (2-2) lasted 3 1-3 innings for the Brewers, who lost for the fifth straight game.
