Gerardo Parra homers, collects three hits Monday
Parra hit the second of back-to-back home runs in the second inning, but it would be all the offense the Brewers could muster. He has hit .259/.307/.374 with eight home runs, 38 RBI and seven stolen bases in 455 at-bats.
Khris Davis swats 21st home run Monday
Davis tried to help bring his team back from a three-run deficit by hitting the first of back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning, but the Brewers weren't able to do any more damage. Davis has hit .249/.307/.478 with 21 home runs and 66 RBI in 441 at-bats.
Kolten Wong slugs pinch-hit home run Monday
Wong was cleared of a concussion before the game, but manager Mike Matheny didn't immediately stick him back in the lineup. That left Wong the opportunity to provide the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the bullpen locked down the final six outs to hand the Cardinals a win.
"My neck was killing me today," Wong told MLB.com after the game. "But there comes certain points in time when you have to man up. Today was definitely one of those days where I told myself I just needed to man up and put a good at-bat together."
Wong has hit .252/.293/.404 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 337 at-bats.
Andrew McCutchen slugs 21st home run Monday
McCutchen put his team up 4-2 with his seventh-inning blast, but the Cardinals were able to cross the plate three times in the bottom of the seven to pull out a win. McCutchen owns a .308/.401/.539 line with 21 home runs, 72 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 458 at-bats.
Seth Maness picks up sixth win Monday
Maness (6-3) entered the game with a man on first but watched the runner get caught attempting to steal second base. He then recorded a groundball out to end the seventh inning before the offense took the lead in the next frame. Maness owns a 3.03 ERA and 46:10 K:BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings.
Giancarlo Stanton swats 34th home run Monday
Stanton delivered the first blow in the high-scoring game in the first inning with his NL-leading 34th home run. He has hit .292/.401/.554 with 99 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 504 at-bats.
Dilson Herrera slugs first major-league home run Monday
The two hits were his first for extra bases in his career. He's 4 for 10 since going 0 for 3 in his major-league debut Friday.
Jeurys Familia takes loss Monday vs. Marlins
Though Familia (2-4) only had one run marked as "earned," all three runs can be laid at his feet, as the reliever made two throwing errors on sacrifices and also uncorked a run-scoring wild pitch. He owns a 2.13 ERA and 57:30 K:BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings.
A.J. Ramos moves to 6-0 with win Monday
Ramos needed just eight pitches to retire the side in order in the eighth, extending his scoreless streak to 6 1/3 innings. He owns a 1.89 ERA and 65:37 K:BB ratio in 57 innings.
Brad Miller slugs ninth home run Monday
Miller followed up a 3-for-3 performance Sunday with his first blast in more than two months, but his playing time could continue to be spotty with rookie Chris Taylor posting a .378 OBP. Miller has hit .207/.281/.345 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 319 at-bats.
