"Yep, I wouldn't be here if I didn't", Holland said. "Obviously today I struggled with my command kind of from the go".

"A number of good things happened offensively to keep us in that game", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. "We haven't been playing bad, but we haven't been clicking like we know we're capable of". Josh Hader gave up a home run to Tommy Pham to start the ninth inning.

The 4-3 Milwaukee lead held until the ninth, when St. Louis loaded the bases and Dexter Fowler hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

"You don't often a second chance at it", Albers said.

"We think Junior had a really good camp, had a great first start in Colorado Springs", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said to mlb.com. "I thought that was a real good matchup for us".

"We kept at it and scored a run and pulled it off", he said. OF Lorenzo Cain is listed as day-to-day after bruising his Achilles tendon in a first base collision with Jose Martinez on Monday. Cain has a sore quad.

Cardinals: RHP Michael Wacha (1-1, 5.59) takes the mound start as St. Louis starts a four-game series at Cincinnati Thursday. He struck out five and had a balk. Greg Garcia delivered a key two single to knot the game at 3-3.

Following a pair of extra-inning games, the Milwaukee Brewers hoped to establish a decent margin in their series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fowler and Marcell Ozuna each drove in two runs for the Cardinals.

Thames' fifth home run of the season went just over the glove of right fielder Harrison Bader, who jumped at the 9-foot fence and looked at his glove in disbelief after he failed to snag the ball. In the second, Ozuna was thrown out at third after hitting a double down the third-base line by left fielder Ryan Braun.

The Cardinals recalled Holland from the minors in time for Monday night's game against Milwaukee, and the All-Star righty said he was ready to pitch. He replaces Christian Yelich (right oblique injury). Phillips, who was 1 for 7 with a triple and seven walks at Colorado Springs, takes the spot of reliever Adrian Houser, who was optioned Sunday to Double-A Biloxi.

Brewers left-hander Brent Suter (1-1, 6.30 ERA) will be making his third start of the season on Tuesday night. Suter is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in six career games and two starts against the Cardinals.
