The St. Louis Cardinals placed right-hander Joe Kelly on 15-day disabled list Thursday with a left hamstring strain. Kelly was injured Wednesday afternoon in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee while running to first base trying to beat out an infield single on a ground ball in the top of the fifth inning. In three starts this season, Kelly was 1-1 with a 0.59 ERA. Last year, Kelly was 10-5 with a 2.69 ERA in 15 starts and 37 appearances for the Cardinals.

Coming off a series win over the Miami Marlins, the Nationals now return home for an 11-game homestand beginning with four games against the defending NL champion St. Louis Cardinals. Adam Wainwright (2-1, 2.25) will pitch the first game with Michael Wacha set for Game 2. Needless to say, the Nationals’ makeshift lineup will have its work cut out for them over the next two nights. Wainwright enters today with 12 career starts against the Nationals.

The Milwaukee Brewers avoided a sweep and maintained an early two-game lead in the National League Central with a 5-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. “That’s a pretty good team over there,” Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy said. Lucroy’s two-run single in the fifth expanded what had been a 1-0 game as the Brewers’ bats came to life against the Cardinals’ pitchers, who had held Milwaukee to one run and six hits in the last two games. Smith threw a scoreless inning as the Brewers’ bullpen continued its April dominance.

MILWAUKEE — Right-hander Wily Peralta worked into the seventh inning and catcher Jonathan Lucroy had a two-run single as the Milwaukee Brewers avoided a sweep by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park. Milwaukee’s offense, held to a run on six hits in the first two games against St. Louis, finally showed signs of life, taking advantage of two Cardinals’ errors to snap a two-game losing streak. First baseman Matt Adams bobbled a bouncer by Brewers right fielder Logan Schafer to lead off the third and after Peralta laid down a sacrifice bunt to move Schafer into scoring position, center fielder Carlos Gomez drove him home with a double to center.

MILWAUKEE – After two rough outings to open the season, St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller might have found his groove. Miller, a 23-year-old fireballer in his second full season, continued his mastery of the Brewers, holding Milwaukee to a run and three hits as St. Louis extended its winning streak to four games with a 6-1 victory on Monday night at Miller Park. “That looks more like Shelby,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. There were a couple times where I know (catcher Yadier Molina) went out and talked to him like he was trying to amp it up a little bit, but for the most part, when he did back off the ball even jumped a little better.”

MILWAUKEE — Since the start of the season, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke insisted he would like to see right-hander Jim Henderson back in the ninth-inning role. Henderson converted 28 of 32 save opportunities last season, but after a slow start in spring training, Roenicke opted to install veteran right-hander Francisco Rodriguez as the temporary closer while Henderson worked out a few issues in lower-leverage situations. By all accounts, Henderson was working his way back, holding opponents scoreless while striking out seven over his first six outings before serving up two ninth-inning home runs Tuesday in a 6-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Shelby Miller struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings, and Mark Ellis had two RBIs in his return from the disabled list to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 win Tuesday night over the Milwaukee Brewers. Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta each hit solo shots in the ninth off reliever Jim Henderson for the Cardinals, who handed Milwaukee its second straight loss following a nine-game winning streak. Only Aramis Ramirez managed to break through off Miller hitting a solo homer in the fourth. The Brewers have just one run and six hits over the first two games of the three-game set with their NL Central rival.
