ST. Dan Feeney Jersey . LOUIS -- At least the Milwaukee Brewers showed some fight.Stephen Piscottys second grand slam of the season propelled the St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-8, rain-soaked, elongated victory Sunday and a weekend sweep, but the Brewers made the ending suspenseful.It was 8-2 and rain delays and everything, and we put the tying run 90 feet away and certainly had a chance to tie it up, manager Craig Counsell said. Its an easy game to kind of stop, but they dont make excuses for anything.Brandon Moss had a go-ahead double in a two-run fifth inning, and rookie Aledmys Diaz hit his 11th homer. The Cardinals lead the season series 7-2, with many of the games lopsided.Im sure were not the only team that struggles against the Cardinals, said Ryan Braun, who had a season-high four hits and made a nice catch at the left-field wall to rob Diaz of an extra-base hity. Theyre fundamentally sound. They dont make mistakes. They dont beat themselves.The Cardinals won the first two games of the series by a combined 10-1.We certainly havent done enough in all phases to beat them, Counsell said. Against any of these better teams, youve got to do a lot right and were just not doing enough against these guys.The series finale was looking like another comfortable victory for St. Louis, ahead by six in the sixth. The Brewers scored two in the seventh and four in the ninth to make it very interesting.It would have been an amazing win if we came all the way back, Braun said. But, obviously, its a good sign that we continue to fight and continue to battle to the end.The start was delayed by 1 hour, 20 minutes by rain, there was a 14-minute stoppage in the middle of the sixth and a third delay of 55 minutes in the top of the Brewers two-run seventh. Perhaps a few thousand of a crowd of 41,148 stuck it out for a game that lasted 3:48 and ended with puddles everywhere.Piscotty is 5 for 9 with 13 RBI with the bases loaded this season, including his first career slam on May 27 at Washington, and for his career hes 8 for 15 with 18 RBI. He connected on a full count against Blaine Boyer with two outs in the sixth for an 8-2 lead.Michael Wacha (5-7) allowed two runs and nine hits and escaped his fifth and final inning when Aaron Hill grounded into a double play on a 3-1 count with the bases loaded. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a two-run double in a four-run ninth and the tying and go-ahead runs were on base when Seung Hwan Oh struck out pinch-hitter Martin Maldonado for his second save.Chase Anderson (4-9) has lost three straight starts, allowing 15 earned runs in 10 2/3 innings and was pulled after his fifth walk, with one out in the fifth. Jacob Barnes gave up Moss RBI double for the lead and Jhonny Peraltas sacrifice fly.Ramon Flores two-run double put the Brewers ahead in the fourth.Milwaukee is 13-26 on the road with one series win and four splits in 13 attempts, and finished the first half 35-46.BREWERS MOVEAfter the game OF Keon Broxton was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs and INF Will Middlebrooks contract was selected from Colorado Springs. LHP Chris Capuano was transferred to the 60-day disabled list from the 15-day DL.SURPRISE STICKAnderson, who entered a career .077 hitter, singled in the second.ROSENTHALS WOESTrevor Rosenthal, who lost his closer job about a week ago, faced four hitters in the seventh, retired none of them and was charged with two runs.UP NEXTMilwaukee is 9-2 in starts by Junior Guerra (5-1) entering an 11:05 a.m. matchup against Max Scherzer (9-5, 3.30) at Washington. The right-hander will be facing the Nationals for the first time.

Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. Cronulla captain Paul Gallen cant see Sharks teammate Valentine Holmes making it in the NFL and suspects his cross-code dalliance is a ploy to bump up his NRL value.Holmes and North Queenslands 2016 Dally M Medallist Jason Taumalolo will participate in NFL trials in Los Angeles.The pair flew to the US together from London on Monday after clashing in the Four Nations final between Australia and New Zealand.Both are committed to their NRL clubs in 2017 and the trials on Saturday are seen as little more than a chance to test their wares and impress NFL scouts with their athletic ability.Gallen isnt questioning Holmes talents, but doubts his premiership-winning Sharks teammate could make it after Jarryd Hayne struggled to fully convince the San Francisco 49ers that he could.Do I think Val can make it? At this stage no, Gallen said on Triple Ms Rush Hour.I dont know enough about that game but Vals upper body I dont think will be big enough to play that gaame. Dexter McCoil Jersey. Hes certainly got big strong legs and hes an unbelievable athlete but I saw what Jarryd Hayne did over there.Jarryd Hayne went very well obviously but Haynsey is a much bigger man and much more athletic.I think if you give Val another couple of years to fill out and develop and grow as a man, then maybe he could go and do it, but at this stage I couldnt see him making it.Both Holmes and Taumalolo are believed to be deep into negotiations to remain with their NRL clubs beyond the end of the 2017 season.I think itll be a great opportunity for them but I cant help but think this is a bit of a ploy to say look these blokes have options, Gallen said of the trials midway through the NFL season.They both have the same manager and they are both going to be certainly in the top five players off contract next year.
