ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jonathan Lucroy hit a solo home run in the 10th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied past the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Sunday and avoided a sweep at Busch Stadium.

The Brewers trailed 3-0 when Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer off reliever Trevor Rosenthal with no outs in the eighth.

Braun's second home run of the season snapped a 39-inning shutout streak for St. Louis pitchers. It also broke a club-record 32-inning scoreless string for the Brewers, who had not scored since the second inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

Milwaukee tied it in the ninth on a leadoff single by Carlos Gomez and an RBI double by Yuniesky Betancourt off Mitchell Boggs.
