>>Cards Rally Past Brewers

(Milwaukee, WI)  --  Allen Craig's RBI single in the top of the ninth lifted the Cardinals to a 3-2 comeback win over the Brewers in the opener of a three-game series.  Craig's hit came after Matt Holliday delivered a game-tying two-run single in the frame.  Lance Lynn struck out 10 over seven innings in a no-decision.  Jason Motte was credited with his fourth win for St. Louis, which stopped a three-game skid.  Corey Hart clubbed a solo homer and Ryan Braun added an RBI double for Milwaukee.  Michael Fiers fired seven innings of four-hit, shutout ball.  John Axford blew his sixth save and dropped to 2-and-6 with the loss.

>>BoSox Down White Sox

(Boston, MA)  --  Adrian Gonzalez homered and plated four runs as the Red Sox spoiled Kevin Youkilis' return to Fenway with a 5-1 win over the White Sox.  In his first game of the season, Carl Crawford went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run for the BoSox.  Aaron Cook allowed only an unearned run in seven innings, but Vicente Padilla was credited with his third win.  David Ortiz suffered an Achilles injury, but he said he does not expect it to be serious.  In his first game in Boston since being traded last month, Youkilis went 3-for-4 with a run for Chicago.  Adam Dunn knocked in Chicago's only run on a ground out in the first.  Leyson Septimo was charged with the loss.

>>Cubs Open Series With Marlins

(Chicago, IL)  --  The Cubs begin a three-game series with the Marlins at Wrigley Field tonight.  Travis Wood is slated to get the start on the mound for Chicago.  Miami will counter with Anibal Sanchez.  First-pitch will be at 7:05.

>>Brewers Scratch Greinke From Wednesday Start

(Milwaukee, WI)  --  The Milwaukee Brewers have scratched pitcher Zack Greinke from Wednesday's scheduled start against the St. Louis Cardinals.  The former American League Cy Young winner has been the subject of much trade speculation, but manager Ron Roenicke tells FoxSports.com that there is nothing physically wrong with Greinke, he simply needs to "recharge his batteries."  Tyler Thornburg will start Wednesday instead.  Greinke is 9-and-3 with a 3.57 ERA this season, but has allowed 14 runs over his last 14 innings pitched.
