Two teams that are still part of the Mlb Wild Card chase competed as part of Wednesday's baseball schedule with an exciting play to end the game. The Milwaukee Brewers were able to come away with a 6-5 win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals. That win was preserved in the top of the final inning by a game-saving catch in the outfield. Here are the latest Cardinals vs. Brewers MLB game recap with top performers, highlights, stats, a standings update and what's next.

MLB game recap

In today's 6-5 win, the Milwaukee Brewers received three runs in the second inning and another three runs in the sixth inning, giving them a 6-3 lead.

That sixth inning saw Domingo Santana and Jonathan Villar each hit a home run to help extend the Milwaukee lead. However, it was replacement center fielder Keon Broxton who made the play of the day. In the top of the ninth inning, the Cardinals had a man on when Randal Grichuk hit a blast to the outfield. However, Broxton's glove was there to save the game as he made a grab near the wall to prevent a possible home run that would have given St. Louis the lead.

Pitcher Corey Knebel picked up the save, his 30th, with Broxton helping him achieve that. Chase Anderson picked up the win for the Brewers, extending his season record to 8-3. For the game, Milwaukee had 10 hits with Villar going 2-for-4 and getting three of the team's six RBIs today.

For the St. Louis Cardinals, Tommy Pham had two home runs giving him 19 for the season, while Grichuk hit his 17th of the season in the fifth inning. He was, of course, robbed of his 18th HR in the ninth by Broxton. Carlos Martinez was able to strike out seven batters today but also gave up two home runs and all six runs to the Brewers.

He is now 10-10 for the season after today's loss.
