Recap

Brewers 6, Cardinals 0: Corey Hart homered twice and Zack Greinke pitched seven shutout innings, leading Milwaukee past division rival St. Louis in the second game of an opening-weekend NLCS rematch.

Hart gave the Brewers the only run they would need when he led off the bottom of the second inning with a blast to left field off Adam Wainwright (0-1). He then greeted reliever Victor Marte with a two-out, two-run shot in the sixth before leaving the game in the top of the seventh inning with an undisclosed injury.

Greinke (1-0) was nearly untouchable, giving up just three singles while striking out seven without a walk. He showed no signs of slowing, retiring the side on just 10 pitches in the seventh before giving way to relievers Francisco Rodriguez and Jose Veras.

Wainwright, who missed all of the 2011 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, was lifted after surrendering an RBI double to Aramis Ramirez in the sixth. He struck out six while allowing three runs on four hits and a walk.

Rickie Weeks added a solo home run off Fernando Salas in the eighth inning for the Brewers, and Carlos Gomez, filling in for Hart, followed with an RBI double to close the scoring.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
The run-scoring double by Ramirez, who later scored on Hart’s second home run, was his first hit since coming over from the Chicago Cubs in the offseason ... David Freese had two of the Cardinals’ five hits, his third consecutive multi-hit game to open the year ... Weeks had his second two-hit game of the series, going 2-for-4.
