Tommy Pham, Paul DeJong, Dexter Fowler and Yadier Molina each contributed base hits in the losing effort for St. Louis.

He twirled a beauty in his Dodgers opener, striking out 10 and allowing no runs on three hits over seven innings in a 6-0 win over the New York Mets.

The Milwaukee Brewers capped off a three-city road trip by taking 2 of 3 from the Los Angeles Dodgers, pulling out a 3-2 victory on Sunday. Luke Weaver will start the opening game and is 2-1 with a 2.31 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season.

Milwaukee got off to a good start in the first couple innings. A first inning error allowed the Brewers to jump out in front 1-0. Corey Knebel struck out a pair in the 9th for his 29th save of the season.

In his next start, he fanned another 10 batters and earned his second consecutive win in the Dodgers' 8-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers have not lost a series since June 5-7. The Brewers have won eight of their last 11 games but still have a giant question mark at the leadoff spot, where manager Craig Counsell has received mixed results all season from Jonathan Villar, Eric Thames, Eric Sogard and utilityman Hernan Perez, who got the nod on Saturday and went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Darvish's last start prior to hitting the disabled list was a no-decision in LA's 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox. Not to mention the Brew Crew are coming off of those big wins against the Dodgers which has to give them some momentum, so I'll back Milwaukee to draw first blood here.
