Here are the stories:


Brewer ace Yovani Gallardo was pitching pretty well – until the St. Louis Cardinals exploded for seven runs in the sixth inning.  Gallardo has lost 10 of 11 decisions to St. Louis, including last night's 8-0 defeat.  He wound up allowing six runs on seven hits in five and a third innings.  He was simply out-pitched.  Adam Wainwright pitched a four-hit shutout and drove in all the runs he needed with two RBIs on three hits.  The Brewers haven't scored a run in 25 innings and Cardinal pitchers now have three shutouts in a row.  Milwaukee is playing without two of its top hitters, Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez.  A gimpy Ryan Braun fanned three times for a second game in a row.  The Brewers try to salvage a winning today, sending Marco Estrada out against lefty Jaime Garcia.




Milwaukee's 11th loss in the last 14 games came Saturday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, 95-85.  Despite winning the game, the Bobcats still have the worst record in the NBA.  Because they lost the game, the Bucks are going to face the top-seeded Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs.  It will help to get starters Brandon Jennings and Larry Sanders back, but it isn't expected to help enough to beat the Heat.  Mike Dunleavy led the Bucks scoring with 19 points at Charlotte.  Monta Ellis added 16.  Charlotte led by five at the half and was up by 17 after three periods.  The Bucks did cut the lead to six with 23 seconds remaining, but the Bobcats were never seriously threatened.  Kemba Walker led the winnings with 21.




Wisconsin's Steve Stricker is one of 13 competitors within five shots of the lead going into today's final round at the Masters.  Angel Cabrera and Brandt Snedeker are tied at seven under par.  Stricker had a one under 71 Saturday and is tied for ninth at two under par for the first three rounds.  The always-dangerous Tiger Woods is three shots off the lead.  




Kyle Busch completed a weekend sweep at the Texas Motor Speedway by winning the Sprint Cup Series Texas 500 last night.  All four Wisconsin drivers in the starting lineup finished in the top-28.  Matt Kenseth had the best finish at 12th.  Eau Claire's Paul Menard was 17th, Janesville's Travis Kvapil was 22nd and Beloit native Danica Patrick finished 28t on the Fort Worth track.
