MILWAUKEE -- For a team that thinks it can and will play a whole lot better, the St. Louis Cardinals are in decent position.Mike Leake struck out a season-high 10 over seven innings, Matt Adams and Randal Grichuk homered, and the Cardinals cooled off Milwaukee rookie Junior Guerra in a 5-1 victory over the Brewers on Sunday.Aledmys Diaz scored from first on a single in the fifth to snap a tie and the Cardinals entered the All-Star break having cut a 12-game deficit to the Cubs to seven in the NL Central.Thats pretty impressive, manager Mike Matheny said, because we havent played well.Adams snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a solo homer estimated at 455 feet to lead off the second. That ended a 16 1/3-inning scoreless streak for Guerra (6-2). The right-hander allowed another solo shot to Grichuk in the sixth and snapped a three-start winning streak.Grichuk and Adams added RBI hits in the ninth.Even though the (hitless skid) I felt that I was squaring up some balls and just hitting them hard right at them, Adams said. But I was swinging at balls I dont normally swing at. The last couple days I felt I was able to manage the strike zone a little bit better.Jonathan Lucroy had two hits, including an RBI single in the first for the Brewers, who are 0-13-1 in their last 14 series with St. Louis.Strikeouts have been a problem Milwaukee season, and Leake (6-7) was an unlikely candidate to keep that going.Leake entered with a rate of 5.7 strikeouts-per-nine-inning, ranking 91st out of 99 qualifying pitchers in the majors. However, he used his slider to keep Milwaukee off balance.I had that to go to because it was working and they were swinging over it, Leake said. So why not use it a little bit more?Leake allowed six hits and no walks in his first win since June 12.Mike was really good today, Matheny said. He got into some bad spots and made better pitchers when that happened.The Brewers wasted Chris Carters leadoff triple in the seventh, his first since 2014, and didnt score after putting runners at first and third with no outs in the third.To sustain a rally, you have to get something going there, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.Hernan Perez fanned three times, and the Brewers struck out 10 or more times for the 42nd time in 87 games.Ex-Brewers reliever Jonathan Broxton struck out two in a perfect eighth before a two-run ninth put it away.The Cardinals took a 2-1 lead in the fifth thanks to their speedy All-Star. Diaz reached on his 19th infield single with two out. He then never stopped and scored from first on Stephen Piscottys bloop single off center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis glove.I just ran hard and looked at the third base coach, Diaz said. I ran like it was a double in the gap and he sent me to home plate. I was ready to keep running.The 31-year-old Guerra walked Leake with two out in the sixth to end his day. The former independent league right-hander gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out five.I didnt make quality pitches at times, Guerra said. When I missed my spot, they took advantage and got some big hits.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: LF Matt Holliday (ankle) didnt start for a second straight day, but flied out as a pinch hitter in the eighth. ... C Alberto Rosario went 1 for 3 in his first big league start with veteran Yadier Molina resting a sore knee.Brewers: OF Domingo Santana (elbow) will remain in Milwaukee during the All-Star break to rehab. The goal is to hopefully increase his on-field activity starting Friday in Cincinnati, Counsell said. Hopefully by the weekend, we can determine dates for (a minor league rehab assignment).WEB GEMA fan in the first inning made a leaning catch of a foul ball with his glove, bounced off the top of the Milwaukee dugout and fell backward to the ground. The man held onto the ball and drew cheers from Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, sitting nearby.UP NEXTCardinals: Diaz replaces injured teammate Matt Carpenter in Tuesdays All-Star Game. St. Louis returns from the break Friday against Miami to start a 10-game homestand.Brewers: Lucroy heads to his second All-Star Game. Milwaukee then begins a six-game trip in Cincinnati on Friday.

TORONTO -- After the final out, thats when things really heated up between the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays.Both benches and bullpens cleared after the Blue Jays wrapped up a 3-2 win Monday night, and the skirmish got settled without anyone throwing punches.After Steven Souza Jr. hit a liner to center for the last out, he traded words with Russell Martin, misunderstanding the Toronto catchers praise for his hard-hit drive as criticism.The situation escalated when Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki joined the fray with some choice words for Souza.Troy decided to jump in and say some things that werent really necessary, Souza said.Martin said Tulowitzki kind of came in there and just kind of blew up in (Souzas) face.Cooler heads soon prevailed, and Souza sorted things out with Martin before everyone left the field.Were fine, Martin said.

Carrera homered on the right-handers first pitch.He did it in a big way, manager John Gibbons said.Boxberger said he was surprised Carreras ball ended up a home run.It was down and away, good pitch, Boxberger said. When a ball you think is just going to be a lazy fly ball all of a sudden goes out you kind of just have to laugh it off.Carrera was the batter the last time Toronto got a pinch-hit homer, on July 25, 2015, at Seattle.Blue Jays left-hander Fraancisco Liriano opened the game by giving up a leadoff single to Logan Forsythe, then retired the next 14 batters.dddddddddddd Souza broke the streak with a two-out walk in the fifth but Liriano fanned Richie Shaffer to end the inning.He was cruising, Souza said of Liriano. He was throwing everything kind of where he wanted to, down in the zone.Bautista gave Toronto a 2-0 lead with a two-out homer off Jake Odorizzi in the sixth. For Bautista, it was his first extra-base hit since homering at Baltimore on Aug. 31.Evan Longoria homered on Lirianos first pitch in the seventh and Brad Miller followed by homering on a 1-0 slider. It was the third time this season the Rays have hit back-to-back homers and the second time theyve done it on their current road trip.TO ERR IS...Toronto has made at least one error in a season-worst six consecutive games.
