The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers by a 9-3 score at Miller Park on Sunday. Lance Lynn took a two-hitter into the seventh inning.

Lance Lynn pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-3 on Sunday, taking two out of three games from their NL Central rivals to start the season.

Ryan Braun hit his first home run of the year for the Brewers, a solo shot with the game well out of reach in the ninth.

It was the third career start for Lynn (1-0), who played a key relief role during the Cardinals' championship run last season. The 24-year-old right-hander was added to the rotation after Chris Carpenter went on the disabled list with a shoulder problem this spring.

Corey Hart had a solo homer in the fifth for Milwaukee after hitting a pair of home runs Saturday.
