ST. LOUIS -- Down four regulars, the Milwaukee Brewers kept right on rolling. Lyle Overbay fouled off two bunt attempts, then singled in Khris Davis with the tiebreaking run and the Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals in extra innings for the second straight night, winning 5-4 in 11 innings Tuesday. "Were a team thats going to grind it out. We dont give in, we dont give up at-bats," said Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse, a former Cardinal. "I dont really look at the big picture. Were just trying to win as many games, rack up the wins and keep piling them on." Davis hit a go-ahead triple to help the Brewers win 5-3 in 12 innings Monday night and started the winning rally this time with a leadoff double against Kevin Siegrist (0-1). "With two strikes, obviously Im just trying to get him over to third base any way I can," said Overbay, who is 10 for 19 during an eight-game hitting streak. "That was a mistake, finally. The pitch that I hit up the middle, I dont know what he was trying to do with it." Milwaukee is a major league-best 20-7, two more victories than the previous franchise best for the opening month, and 11-1 on the road. Milwaukees lineup featured light-swinging Scooter Gennett batting third. Ryan Braun and Jean Segura didnt start for the third straight game, Aramis Ramirez had a swollen elbow from getting hit by a pitch, and catcher Jonathan Lucroy got a scheduled day off that manager Ron Roenicke elected not to reschedule. The Brewers makeshift lineup managed just enough offence to beat the Cardinals again. "Were playing great and well enjoy it as long as we can, but its not going to last the whole season," Roenicke said. "But again, were doing things right." Carlos Gomez homered and Lohse had a two-run single for the Brewers, who have won five of six. Tyler Thornburg (3-0) struck out four in two scoreless innings and Francisco Rodriguez finished for his 13th save in 13 chances. Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer in the first and Allen Craigs RBI triple tied it in the seventh for the Cardinals, who have lost three of four. "Its April," said Matt Adams, who opened with two hits but struck out his last three trips. "Were not happy that were not winning right now but were going to continue to show up every day ready to compete. "Things are going to turn around in our favour." The Brewers are 4-1 in extra innings and the Cardinals are 0-3. St. Louis 3-0 in both games in this series. "Not as good as I should have been, plain and simple," Cardinals starter Lance Lynn said. "You get three runs in the first, you win that game." Molina had been 1 for 13 with runners and scoring position and two outs before depositing a belt-high 1-1 fastball into the first row of seats in left-centre. It was the first homer off Lohse since he gave up two in his first start of the season, and Molinas fourth overall. Lohse followed with five scoreless innings and matched his season best with nine strikeouts, plus a two-run single to cap a three-run fourth against Lance Lynn to tie it. "I fouled off a couple below the label and I think the one I hit was below the label as well," Lohse said. "He kept coming with fastballs, kind of did me a favour." Gomez homered in the seventh against Tyler Lyons, in his second inning of relief. Lyons had been listed as the starter Friday at Chicago against the Cubs, but the Cardinals have a day off Thursday and could use ace Adam Wainwright on regular rest. NOTES: Shelby Miller is 4-0 with a 1.95 ERA in six career starts against the Brewers entering the series finale. Milwaukee starter Matt Garza (1-2, 4.09 ERA) is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA in three starts in St. Louis. ... Two rehabbing Cardinals pitchers, Jaime Garcia and Jason Motte, are getting closer to returning. Garcia (shoulder surgery) is scheduled to make his first start Sunday for Double-A Springfield and the team said Motte (elbow) is likely to join that team this weekend. ... Segura pinch-hit in the ninth and was thrown out trying for a bunt hit. ... The Brewers are 36-36 at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, one of only three NL teams that are .500 or better.

The mixed zone is not a place to make friends.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Andrew Luck made no excuses after his worst game as a pro came in the biggest game of his young career.My play was not up to par for where it needs to be to give you a chance to beat a quality team like them, Luck said after the New England Patriots ended the Indianapolis Colts season with a 45-7 victory in the AFC championship Sunday.Playing in steady rain from the start, the dome-team Colts (13-6) never got on track a week after upsetting Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on the road. Luck completed just 12 of 33 passes for 126 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. His passer rating was a career-low 23.0.A few of Lucks passes were dropped early in the game and the slick conditions certainly made it tougher to throw the ball and catch it. But Luck wouldnt blame the weather.I dont think it had a negative effect on anything, he said.Losing to the Patriots (14-4) is nothing new for Luck or the Colts.The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback is 0-4 against Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and New England in three seasons. He has six TDs and 10 interceptions in those four losses.Overall, the Colts are 1-4 against the Patriots in the playoffs since 2003.It was a great run, Colts owner Jim Irsay said. We all believed we had a chance to run the table, but it was a great season and we improved.The Colts have advanced one game further in each of Lucks three seasons. They lost in the first round in 2012 and in the divisional round to the Patriots last year.While Luck struggled, the defence couldnt stop Brady or LeGarrette Blunt. It contributed to the second-most lopsided AFC championship victory ever and third-most overall.Everybody had to play their best game of the year, coach Chuck Pagano said. It doesnt all fall on the quarterback. Im sure glad we got him. I wouldnt be here talking to you if we didnt.The Colts had a week full of distractions. The team placed backup linebacker Josh McNary on the commissioners exempt list Thursday, less than 24 hours after prosecutors filed criminal charges against the 26-year-old.ddddddddddddReserve offensive tackle Xavier Nixon missed the teams flight Saturday and was inactive. Running back Trent Richardson missed the walk-through Saturday and didnt travel with the team.Weve got too good of veteran leadership in that locker room, and were not going to use that as any excuse, Pagano said. It is what it is, its unfortunate, but it had nothing to do with the outcome of this game.Brady threw three touchdown passes, Blount ran 30 times for 148 yards and three scores and the Patriots made it a rout in the second half after taking a 17-7 lead at halftime.The biggest blowout in AFC title history was Buffalos 51-3 win over the Los Angeles Raiders after the 1990 season. The second-largest margin of victory in a conference championship game was the New York Giants 41-0 win over Minnesota following the 2000 regular season.The Patriots beat the Colts 43-22 in last seasons divisional playoff with Blount rushing for 166 yards and four touchdowns. They also beat them 43-22 on Nov. 16 as Jonas Gray rushed for 201 yards and four TDs.The Colts were porous against the run again Sunday night. They werent much better against the pass.After Luck threw an interception to Darrelle Revis late in the third quarter, a fan held up a sign: No Luck In Our House.They did a good job making plays and we didnt, Luck said. It seemed like they were more on the details and we werent. They did a good job of holding us in check tonight, really.While the Patriots head to Arizona to face the defending champion Seattle Seahawks (14-4) in the Super Bowl, the Colts enter the off-season trying to find a way to narrow the gap.Theyre in control of the AFC and we have to do whatever it takes to get closer, tight end Dwayne Allen said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: ' ' '
