ST. LOUIS (AP) — Josh Hader escaped a ninth-inning jam in his 37th straight scoreless appearance and the Milwaukee Brewers held off the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Thursday night for their third straight win.

Tyrone Taylor drove in a run for the seventh game game in a row and Luis Urías homered as the NL Central leaders increased their edge over the second-place Cardinals to 4 1/2 games.

Milwaukee first baseman Rowdy Tellez helped with his glove, ranging to catch five foul balls for outs. Overall, Brewers fielders caught seven foulouts.

Paul Goldschmidt homered and extended his hitting streak to 17 games for the Cardinals.

Hader, activated from the family medical emergency list earlier in the day, earned his 16th save in 16 tries this season. He gave up a leadoff single to Tommy Edman in the ninth and a one-out walk to Nolan Arenado before retiring Albert Pujols on a foul popup and Juan Yepez on a popout.

It marked Hader's 30th consecutive save conversion. He hasn't allowed a run since last July.

Eric Lauer (5-1) gave up two runs on four hits in the first two innings. His only blemish in his final three frames was a walk. He struck out one and walked four, throwing 96 pitches over five innings.

Urías hit his fourth homer of the season, connecting with one out in the first off Adam Wainwright (5-4).

One out later, Andrew McCutchen hit the first of three consecutive singles by the Brewers and scored on Taylor's hit.

Christian Yelich drove in a run in the second and McCutchen had an RBI hit in the fourth.

Wainwright gave up 10 hits and four runs in five innings. He dropped a decision for the first time in four games.

Goldschmidt hit his eighth home run, a solo drive in the seventh off Trevor Gott that made it 4-3. He also singled and his hitting .457 with six homers during his streak.

The Cardinals scored twice in the first. Edman doubled for the first of his three hits, Pujols had an RBI single and Yepez had a sacrifice fly.

STREAKING

When Goldschmidt walked in the first, he extended his streak of reaching base to 31 consecutive games, the longest in the majors this year. It’s the longest streak for St. Louis since Matt Carpenter reached in 35 straight in 2018.

FOUL MOOD

Along with Tellez's five grabs, catcher Omar Narváez and third baseman Jace Peterson each caught one foul ball for an out.

MOVES

Brewers: Optioned RHP Miguel Sánchez to Triple-A Nashville.

Cardinals: Optioned RHP Junior Fernández and C Iván Herrera to Triple-A Memphis. Recalled RHP Jake Woodford and RHP Kodi Whitley from Memphis. Activated C Yadier Molina from the bereavement list.

TRAINERS ROOM

Cardinals: Placed RHP Jordan Hicks (right forearm flexor) on the 15-day Injured List. ... RHP Jack Flaherty (shoulder) threw 25 pitches to hitters in batting practice, manager Oliver Marmol said. On the 60-day IL, he’s eligible to return to the Cardinals in early June and could head soon to a minor league rehab assignment.

UP NEXT

Brewers: RHP Brandon Woodruff (5-2, 4.76) goes for his third consecutive win and his second against the Cardinals this year. He gave up three hits over five innings to get the win in a 5-1 win April 14 in Milwaukee.

Cardinals: RHP Dakota Hudson (3-2, 3.60) seeks his second win in his fifth start of May, during which he’s only made it out of the fifth inning once. He took the loss at Milwaukee on April 17, giving up four runs (three earned) on three hits in just three innings as the Brewers won 6-5.
