NEW LOCKS, NEW LUCK?
Cardinals RHP Carlos Martinez has more of a traditional hair style. Martinez, the team's opening day starter, hopes the new look changes his fortunes. He has sported gold and silver long hair, but is winless through his first five starts.
Brewers: OF Ryan Braun (right trapezius soreness) remains day to day. … LHP Tommy Milone was designated for assignment, and Milwaukee selected the contract of RHP Rob Scahill from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Cardinals: INF Jhonny Peralta (upper respiratory illness) has worked in the batting cage, but still hasn't taken live fielding.
Brewers: RHP Wily Peralta (4-1, 5.19 ERA) looks for his third quality start Tuesday night. He is 4-11 with a 5.10 ERA in his career against St. Louis, including 0-8 with a 5.46 ERA over his last eight starts vs. the Cardinals.
Cardinals: Martinez (0-3, 4.71) is still seeking his first win since Sept. 30, 2016. He is 4-2 with a 1.95 ERA in 20 career appearances against Milwaukee.
