ST. LOUIS -- Since the start of the 2008 season, only one opponent has been tougher than the Brewers on the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium. The Rockies are 5-2 here, a .714 winning percentage. Following Wednesday's 3-2 win, the Brewers are 18-9, a .667 winning clip.
The only other team with a winning record at Busch Stadium over that span is the Giants, who are 4-3. The Cardinals have won at least 57 percent of their home games in each of the past three seasons.
You try to figure it out.
"You get those statistical anomalies all the time," Brewers manager Ken Macha said. "All the stats come out and then you look at them and ask, 'Why?' If we had the answers, Tony [La Russa, the Cardinals' veteran manager] would get that straightened out."
Wednesday marked Milwaukee's final visit in 2010, though the teams will meet again. The Cardinals will be at Miller Park from Sept. 6-8.
