Banged-up during an active three-game series against the Braves, Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun made an early exit from Sunday's 4-3 win with a sore right arm and said he expects to be sidelined at least a couple of days.
Ever since the end of the 2012 regular season, the Cardinals have had their way with the Brewers.

After getting soft tissue treatment all morning Sunday to help relieve the swelling in his right hand, Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw said he expects to be back in the Brewers lineup for Monday's series opener in St. Louis.
Matt Kemp hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career, and the Braves continued to mash the ball, landing an 11-3 victory over Milwaukee on Saturday. Dansby Swanson also homered, and the Braves churned out 20 hits to win their fourth straight game. Atlanta has scored 36 runs in that stretch.
After Jimmy Nelson walked 86 batters and hit 17 more with pitches in his 179 innings last year, he vowed to rededicate himself to pitching with control in 2017. To a degree, that's worked, with a combined four walks in four of his five starts this year.

Gleyber Torres was 0-for-3 in his return from the disabled list on Friday, but the Yankees' top prospect promptly knocked off the rust and put his entire skillset on display Saturday.
Brewers love Thames' Korean theme song
Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw left Saturday's 11-3 loss to the Braves with a right hand contusion, replaced in the fifth inning by pinch-hitter Jesus Aguilar.
The similarities between Brewers utility man Hernan Perez and shortstop Orlando Arcia are plentiful. Both native Venezuelans came into the league at age 21 as middle infielders (Perez in 2012, Arcia last year), and both have endured their struggles at the plate in their career. Both again struggled to catch fire at the outset of 2017. Now, it appears, both are finding their way out using a similar approach.
In any other year, Ryan Braun's opening month might be a big story for the .500 Brewers. With three more hits, including a two-run home run in Friday's 10-8 loss to the Braves, Braun is among the 20 most productive players in baseball in terms of home runs, OPS, weighted runs created plus and hard-hit percentage.
Freddie Freeman's two-run homer in the ninth gave the Braves a 10-8 victory over the Brewers after Atlanta overcame a pair of four-run deficits on Friday night at Miller Park.
Francisco Mejia has already piled up plenty of hits for Double-A Akron this season, but it wasn't until Friday night that the Indians' No. 2 prospect entered the home run column, connecting on a solo shot in the ninth inning of the RubberDucks' 6-1 win over Bowie.
Nearing the end of his fourth week on the disabled list, Brewers Opening Day starter Junior Guerra is back on the mound and making progress toward a return to the active roster.
The hitting guru was in the middle of a lesson when 12-year-old Eric Thames knocked on his door. Thames had run the three miles to Joe Bettencourt's San Jose, Calif., home with bat in hand, just as he would do the next day and the day after that, and for years after that, until Thames was old enough and strapping enough that Bettencourt suggested it might not be the best idea for a young man to be running city streets with a baseball bat.
Eric Thames' meditation might help him hit HRs
The Reds finally kept Eric Thames in the yard, but the Brewers enjoyed another big day at the plate anyway, completing a three-game sweep with a 9-4 win on Wednesday at Miller Park.
Brewers first baseman Eric Thames left Wednesday's game at Miller Park in the eighth inning due to a tight left hamstring. The abrupt exit in Milwaukee's 9-4 victory marked an official end to his bid for a home run in every game against Cincinnati this season.
Craig Counsell called it "fun with numbers," the fact the 12-11 Brewers have led at some point in 21 of their first 23 games. His club has been no fun for opposing pitchers, particularly in the first inning.
Eric Thames-mania has swept Milwaukee, but where's the merch? Fear not, American consumer, for it has arrived at Miller Park.
How did Eric Thames get off to such a smashing start for the Brewers? The answer is actually quite simple, even if the implementation is difficult. He stopped swinging at bad pitches. He started swinging at good ones. The rest is history.
Brewers uber-utility man Hernan Perez quietly set a Major League record in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Reds. His 10 total bases set a new single-game standard for a player who manned shortstop and center field, surpassing another Brewer, Jose Hernandez, who logged nine total bases while playing those spots in a win over the Giants in 2001.
Eric Thames understands the suspicions. Heck, if it were some other player hitting home runs at a record pace, especially after playing three years abroad, Thames might be suspicious himself.
Eric Thames did it again, and he is not the only Brewers hitter teeing off against the Reds.
Another HR? Thames may be unstoppable
Eric Thames is the early-season toast of Major League Baseball, but you don't have to remind the Reds.
After putting up video game numbers during three years in South Korea, Eric Thames is doing the same in his return to MLB.
How much fun is it to watch Brewers first baseman Eric Thames play right now? There's power and discipline in that swing. There's joy, too, because the back story is so sweet and so improbable.
Posting zeroes has become the norm for Class A Kane County's Jon Duplantier in the first month of the Minor League season. On Monday, the D-backs' No. 8 prospect fired five dominant frames to extend his scoreless innings streak to 20 1/3 to begin the season.
Craig Counsell said the team has "talked quite a bit, actually," about batting the pitcher eighth,something he hasn't employed this year.
It's up to the veteran manager there, Rick Sweet, to figure out how to fit Kirk Nieuwenhuis in.

The hits have started to fall for Brewers leadoff man Jonathan Villar, and it's been a team effort from the video room to the indoor batting cage to the dugout.
Mike Leake grabbed a bat and did his best Adam Wainwright impersonation, while Jimmy Nelson remained oh-for-St. Louis.
Brent Suter's latest stint in the big leagues was capped by a new career-high for crowd noise.
It seems like every time he takes the mound, Kolby Allard keeps showing why the Braves drafted him No. 14 overall two years ago. Allard is among Sunday's top prospect performers.
Top Brewers prospect Lewis Brinson is tearing up Triple-A, and you can almost hear the drumbeat beginning outside Miller Park. "When," fans are beginning to ask, "will we see this guy in Milwaukee?"
A banged-up Aledmys Diaz did not start for the Cardinals on Saturday, but he made his presence felt with one big swing off the bench.
Chase Anderson squared for a squeeze bunt -- a phrase you don't often see associated with manager Craig Counsell's Brewers -- and missed. Of the many pivotal moments in a sometimes sloppy, sometimes entertaining game Saturday, this was the one that may have hurt most.
