Wong homered among his three hits and had three RBI for the Cardinals, who are two games behind the NL Central-leading Brewers.

Masterson (1-0), acquired from Cleveland on Wednesday, gave up five runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings. It was his first action since a DL stint for right knee inflammation.

Ryan Braun and Scooter Gennett both had two RBI for Milwaukee, which saw starter Kyle Lohse (11-6) get tagged for nine runs -- seven earned -- on nine hits and three walks in four-plus innings.
