SEOUL, Aug. 31 (Yonhap) -- The St. Louis Cardinals closer Oh Seung-hwan has earned his fourth win of the season with another scoreless outing.

The South Korean right-hander preserved a 1-1 tie by wiggling out of a two-out jam in the bottom of the ninth against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee on Tuesday (local time). He was then credited with the win when the Cards scored the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th.

Oh is now 4-2 with a 1.70 ERA. He also has 14 saves.

Oh retired the first two batters he faced before Ryan Braun got an infield single off the pitcher's body.

Braun advanced to third on a single by Hernan Perez. With Chris Carter at the plate, Perez advanced to second on a defensive indifference.

With the winning run 90 feet away, Oh got to full count before fanning Carter on a four-seam fastball at 93 mph.

Randal Grichuk drove in the winning run for the Cardinals with a single in the top 10th. Zach Duke got the game's final out for the save.

Oh has racked up 69 innings in 66 appearances so far, ranking near the top in the National League in both categories.
