HOUSTON -- Corey Hart hit two of Milwaukee's season-high five home runs and the Brewers snapped a five-game losing streak at Minute Maid Park with a 10-6 win over the Houston Astros.
Miguel Tejada, Carlos Lee and Ty Wigginton hit solo homers for
the Astros, who've lost 10 of their last 13.
Houston catcher Brad Ausmus and manager Cecil Cooper were
ejected in the seventh inning for arguing separate calls with
first-base umpire Angel Campos.
Brandon Backe (4-8) gave up three of the Brewers' homers - to
Russell Branyan, Mike Cameron and Hart. Jason Kendall added a
two-run shot in the fifth off Tim Byrdak and Hart connected again
off Chris Sampson in the eighth.
