Late Inning Does In Astros Against Brewers

By  | 

MILWAUKEE -- Prince Fielder hit his N-L-leading 27th homer and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Houston Astros 6-to-1. The N-L Central-leading Brewers have won ten of 12 since being no-hit by the Tigers' Justin Verlander on June 12th.

Ben Sheets won his fifth consecutive decision to go to 9-and-3.
Sheets allowed one run on five hits and three walks in six innings.
He's allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last 13 starts and
has won five straight decisions for the first time since 2001, his
rookie year.

The two-time All-Star is 4-and-0 in five June starts.

Fielder led off the eighth with a 434-foot shot to deep center
field to give Milwaukee a 4-to-1 lead. It was Fielder's first home
run in a week, and his eighth in June.
