6th Inning Does In Astros In Milwaukee

By  | 

MILWAUKEE, WI -- Johnny Estrada launched a grand slam while the
Milwaukee Brewers were erupting for nine runs in the sixth inning
of an 11-to-5 victory over Houston.

The Astros carried a 4-to-2 lead into the sixth before the
Brewers scored three runs on right fielder Luke Scott's error. Tony
Graffanino followed with his fourth career pinch-hit homer before Estrada hit his first career grand slam.

Carlos Lee's two-run homer snapped a two-all tie in the top of
the sixth before the Brewers improved to 11-and-2 since they were
no-hit by Detroit's Justin Verlander.

Astros second baseman Craig Biggio went 1-for-4 to move within
three hits over becoming the 27th player with three-thousand.

Matt Wise worked a hitless sixth to get to 2-and-1.

Wandy Rodriguez is 4-and-7 after allowing six runs and seven
hits in five-plus innings.
