Brewers' "O" gets 7-3 win over O's
After spotting Baltimore 2-0 and 3-2 leads, the Brewers' offense came alive to score 5 runs to take the interleague series over Baltimore, winning the rubber match 7-3.
Down 3-2 heading into the bottom of the 5th, Bill Hall quickly tied the game with his 10th homer run of the season. Gabe Kapler was then plunked, advancing to second after Rickie Weeks, in his first game back since coming off the DL, walked. J.J. Hardy then singled in Kapler with the eventual winning run.
For insurance (and to reaffirm to everyone that he still has power), Prince Fielder added a couple of home runs, driving in 3 runs and scoring 3 runs on the day.
Manny Parra, despite giving up 3 ER's in just 5 IP, earned the win to move to 7-2, 4.29 on the year. Salomon Torres earned his 12th save of the year. Mark DiFelice and David Riske earned holds.
The Crew goes on the road, starting with three in Atlanta.
