Redman (10-5) allowed one run on six hits in eight innings,
including just two harmless singles after the second inning. He
walked one and struck out seven in sending the Brewers to their
fourth straight loss.
On April 24 at Miami, Redman allowed two earned runs in nine
innings in a 4-2 victory over Milwaukee, and surrendered one
unearned run in eight innings of a 12-4 win at Miller Park on June
In his second major league start, David Manning (0-2)
surrendered six earned runs on seven hits in 2 2-3 innings. He
nearly didn't make it out of the first, when he allowed four earned
runs on four hits and needed 36 pitches to retire the side.
Juan Pierre led off the game with a walk, stole his major
league-leading 55th base, advanced to third on second baseman Eric
Young's second throwing error in two nights and scored on Mike
Redmond's sacrifice fly.
The Brewers, who grounded into inning-ending double plays three
times in the last four innings Friday night, grounded into double
plays to end the first and second innings Saturday night.
Manning, called up last week to fill in for injured starter
Glendon Rusch, also had a rough outing in his major league debut in
Montreal, where he surrendered six earned runs on four hits and
five walks in four innings.
With an ERA of 16.19, Manning's days in the rotation, if not the
majors, could be over before his 31st birthday on Thursday.
With Redman on the mound, Milwaukee manager Ned Yost took
the opportunity to give Geoff Jenkins and Scott Podsednik a rest,
replacing them with Mark Smith and Brady Clark, respectively. ...
Sexson, who is 6-foot-8, has become an odd site during batting
practice by fielding groundballs at shortstop. Yost said Sexson
wasn't goofing around. "That's for a purpose there. That's to get
his arm stretched out," he said.
