    Milwaukee 6, Philadelphia 4

    MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Mark Smith hit a tiebreaking three-run home run in the eighth inning after reliever Mike DeJean worked out of a bases-loaded jam with no outs in the top half, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 Tuesday night.

    Jim Thome hit his 34th homer for the Phillies, who had their five-game winning streak snapped.

    With the score 3-all, Richie Sexson singled off reliever Turk Wendell (3-3) to open the eighth. Brady Clark sacrificed him over and Keith Ginter was intentionally walked to set up a possible double play.

    Smith, 0-for-4 as a pinch-hitter this season, then hit his first homer of the year and gave Milwaukee a 6-3 lead.

    DeJean (4-7) came on for Leo Estrella with the bases loaded, none out and the score tied at 3 in the top of the eighth. He struck out Chase Utley and pinch-hitter Ricky Ledee and got Jimmy Rollins to pop out to end the inning.

    Dan Kolb gave up Placido Polanco's RBI groundout in the ninth before finishing for his ninth save in nine chances.

    Brewers' starter Ben Sheets left the game after one inning with a right rotator cuff strain, but a team spokesman said the move was precautionary and Sheets was expected to make his next start Sunday.

    Philadelphia starter Kevin Millwood gave up three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two in six innings.

    Geoff Jenkins hit a two-run homer in the first, his 23rd of the season, scoring Scott Podsednik, to give Milwaukee a 2-0 lead. Milwaukee made it 3-0 in the third when Podsednik walked and scored on Bill Hall's double to right field.

    Bobby Abreu walked to lead off the sixth and scored on Thome's homer, cutting the Brewers' lead to 3-2. The Phillies tied it in the top of the eighth when Mike Lieberthal was hit by a pitch from Estrella with the bases loaded, scoring Polanco from third.

    Game notes

    It was Smith's first home run since hitting one Oct. 7, 2001, against the New York Mets, when he was a member of the Montreal Expos. ... Before the game, the Brewers traded 2B Eric Young to San Francisco for RHP Greg Bruso. Bruso was assigned to Double-A Huntsville. The Brewers purchased the contract of OF Jason Conti from Triple-A Indianapolis to take Young's spot on the roster. Conti pinch-hit in the seventh and singled. ... Thome's 34 HRs ties him with Deron Johnson for the most by a Phillies first baseman. Johnson hit 34 HRs in 1971. ... Brewers RF John Vander Wal was scratched just before the game due to inflammation in his left elbow. ... Brewers manager Ned Yost turned 48 Tuesday. ... The game was the first in the Phillies' 13-game road trip, their longest of the season.
