The Diamondbacks trailed 4-1 after six innings, but scored five
in the seventh, two in the eighth and six in the ninth. Arizona had
21 hits, with seven players getting two apiece. Tony Clark had two
doubles and Kelly Stinnett two triples.
Reggie Abercrombie homered and drove in two runs, and Clark and
Stinnett each had two RBI.
"It got ugly in a hurry," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "Our
defense was less than spectacular, especially our outfield defense.
And we didn't throw strikes. When we did, they weren't in good
Brad Nelson had three of the Brewers' 17 hits and drove in two
runs. Corey Hart had two hits with a double and three RBI.
One bright spot for the Brewers was the work of starter Victor
Santos, the likely No. 3 starter.
Rebounding from a poor first start in which he allowed six runs
in less than two innings, Santos pitched three scoreless innings.
He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out three.
"I felt a lot better than I did last time," Santos said. "I
had better command of my pitches this time. My fastball was still a
little off, but I was able to make pitches when I had to. I'm
satisfied with the way things worked out."
There was a scary moment in the bottom of the sixth when Brewers
catcher Julio Mosquera was hit on the left side of his face by a
fastball from Arizona's Phil Stockman.
Mosquera remained on the ground for several minutes. He left
with a bad bruise and swelling.
"It's always scary when something like that happens," Yost
said. "You knew it hit him square in the face. You could hear it
hit his flesh."
