Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan
• Summary: Ben Sheets became the second pitcher in Brewers history with 1,000 career strikeouts, fanning seven in 5 2/3 innings of Milwaukee's 6-5 victory over the Tigers.
• Goats: Detroit's pitching staff had problems all day. Starter Chad Durbin lasted just 3 2/3 innings -- matching his shortest outing this season -- allowed eight hits and seemed fortunate to give up just two runs. Wilfredo Ledezma replaced Durbin and gave up three runs -- one when he dropped the ball and was charged with a balk and another on a wild pitch -- and then Jason Grilli allowed Corey Hart's solo homer in the eighth.
• Figure this: The Brewers won two straight for just the third time since starting the season 24-10.
• Quotable: "To beat these guys on the road after being no-hit is going to be a great confidence boost. It isn't like we did this against one of the worst teams in baseball -- they were in the World Series last year." -- Hart
