Brewers fall just short of comeback 8-5 against Houston
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Geoff Blum drove in four runs, Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer in the eighth and the Houston Astros rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-5 on Sunday.
Blum hit a three-run homer in the sixth and an RBI single in the ninth for Houston, which managed to get the win despite a shaky start by Roy Oswalt. Lance Berkman walked twice and scored three times.
The loss ended Milwaukee's three-game winning streak -- its longest since June -- and denied the Brewers (58-59) a chance to climb above .500 for the first time since July 25. The Brewers last won four in a row when they won seven straight from May 12-19.
