Fielder sets Brewers' new RBI mark as Milwaukee beats Houston 7-2

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jeff Suppan pitched seven strong innings and Jody Gerut<s pinch-hit single in the seventh inning drove in the go-ahead run to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

It was the fourth straight win for Milwaukee, which hadn't won that many in a row since May 16-19. The Brewers broke open a close game with five runs in the seventh inning as they sent 10 batters to the plate.

Suppan (7-10) gave up five hits and struck out a season high seven. He dominated the Astros during the middle part of the game, retiring 11 straight before Hunter Pence's homer in the seventh that gave Houston a 2-1 lead.
