Edmonds HR LIfts Brewers to Win

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jim Edmonds replaced injured All-Star Corey Hart and hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the Washington Nationals 7-5 on Friday night.

Hart hurt his right wrist in the third when he crashed into the wall down the right-field line chasing Cristian Guzman's fly ball.

Milwaukee manager Ken Macha and assistant trainer Dan Wright went out to check on Hart, who threw three warmup tosses before deciding to finish the inning. Edmonds pinch-hit for Hart in the bottom of the third.

X-rays were negative, but the Brewers said Hart will undergo an MRI on Saturday.
