Injury and insult on Sunday as pitcher Wolf is hurt and Brewers are swept by Houston

Posted:

HOUSTON (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Jason Michaels connected for a grand slam in the seventh inning and the Houston Astros beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Sunday to complete the three-game sweep.

The Astros trailed 2-0 before Michaels' drive to the first row of the Crawford Boxes in left field. It was his seventh homer of the season.

Houston has won five straight games while Milwaukee has dropped its last five.

Brewers starter Randy Wolf was cruising before he was hit on his left wrist by Hunter Pence's single with none out in the seventh, forcing the left-hander out of the game. He was replaced by Kameron Loe (1-2), who walked Carlos Lee and Chris Johnson to load the bases before Zach Braddock took over.

That set up Michaels' second career pinch-hit grand slam.
