Brewers Lose in Extras

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Humberto Quintero hit a two-out, two-run double in the 10th inning to lift the Houston Astros over the Milwaukee Brewers 9-6 on Saturday night.

Quintero's big hit off Sean Green (0-1) came the inning after he couldn't tag Ryan Braun quickly enough in a play at the plate that completed Milwaukee's rally from a three-run deficit.

Houston snapped a four-game losing streak at Miller Park and won its first game when allowing four runs or more this season.

Brandon Lyon (1-1) and the Astros bullpen blew another lead, but Quintero picked the group back up.

Braun hit a two-run homer in the seventh to extend his streak of reaching base safely to 20 games and Prince Fielder added two RBIs to give him an NL-best 21, but it wasn't enough.
