The Brewers took advantage of a run-saving close call in the fifth, then rallied for three runs in the seventh, tying the game on Prince Fielder's two-run single and going ahead on Corey Hart's RBI double, both with two outs. The 'pen hung on for the win, tossing three scoreless frames to secure the rubber game vs. the Astros in Houston.
