Brewers Beat Twins 3-1

Despite getting himself into several jams, Chris Capuano stayed in control Friday night against the reeling Minnesota Twins.

Capuano pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings and Damian Miller snapped an 0-for-16 streak with a solo home run as the Milwaukee Brewers won their third consecutive game, 3-1.

One of the jams Capuano (7-6) worked out of came when Minnesota loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth.

"That's the thing about Capuano: He's a real competitor," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "The tougher the situation, the tougher he gets.

"Bases loaded, nobody out," Yost said. "It doesn't get any tougher than that."

Milwaukee's victory was tempered when third baseman Jeff Cirillo broke a bone in his left hand when hit by a pitch in the eighth inning. Yost said Cirillo would miss four to six weeks.

Tomorrow Tomo Ohka (5-4) will face Johan Santana (7-3)
