Brewers Can't Pull Off Sweep, Lose 0-3

Ohka gave up a run in the third on a wild pitch, and first baseman Lyle Overbay's throwing error made it 2-0 in the seventh. An errant pickoff attempt by reliever Julio Santana allowed Troy Glaus to score in the eighth.

"Defensively, we gave them the three runs that they got," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "We just didn't play very solid defensively. That was the difference in the game."

Ohka, acquired on June 10 for infielder Junior Spivey, gave up two runs -- one earned -- four hits and three walks in seven innings.

"Ohka was great," catcher Chad Moeller said. "You can't ask a starter to do more than what he did. He threw ground balls, got quick outs."

Milwaukee (50-52), which hasn't finished with a winning record since 1992, was trying to reach .500 for the first time since May 28.

"If we get it two days from now, we're not stopping the season, jumping up and down and everybody going home," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "We've got 59 more games to play."

The Brewers outhit the Diamondbacks 8-5. Each of the Brewers were singles.

Victor Santos (3-10) will go up against Brad Hennessey (3-3) as the Brewers open a series against the SF Giants.
