Brewers Lose in Extra Innings

Milwaukee failed to put a runner on base -- with only three balls being hit to the outfield -- over the final 9 1/3 innings. J.J. Hardy, who had a two-out, run-scoring single in the third, was the Brewers' final baserunner.

"To go 12 innings, and for us not get a hit past the third inning ... it's kind of unbelievable," Brewers manager Ned Yost said.

"It shows that they were throwing good pitches to everybody, and we didn't make any adjustments," Milwaukee's Bill Hall said.

Burnett struck out every Brewer in the starting lineup at least once.

"I knew we had a lot of strikeouts, but I just wanted to win the game," Burnett said. "This was a big win."
Victor Santos (2-8) will face Brian Moehler (3-6) on Thursday in the last game of the series.
