Brewers Split Series With Win

Getting hit by the ball instead of hitting it proved to be a winning formula for the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

Chris Capuano took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning and won his seventh straight decision, and the Milwaukee Brewers took advantage of wildness by San Francisco's pitchers to beat the Giants 5-1 Sunday.

Noah Lowry (6-11) and Kevin Correia combined in the sixth inning to walk three and hit three batters, and the Brewers took a 4-0 lead with just one hit.

"I've never seen an inning like that," Milwaukee's Damian Miller said. "It was meant to be our day when that kind of stuff happens."

After Lowry struck out Brady Clark leading off the sixth, he walked Lyle Overbay and Carlos Lee and hit Ricky Weeks on the left knee, loading the bases. Lowry hit Geoff Jenkins on the right elbow, forcing in the first run of the game.

The Brewers will open up a series against the Mets on Tuesday as Tomo Ohka (6-6) faces Victor Zambrano (5-9).
"I got ahead and picked at the corners," Lowry said. "I just didn't get the job done. In a tie game, I have to do a better job."
Bill Hall lined a single to right field to score Overbay to make it 2-0.
