Brewers Win 2-0

Tomo Ohka said he had "nothing special" during warm-ups. That certainly changed once the game started.

Ohka pitched four-hit ball for eight innings, Rickie Weeks drove in both runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers returned to .500 by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0 Sunday.

Weeks' two-out, two-run double in the third inning helped the Brewers (56-56) win for the sixth time in their last eight games.

Ohka couldn't have predicted his strong start.

"I felt good in warm-ups, but nothing special," said Ohka, who improved to 3-3 since being obtained by Milwaukee on June 10. "The result was good though."

Ohka (7-6) outpitched Vicente Padilla, striking out a season-high nine without a walk. Derrick Turnbow, a former Phillies farmhand, got the final three outs for his 24th save in 27 opportunities.

"That was something special," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "(Ohka) was dead-on from the first pitch and was lights-out all game. They may have hit one ball, maybe two, hard the whole game."
