Brewers Whoop D'Backs 14-2



The Milwaukee Brewers are loose, relaxed and ready for the stretch drive.
Tomo Ohka pitched seven strong innings, Bill Hall had a career-high five hits and Chad Moeller drove in four runs to lead the Brewers to a 14-2 rout of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday. "Most of our wins have been close games," Moeller said. "For us to jump out there and continue to score runs was the biggest thing. If we do put up a big number, we normally kind of stop after that and become complacement, and nobody did that today."

Hall was already thinking about Friday's series opener in Houston, one of four teams ahead of the Brewers in the wild-card race.

"Tomorrow I'm going to face Roy Oswalt, and I can't think about the five hits I got today, because he's a really good pitcher," Hall said.

Jeff Cirillo went 3-for-4 with two walks and three RBI, including a two-run homer against reliever Jason Bulger in the sixth inning to make it 14-0.

Carlos Lee also had a two-run shot and Ohka drove in two runs to help the Brewers win for the seventh time in 10 games. Milwaukee had 19 hits and tied a season high with its 14 runs. The first time was a 14-5 victory at Cincinnati on Sept. 7, and both big games followed 2-1 losses.
Rick Helling (2-0) will face Roy Oswalt (17-12) as the Brewers open a series against the Astros.
