Brewers Win 12-2



With Ben Sheets injured, Milwaukee's ace is Chris Capuano.

The left-hander became the Brewers' first 15-game winner in 12 years, pitching Milwaukee to a 12-2 victory Friday night over the San Diego Padres. Geoff Jenkins hit a grand slam to cap a seven-run second inning and Carlos Lee added his 30th homer.

"Our ace is down, but that doesn't mean we don't have to play the rest of the season," Capuano said. "We all have got to try to pick up the slack collectively as a pitching staff."

But even Sheets, who tore a back muscle last week and is on the disabled list, hasn't been able to put up the kind of numbers Capuano (15-9) is compiling. He is Milwaukee's first 15-game winner since Cal Eldred went 16-16 in 1993.

And this is Capuano's first full big-league season -- he was injured for part of 2004 and made only 17 starts. He's quietly compiled a 3.52 ERA with 143 strikeouts in 185 innings, and probably five starts left.
