Brewers Win in 9th, 3-2



Everyone in the Milwaukee Brewers' dugout knew Brady Clark was planning to bunt home the winning run. The only question was on which pitch.

Clark's suicide squeeze on the second pitch from Akinori Otsuka (1-6) scored Corey Hart from third with one out in the ninth inning, giving Milwaukee a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Yost said he told Clark before he left the dugout that the squeeze would be called. Once Clark reached the plate, the debate started in the dugout.

"I told our guys it would be the second pitch," Yost said. "Lyle (Overbay) said, 'Do it the third pitch.' I said, 'No. Do it on the second pitch.'"

The first pitch from Otsuka was high and inside for a ball. The second pitch was on the plate, and Clark put down a perfect bunt.

"It was a good pitch to bunt," Clark said. "You're just trying to find the ball and get the bat on it."

Wes Helms singled to lead off the inning. Hart ran for Helms and stole second, and then moved to third on Chad Moeller's sacrifice. After pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks walked, Clark bunted and Otsuka attempted a late flip to catcher Miguel Olivo but Hart scored standing.
