Brewers Beat Braves 3-2

From Sportsline.com:

The way things were going on the Brewers infield on Monday night, Chris Capuano was fortunate to be a flyball pitcher.

Capuano pitched seven strong innings as Milwaukee beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2, but his handiwork nearly was frittered away by sloppy fielding.

No big deal, Capuano said.

"It's going to happen sometimes," Capuano said. "And sometimes I'm going to give up five and they're going to score seven."

Capuano (3-2) allowed one run and three hits in the victory, and Corey Koskie hit his first home run for the Brewers in the seventh to put Milwaukee ahead 3-1.

Matt Wise relieved Capuano in the eighth, allowing a single and a walk to lead off the inning, and Rickie Weeks flubbed a potential double-play at second base -- his second error of the game and team-high seventh of the season.

With the bases loaded and nobody out, Weeks and the Brewers got another shot at a double play and turned it, but Pete Orr scored to cut the Brewers' lead to 3-2.

Wise got Andruw Jones to ground out to end the inning.

"That was no doubt the biggest moment of the game," Capuano said. "I was so happy to see him get out of that."

Derrick Turnbow pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save in six chances.
