Brewers Come Back to Beat D'Backs 5-4



From Sportsline.com:

The Milwaukee Brewers are more confident than they've been in a while and having more early success than they've had in almost 20 years.

Carlos Lee knocked in J.J. Hardy with an RBI single in the ninth to give the Brewers a 5-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday. Milwaukee is now 5-0 for the first time since 1987 and just the third time in franchise history.

"Were expecting to win every time we go out there," said Hardy, who had three hits. "It's a much different feeling than last year when we didn't expect to win all the time."

With one out in the ninth, Hardy doubled down the left-field line off of Diamondback reliever Luis Vizcaino (0-1). Geoff Jenkins was walked intentionally to put runners at first and second. On a 1-2 pitch, Lee lined a single to center and Hardy beat Eric Byrnes' throw to the plate.

"I've got two strikes on me and I'm just trying to put the ball in play," said Lee, who is hitting .467 this season. "I've been having some pretty good success so far this season and today it really paid off."

Vizcaino said the pitch to Lee was a fastball that was supposed to be outside, but caught too much of the plate.

"He is hitting the ball good," Vizcaino said.
