Brewers Avoid Sweep With 5-3 Win

From Sportsline.com:

It's becoming routine for the Milwaukee Brewers to provide late-inning excitement at Miller Park.

Carlos Lee's two-run double keyed a four-run seventh inning to help the Brewers beat Minnesota 5-3 on Sunday, hours after the Twins won funding for a new stadium.

The Brewers are 17-9 at Miller Park, and have come from behind in 15 of those victories.

"They don't panic when they fall behind," manager Ned Yost said. "They know that somewhere over the course of the game they are going to put something together.

"We weren't doing much, but guys were still up, and we knew that at any time we could break loose," he said.

Chris Capuano (5-3) won for the first time in four starts. The left-hander pitched seven innings, giving up three runs, eight hits and two walks while striking out four.

He has pitched quality starts in all 10 of his outings this season, and has a 2.78 ERA.

"We feel really good about the way Cappy's been throwing," Yost said. "He can give us seven or eight strong innings, and that's exactly what he did."

Derrick Turnbow pitched the ninth for his 14th save in 15 chances.
