Brewers Win in Extra Innings 6-5

From Sportsline.com:

Before closer Derrick Turnbow even had time to worry about his blown save, the Milwaukee Brewers were back in front.

Prince Fielder's RBI single off Tom Gordon in the 10th inning sent Milwaukee to a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.

Ryan Howard had a tying, two-run double in the ninth against Turnbow, who had converted 14 of his first 15 save chances. But the Brewers answered quickly against Gordon (2-2).

Carlos Lee started the inning with a double to left and scored on Fielder's liner off the right-field fence.

"We've been battling," manager Ned Yost said. "Our guys did a nice job."

Geoff Jenkins had three hits and three RBI, and Bill Hall hit a two-run shot for Milwaukee, which had lost seven of its last nine on the road.

Turnbow (2-1) got the victory despite allowing two runs in his only inning. Jose Capellan got two outs in the 10th before giving way to Brian Shouse. With the bases loaded, Shouse retired Chris Roberson on a routine fly for his second career save and first since 2003 with Texas.
