Brewers Sweep Indians in 6-3 Walf-Off Win

From Sportsline.com:

Carlos Lee had a special father's day dedication to make after his first career walk-off home run lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

"I was hitting it for myself," Lee said with a smile. "I'm a father, too."

Lee's three-run blast in the bottom of the ninth broke a 3-3 tie, allowing the Brewers to complete a three-game sweep of the Indians.

It was the latest in a series of home comebacks for the Brewers, who have trailed in 20 of their 24 victories at Miller Park this season. Geoff Jenkins hit a two-run single in the bottom of the ninth to beat Cleveland on Saturday.

"They don't fold up when they get behind a little bit," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "They keep after it."

With the victory, Milwaukee has climbed back to the .500 mark for the first time since May 30. After breaking an eight-game losing streak earlier this month, the Brewers have won nine of their last 13.

"We bounced back from that little streak really well, and have been playing pretty good baseball," Yost said.
