Brewers Beat Astros Again 6-4

From Sportsline.com:

Dave Bush took care of the offense himself Saturday night with the biggest hit of the game.

Bush pitched seven solid innings and capped a rally with a two-out, two-run single to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 win over the Houston Astros.

Bush (9-9) allowed four runs and eight hits with five strikeouts and no walks.

"Bushy pitched a good game," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "To get us into the eighth inning was a great job."

Francisco Cordero, who has not allowed a run since being acquired July 28 from Texas in the Carlos Lee deal, recorded the final four outs for his ninth save.

The Brewers broke a third-place tie with Houston in the NL Central and trail wild-card leading Cincinnati by four games.

Houston's Willy Taveras extended his hitting streak to 22 games in the first with a single and scored the game's first run on a ground out by Mike Lamb.

Bush's single down the right-field line was one of only two hits in the four-run fourth inning for the Brewers.

"He's been 'raking' lately," Brewers shortstop Bill Hall said. "I was surpassed they got him out (tonight). Bases loaded, that was a big hit."
