Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Lorenzo Cain drove in three runs, including his first career RBI, and Casey McGehee drilled a three-run homer as part of a four-RBI afternoon, as Milwaukee ripped Houston, 11-6, to complete a three- game sweep at Miller Park.

Ryan Braun provided a two-run single and ended with two hits and three runs scored. Prince Fielder singled and walked three times, scoring three runs, while Alcides Escobar contributed an RBI and two hits to give theBrewers their fifth win in the last six games.

Yovani Gallardo (11-5) beat Houston for the second time this season, going six innings and striking out seven while surrendering four runs on eight hits. He walked one in upping his career slate versus the Astros to 7-2 in nine starts.

Wesley Wright (1-2) was pounded for seven runs and five hits with four walks in just 2 1/3 innings. Michael Bourn registered three hits, drove in two runs and scored twice and Carlos Lee and Jeff Keppinger each had two hits and two RBI in the loss, the Astros' fourth straight.
