Astros Can't Maintain Comeback, Lose To Brewers In 10th Inning

Houston, TX (Sports Network) – Mat Gamel doubled home the go-ahead run and scored in the 10th inning as Milwaukee recovered from blowing a five-run lead to come back and beat Houston, 8-6, to salvage the last of a three-game set.

Ryan Braun went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three runs batted in and Rickie Weeks belted a home run and scored twice for the Brewers, who halted a six-game slide at Minute Maid Park.

John Axford (8-1) grabbed the win with two scoreless innings in relief as Milwaukee won for just a fourth time all season when trailing after eight innings.

Matt Lindstrom (2-5) suffered the loss after being unable to retire any of the three batters he faced for the Astros, who had a three-game win streak halted.

Angel Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI to extend his hitting streak to a career-high nine games for Houston, which bunched all six of its runs and hits in the fifth inning.
