Brewers Back With Win


Sheets brushed off a poor first inning, Prince Fielder hit his league-leading 17th homer and J-J Hardy had the go-ahead single to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Atlanta Braves 5-to-4 tonight at Miller Park.

The Brewers ended a six-game losing streak.

Smoltz, who recorded his 200th victory on Thursday, left the game in the fourth inning after hurting his shoulder while warming up for the inning and re-injuring his right pinkie finger in his previous at-bat. The Braves said he was taken out as a precaution.

The score was tied at 3-to-3 at the time.

The Brewers took the lead for good in the sixth on Hardy's R-B-I single.

Sheets pitched despite leaving his previous appearance with a blister on his right middle finger. He went six innings before the Brewers relievers took over.
