Brewers Score Nine in 6th To Rally Past Astros

Johnny Estrada launched a grand slam while the Milwaukee Brewers were erupting for nine runs in the sixth inning of an 11-to-5 victory over Houston.

The Astros carried a 4-to-2 lead into the sixth before the Brewers scored three runs on right fielder Luke Scott's error. Tony Graffanino (graf-ah-NEE'-noh) followed with his fourth career pinch-hit homer before Estrada hit his first career grand slam.

Carlos Lee's two-run homer snapped a two-all tie in the top of the sixth before the Brewers improved to 11-and-2 since they were no-hit by Detroit's Justin Verlander.

Astros second baseman Craig Biggio went 1-for-4 to move within three hits over becoming the 27th player with three-thousand.

Matt Wise worked a hitless sixth to get to 2-and-1.

Wandy Rodriguez is 4-and-7 after allowing six runs and seven hits in five-plus innings.
