Brewers Break Out Brooms, Sweep Astros on Miller's Blast

Damian Miller hit his first homer of the season, a three-run shot that sailed into the Milwaukee bullpen in the eleventh inning and lifted the Brewers over the Houston Astros 6-to-3 at Miller Park today.

The Brewers finished up an 8-and-1 homestand, won for the 12th time in 14 games overall and improved the National League's best record to 46-and-32.

Houston went 2-and-7 on its road trip and was swept by Milwaukee in a three-game series for the first time.

Miller launched a one-out homer to left-center field that was speared on the fly by Brewers bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel. Miller hit the second game-ending home run of his career, with the other coming in 2000 for Arizona.

With one out in the eleventh, Bill Hall doubled off the wall in left-center -- he stood at the plate for a moment, watching the ball fly, and had to hustle into second. After Geoff Jenkins was intentionally walked, Miller connected off Dave Borkowski (1-and-3).

Dave Bush (6-and-6) pitched the final two innings in his first relief appearance of the season. He has made 15 starts.
