Braden Looper carried a two-hitter into the 7th last night before giving way to the bullpen. Looper picked up the win against his former team and improved to 4-2.
Jason Kendall became the eighth full-time catcher to reach 2,000 hits for his career to help the Brewers go to 20-5 after a 4-9 start. Rookie Mat Gamel also slugged a 3-run homer, which is the first of his Major League Career.
The news wasn't all good for the Brewers though. They lost second baseman Rickie Weeks for the season with a left wrist injury. Weeks was hitting .272 with 9 home runs and 24 rbi's. He hurt himself while striking out on Sunday.
