The Milwaukee Brewers are excited about their 2-game win streak after Thursday's 7-3 win over the Washington Nationals at Miller Park. It's the first time the Brewers won back to back games since June 29-30 against the New York Mets.
Yovani Gallardo allowed 3 runs on 5 hits in 7 innings of work. Gallardo's 11 strikeouts were 1-short of his career high. The only blemmish for Gallardo is the 3-run homer he surrendered to Ryan Zimmerman in the 4th.
Prince Fielder clubbed his 25th homer of the season and Craig Counsell, not known for his power, clubbed his 4th home run this season to lead the Brewers. The victory allowed the Brewers to climb back to .500 at 51-51.
The Brewers also won a day game at Miller Park for the first time since July 4 in Chicago. They're 12-22 in days games and have the lowest winning percentage (.353) in the majors.
The Brewers now open a 9-game road trip, starting tonight in San Diego.
