Milwaukee Brewers starter Ben Sheets and Los Angeles Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley were tossing goose eggs at the opposition yesterday, until Ben Sheets blew up in the 7th. 

Sheets surrendered home runs to Andruw Jones, Jeff Kent and Gary Bennett during a six-run seventh inning, giving the Dodgers a 7-2 win over the Brewers and two of three games in the series. 

Bennett wasn't even scheduled to play but got the start when third baseman Blake DeWitt's lower back started hurting just before the game.

On the same day that he signed a new long-term contract, outfielder Ryan Braun clubbed his 10th home run of the season in the loss for the Brewers.

Milwaukee opens a weekend series at Fenway Park in Boston against the Red Sox.
