I find it strange, but the Brewers scored 6 runs but only had 2 rbi... I can't remember seeing that stat before. RBI: Lee (95), Weeks (31). The Marlins really screwed up in the field tonight...... MILWAUKEE -- With the season winding down and the Brewers on the verge of exorcising 12 consecutive losing seasons, they'll take every win they can get.

Even the ugly ones, like Wednesday's 6-4 triumph over the Marlins. A crowd of 33,323 at Miller Park delighted in Florida's four errors, which led to four of the Brewers' six runs.

Second baseman Rickie Weeks atoned for a third-inning error that set up Carlos Delgado's go-ahead, three-run home run with a go-ahead hit of his own. Weeks lined a two-out single in the sixth inning that skipped past Marlins right fielder Jeff Conine, plating two runs and giving the Brewers a lead that stood.

The go-ahead rally came just in time to make a winner of Tomo Ohka (9-7), who pitched six innings and allowed four runs. He snapped an 11-start winless streak against the Marlins and beat them for the first time since May 2003.

Ohka had lots of help. Florida committed three errors in the first inning, tying a club record while spotting the Brewers three unearned runs and a 3-1 lead.

Lyle Overbay hit a grounder that bounced off second baseman Luis Castillo's chest and into right field, leaving the Brewers with runners at second and third and one out. Both runners scored when A.J. Burnett (12-7) threw away Carlos Lee's tapper to the mound, and Lee scored when shortstop Alex Gonzalez couldn't get rid of the throw on a Bill Hall grounder with two outs. But back came the Marlins. Juan Pierre led off the third inning with a ground ball to Weeks that was ruled an infield hit, and he took second when Weeks' throw sailed ,..... http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/news/boxscore.jsp?gid=2005_08_24_flomlb_milmlb_1&c_id=mil

Burnett had his first bad outing in a while. He has been on fire ever since those trade rumors.
