Brewers keep on the winning path
The Milwaukee Brewers have a season-high five-game winning streak after beating the Washington Nationals 6-to-4 Tuesday night at Miller Park.
Prince Fielder broke a 1-1 tie with a three-run homer in the sixth inning.
The Nationals scored two in the seventh to get to within a run, but the Brewers pulled away in the eighth with solo shots by Johnny Estrada and J.J. Hardy - who extended his hitting streak to 19 games. That's the fourth-longest in Brewer history.
