Brewers knock off Astros with 6th inning shelling
The Milwaukee Brewers scored nine runs in the sixth inning Tuesday night to crush the Houston Astros 11-5 at Miller Park.
Johnny Estrada highlighted the rally with his first career grand slam. It was the Brewers' fifth four-bagger, after they were the only Major League team not to hit one a year ago.
Ryan Braun fell a triple short of the cycle, going 3 for 4 with a two-run blast and Corey Hart had two singles to extend his hitting streak to 13 games.
