No sweep, but still a pretty good series.

The Brewers jumped out to an early lead today, including a leadoff home run from Rickie Weeks, and led 2-0 in the third before Jeff Suppan allowed four runs, including a two-run shot by Alfonso Soriano, and the two teams were done scoring for the day.

All told, Suppan allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks in six innings, getting credited with a quality start. The Brewers got a perfect inning from Carlos Villanueva and two more scoreless frames from Mark DiFelice. After allowing a run in each of the first two innings, Sean Marshall settled down and allowed just those two runs on five hits in five innings, before getting four scoreless innings of relief from Angel Guzman, Carlos Marmol and Kevin Gregg.
