Maybe Braun should have taken the day off. Less than 24 hours after needing x-rays on his wrist, Braun was back in the lineup but didn't look like he belonged there, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout and two pop outs, and twice leaving runners in scoring position.

Manny Parra overcame some early struggles to produce a quality start, allowing three runs on seven hits and five walks in 6.2 innings, striking out six. The Brewers, though, never found a way to bust the game open against Todd Wellemeyer or any of the five relievers that followed him. The Brewers managed just eight hits and two walks in the game.

Ryan Franklin allowed two men to reach in the ninth, but recorded the last four outs for his 12th save.
