The Brewers got another dose of Bad Manny tonight, but the bats carried them through it.

In a series of events that looked very similar to yesterday's game, the Brewers jumped ahead early on Prince Fielder's three run home run, and turned the order in the first inning en route to a 5-0 lead. The difference tonight: They kept scoring, adding additional runs in the second, third and fourth.

Meanwhile, Manny Parra kept it close, allowing six runs, all earned, on ten hits and four walks in six innings. David Weathers pitched 1.2 scoreless innings in relief, Todd Coffey retired the only batter he faced and Trevor Hoffman struck out the side in the ninth for his 28th save. The Brewers have won nine of Parra's 23 starts this season, and he's collected the win in each of them.

At the plate, six Brewers were on base multiple times, including four Brewers who picked up multiple hits. Felipe Lopez went 0-for-4 and was the only Brewer starter without a hit.
