Randy Wolf couldn't get on track today and struggled through five innings.  He loaded the bases in the second and third innings and allowed one run in both frames.  The run in the second was unearned as a result of Alcides Escobar's eleventh error of the season.  Three more runs scored in the fourth on a Franklin Gutierrez double and Jose Lopez home run.  After Wolf departed, five Brewers relievers combined to keep the Mariners scoreless the rest of the way.

The Brewers offense was silent except for a quirky third inning.  Randy Wolf doubled and Rickie Weeks walked before Corey Hart doubled into left-center.  Weeks scored on the play, knocking the ball away from Mariners catcher Rob Johnson in the process.  Pitcher Doug Fister's throw to third got away from Lopez, allowing Hart to score as well.  Prince Fielder followed the wild play with his fifteen home run of the season and eighth in the month of June.  That was all the offense the Brewers could muster.  Brian Sweeney, pitching in the majors for the first time since 2006, took over for Fister in the fifth and went four scoreless to pick up the win.  Brandon League pitched a perfect ninth for his second save.
