The Brewers bounced back from adversity tonight, scoring two runs each in the fifth, sixth and seventh to turn a 5-1 deficit into a 7-5 advantage and making a winner out of Kameron Loe for the first time in over two years.

The offense came from unlikely sources tonight: Chris Narveson and Jim Edmonds (forced into action on a sore Achillies) singled in runs in the fifth, Carlos Gomez and Alcides Escobar drove in the runs in the sixth, and Edmonds came back to the plate in the seventh and hit a two run homer to put the Brewers ahead for good.

Edmonds was forced into action when Corey Hart left tonight's game early. While attempting to make a sliding catch on a foul ball near the stands in right, Hart slammed his right (throwing) hand into the wall and may have injured his wrist. X-rays on the joint came back negative, but he's still expected to undergo an MRI tomorrow.
