The heavy-hitting Milwaukee Brewers offense is going to be missing a big bat when the season begins. First baseman Corey Hart will miss the next three to four months with an injured right knee that requires surgery, the team announced Friday. Hart's knee started to swell up during offseason workouts, and an MRI revealed a torn meniscus and other damage to the joint that will be surgically repaired Tuesday. It's difficult timing for the two-time all-star, who is entering the final year of his contract.

MILWAUKEE - Prince Fielder hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career, including a two-run shot in the seventh inning that lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Fielder's final homer was the least impressive of the three, barely sailing over the wall in right field after he hit monster shots in the third and fifth innings. But it was the last one that made the biggest difference, breaking a 4-4 tie. With the win, the Brewers crept closer to securing home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

ST. LOUIS - On the day he pitches, Chris Carpenter can be an ornery cuss. He prowls the mound, barks at hitters, and on at least one occasion has been known to invite a basepath collision. Though just an 11-game winner for the St. Louis Cardinals, the 36-year-old righthander has been in dominating mode since midseason. Apparently in the Milwaukee Brewers' heads, too, heading into a matchup of aces in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday night against 17-game winner Yovani Gallardo.

In his 20th start of the season, Bronson Arroyo finally found his 2006 All-Star form. Arroyo shut out Atlanta for seven innings, Jeff Keppinger capitalized on a rare start by hitting a two-run double and the visiting Cincinnati Reds held on to beat the Atlanta Braves, 6-5, last night. Arroyo (4-10) matched his season low by giving up only three hits and matched his season high with nine strikeouts. He did not allow a run in a start for the first time since Sept. 25 against the Chicago Cubs.

Corey Hart's big contribution sure didn't fly very far. Hart hit a three-run, inside-the-park homer announced at 206 feet and Russell Branyan followed with a conventional shot to lift the surging Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 victory over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday for their sixth straight win. "That's got to be the shortest home run, maybe, in Brewers history, so I've got something going," Hart joked. After Gabe Kapler singled with two outs in the fourth, Ryan Braun hit an RBI triple and Prince Fielder walked to bring up Hart, who flared a pitch from reliever Edgar Gonzalez down the rightfield line.

It read 1-2-3 in the score book, but Corey Hart's first-inning double-play ground ball delivered such a knockout blow to the Milwaukee Brewers last night that it should have gone all the way to 10. "That was huge," Craig Counsell said in the near-silence of the Brewers' locker room after a 5-2 loss to the Phillies left them in a two-games-to-none hole in this best-of-five National League division series. The first inning, when Phils starter Brett Myers' adrenaline was pumping like a fresh gusher, looked as if it was going to be one of those rare times when the Brewers, who are reliant on the home run, put together a big inning without one. With one out, Ray Durham walked on four pitches.

Hart starts the Brewers' train The Milwaukee Brewers rewarded Corey Hart for his turn-around season on Monday with a $26.5 million, three-year contract extension through 2013. The 28-year-old rightfielder is batting .288 with 23 home runs and 72 RBIs in 92 games. Milwaukee also has given contract extensions to leftfielder Ryan Braun and starter Yovani Gallardo, and GM Bob Melvin said the team has had discussions regarding a new deal for second baseman Rickie Weeks. "Hopefully, I start the train and other guys lock up," Hart said.

PHOENIX - A pair of rookies made sure the Milwaukee Brewers never stood much of a chance Tuesday night. Now the comeback-king Arizona Diamondbacks have one. Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam off Shaun Marcum following an intentional walk and fellow rookie Josh Collmenter dominated Milwaukee again, helping the Diamondbacks beat the Brewers, 8-1, Tuesday to prevent a three-game National League division series sweep. "It was pretty cool," Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder said of the success by Arizona's kids.

JAMIE MOYER turned in a vintage performance in becoming the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league game. The 49-year-old Moyer (1-2) threw seven masterful innings and Dexter Fowler hit a two-run homer, helping the Colorado Rockies hold on for a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. The former Phillie was sharp all evening as he picked up his 268th career win, tying him with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer for 34th on the career list. Relying on a consistent cutter and mixing in a 78-mph fastball, the cunning lefty gave up just six hits and two runs - both unearned - as he kept the Padres hitters at bay and off balance.
