MILWAUKEE - Jonathan Lucroy drove in the go-ahead run with a squeeze, and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they could bunt as well as bash, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-4, Sunday to take a two-games-to-none lead in their NL division series. Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer, and fellow slugger Prince Fielder added an RBI single for Milwaukee. But the brawny Brewers, especially Lucroy, also excel at the little things. Lucroy's safety squeeze keyed a five-run sixth inning and came right after Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler became angry about a balk call.

He's human after all . . . sort of Nationals rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg, incredibly, lost a game Wednesday at home against the Royals. He allowed nine hits in six innings, but only one run in the 1-0 loss. Hardly a case of Superman exposed to kryptonite. Oh, and he struck out nine batters of the 18 outs he logged to set a major-league record for strikeouts (41) in his first four starts. "For the most part, I went out there and threw strikes," Strasburg told mlb.com of the outing.

Add Jimmy Rollins to the list of walking wounded for the Phillies. Rollins didn't start in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park because of a right foot injury. He did have a pinch-hit single in the ninth, but was lifted for pinch-runner Kyle Kendrick, who was then picked off second on a call that crew chief Tom Hallion admitted afterward was incorrect. As for Rollins, he didn't say much after the game, except that he hopes to play Sunday. Manager Charlie Manuel said that Rollins is day-to-day.

It is subject to approval in federal bankruptcy court.

MILWAUKEE - The biggest momentum swing for the Milwaukee Brewers involved no swing at all. Jonathan Lucroy - "Mr. Squeeze" to his teammates - drove in the go-ahead run with a bunt and the Brewers broke away from the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-4, yesterday to take a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five National League Division Series. "It's a free RBI if you execute and I really work hard to get that down," Lucroy said. "A safety squeeze, all you've got to do is get it down to the right area.

NYJER MORGAN scored on a fly ball by Ryan Braun in the 10th inning to give the Brewers a 3-2 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night, the second late-inning thriller in a row for Milwaukee. With the bases loaded and one out, Braun lofted a shallow fly ball to centerfield. Morgan took off for home despite a stop sign from third-base coach Ed Sedar and was called safe on a close play at the plate - although replays showed that he may have been tagged out before reaching the plate.

MILWAUKEE - There was thought, Ryne Sandberg said, to granting Roberto Hernandez a shot at his first complete game in almost a year. The sinkerballer limited Milwaukee to one run in eight innings Wednesday on 84 pitches. He attacked an aggressive lineup that has occupied first place for 92 straight days only to stumble this week. But the Phillies manager wanted his $50 million closer, Jonathan Papelbon, to record his 22d save. Papelbon sealed a 4-1 win over the Brewers with nine pitches for his third save in three nights.

Hours before the smallest crowd to attend a game at Citizens Bank Park in more than six years watched the Phillies bumble toward another loss - this one by 6-2 to Milwaukee on Thursday - Ryan Howard wanted to correct misguided notions. There is no reason to panic, he said. It is too early. The proof, he said, was beyond the numbers. "We've had a couple of mistakes that have cost us games," Howard said before batting practice. "But in all actuality, we've actually played very well this year.

EVEN MINUS Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers' lineup hardly skipped a beat. Jonathan Lucroy had four hits, Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings and visiting Milwaukee beat the Miami Marlins, 6-1, last night for its fourth consecutive victory. Carlos Gomez had three hits and two RBI for Milwaukee, while Lucroy also drove in a pair of runs. Rickie Weeks homered among his three hits for the Brewers, who tied a season high with 16 hits despite playing without Braun after he aggravated his sore right thumb Sunday against the Phillies.

This was a game of inches, but it was also a game of aches, pains, cramps, stomach viruses and, finally, exhaustion.Did we mention there was an instant-replay triple, too? What's funny is that the Phillies' 7-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon should have been a laugher. Thanks in large part to Domonic Brown's eighth home run in eight games, the Phillies had a five-run lead after the first inning. The white-hot Brown contributed an RBI triple in the second, which ended with the Phillies up, 7-0. And that's how it stayed until the top of the eighth inning because the equally hot Cliff Lee held the Brewers scoreless while striking out a season-high 11 hitters through the first seven.

This time, Cole Hamels couldn't use the excuse of not getting any early run support. Even the sizzling bat of Domonic Brown couldn't save the scuffling Phillies lefthander. Staked to a rare, 3-0, first-inning lead, Hamels continued his mystifying downward plunge during Friday's 8-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park. Brown drilled two home runs, giving him 15 for the season and 12 in the month of May. The Phillies record for homers in a month is 15 by Cy Williams in May 1923 and Jim Thome in June 2004.

THE BREWERS have little margin for error with a week and a half left in the regular season. On Sunday, a lot of hits kept them close in the playoff scramble. Jonathan Lucroy had a pair of RBI singles and visiting Milwaukee collected 15 hits to beat the Washington Nationals, 6-2. Rickie Weeks had three hits while Aramis Ramirez had two doubles for Milwaukee, which twice benefited from outfielders losing fly balls in the sun. The Brewers (79-73) remained 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild-card berth.

TYLER COLVIN stood in front of his locker wearing a Todd Helton T-shirt and cracked a big grin when he was given a choice: tying home run off R.A. Dickey or terrific play at first base. "I'd go with the game-saving play," Colvin said. Either way, Helton, the three-time Gold Glove first baseman on the disabled list since Aug. 6, would approve of Colvin's night that led the visiting Colorado Rockies to a 3-1 win over the New York Mets on Monday. Getting more playing time at first base because of Helton's hip surgery and the recently injured Michael Cuddyer, Colvin connected off Dickey in the fifth inning then made a diving grab with the bases loaded in the eighth to preserve the lead.
