Rickie Weeks started the go-ahead rally in the opener, then provided most of the offense in the second game. Weeks scored on Prince Fielder's 13th-inning single as Milwaukee beat host Florida, 3-2, in the completion of a suspended game. He then homered, tripled and scored three runs in a 5-2 victory in last night's scheduled game. Milwaukee had lost nine in a row to the Marlins before winning two straight. Tuesday's game was suspended with the score 2-2 after 10 innings and three rain delays that totaled 1 hour, 42 minutes.

MILWAUKEE - Zack Grienke capped a perfect season at home to help the Milwaukee Brewers clinch home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a 7-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night. Carlos Gomez, Corey Hart, and Jonathan Lucroy homered for the Brewers, who set a franchise record with 96 wins and open an NL division series at Miller Park beginning Saturday. If the NL Central champions had tied with NL West winner Arizona in the standings, the Brewers would have started the playoffs on the road.

The Pirates' best hitter on the road gets even better when he's down to his final swing. Ryan Doumit hit a solo homer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning last night - his second game-deciding homer in 3 days - and visiting Pittsburgh held on for a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, who couldn't stop the Pirates' Mr. Clutch. "You knew somebody was going to score sooner or later," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "We didn't know they were going to score like that. " Brandon Phillips tied it 1-all in the eighth with his 100th career homer off reliever Joel Hanrahan (1-0)

Mike Lieberthal could be following Randy Wolf home to Southern California, the Los Angeles Times reported. Sources told the Times that Lieberthal wants to sign with the Dodgers and would be happy to serve as the backup to Russell Martin. He is believed to be seeking a 1-year deal for about $1 million with an option year. The Phillies are not expected to offer Lieberthal arbitration by tomorrow's deadline, making him a free agent. Lieberthal, who has spent his entire career with the Phillies organization, missed 55 games last season with a variety of injuries.

A cheerful Barry Bonds looked upbeat and relaxed yesterday as he prepared to come off the disabled list and play for the first time this year. Bonds will start in leftfield and bat cleanup tonight when he makes his long-awaited return to the San Francisco Giants' lineup as they open a three-game series against the NL West-leading San Diego Padres at SBC Park. Bonds took batting practice and shagged flies in the outfield yesterday. He joked around with Cubs star Nomar Garciaparra and former teammate Jerome Williams, traded to Chicago earlier this season.

No matter how good this one looked, Ted Lilly really wasn't sure this was his best start of the season. Either way, he'll take it. Lilly pitched seven scoreless innings, Tyler Colvin drove in the lone run with a double in the eighth, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 1-0, yesterday in Wrigley Field. "I got away with a few," Lilly said. "I made some decent pitches. " But . . . "Maybe not the best I've thrown the ball," he said. It was good enough, though.

PITTSBURGH - Chase Utley, who has seen his batting average drop 50 points in 6 weeks, was held out of the starting lineup yesterday afternoon. Before the game began, however, the slumping Utley learned he had been rewarded for his impressive first 2 months of the 2014 season with a trip to the All-Star Game. Utley will start at second base for the National League All-Star team a week from tomorrow night (July 15) at Target Field in Minneapolis. It's the sixth All-Star selection of Utley's career.

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.

ANOTHER DAY, another loss, and more frustration for the St. Louis Cardinals. Unlike last year when a tremendous stretch run lifted St. Louis to the NL wild-card berth and, ultimately, the World Series title, the Cardinals are sinking fast. Clayton Richard (13-12) pitched seven strong innings and rookie Yasmani Grandal singled home the go-ahead run as the San Diego Padres handed visiting St. Louis its 11th loss in 15 games, 3-2, on Wednesday. The Cardinals hold a one-game lead over Los Angeles for the second NL wild card.

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.

ST. LOUIS - The bumbling Brewers made four errors that led to three unearned runs as the St. Louis Cardinals survived a short start by Jaime Garcia to beat Milwaukee, 7-1, Friday night and take a three-games-to-two lead in the National League Championship Series. Yadier Molina and Matt Holliday had three hits each for St. Louis, which burst to a 3-0 lead in the second when Molina doubled in a run and third baseman Jerry Hairston Jr. allowed Garcia's grounder to go through his legs.

MILWAUKEE - It was a scene that had not happened since the second month of the season: Vance Worley, surrounded by reporters, talking about a loss. The Phillies entered yesterday having won 14 straight games started by the rookie righthander. A 3-2 loss to the Brewers prevented Worley from tying the franchise record set by Steve Carlton in 1972. "I guess he was just that much better than me," Worley said with a rueful grin. Worley, of course, has a long way to go before he matches the overall accomplishments of a Hall of Fame lefty like Carlton.

MILWAUKEE - The last time the Milwaukee Brewers presented a potential roadblock to the Phillies' World Series title hopes, they offered little resistance. That, of course, was the magical 2008 season, which ended when Brad Lidge struck out Tampa Bay's Eric Hinske before going to his knees and looking to the sky as a championship-starved city exploded in celebration. Here we are, three years later, and the Brewers again could serve as an obstacle in the Phillies' World Series pursuit.
