Yost gets his 300th victory

Brewers grab control in first inning

Seldom do games turn as dramatically in the first inning as the one Thursday afternoon between the Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park.Thanks to some, shall we say, generous defensive work by the Brewers, starting pitcher Jeff Suppan found himself standing on the mound with the bases loaded and one out.
"My job there is to keep the damage to a minimum," Suppan said.
Mission accomplished. Jason Bay sent a shattered-bat liner to shortstop J.J. Hardy, who flipped to second baseman Rickie Weeks for a rally-killing double play.
As if that didn't take enough wind out of the Pirates' sails, the Brewers came back with four runs in the bottom of the inning and never trailed in claiming a 7-5 victory that kept them atop the NL Central standings with a 9-6 record.
