Weeks’ Single Lifts Brewers Over Yankees 5-4
Rickie Weeks hit a two-out RBI single after Jonathan Lucroy moved to third on a balk, Francisco Rodriguez earned his league-leading 15th save and the Milwaukee Brewers snapped a three-game skid with a 5-4 win Saturday over the New York Yankees.
Lucroy, Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez each homered off Yankees starter CC Sabathia.
Weeks’ chopper skipped through the hole into left in the seventh off Alfredo Aceves (0-1), who was called for a balk two pitches earlier.
Rodriguez allowed two flyouts to the warning track in right in a scoreless ninth. The veteran closer hasn’t allowed a run in 19 appearances this season.
Zach Duke (3-0) got the win after escaping a seventh-inning jam by getting Carlos Beltran to bounce into a double play.
