Greinke Bests Carpenter to Lift Brewers
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rickie Weeks hit a go-ahead, two-run homer and Zack Greinke outpitched fellow Cy Young winner Chris Carpenter to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 on Saturday night.

Milwaukee, the hottest team in baseball over the last month, pulled within a half-game of St. Louis for the division lead.

Prince Fielder hit his seventh homer in the last eight games and Corey Hart added a two-run double for the Brewers, who keep improving on their major-league best home record.

Lance Berkman homered off Greinke (6-1) to give St. Louis a 2-1 lead in the sixth, but Milwaukee scored four times in the bottom of the inning off Carpenter (1-6) on Weeks' shot and Hart's double.
