  • HOUSTON -- The Milwaukee Brewers finally gave some run support to Shaun Marcum. Adidas Superstar 2 bianco Uomo . Not that he needed it. Marcum (12-5) allowed his only hit with one out in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Houston Astros 4-0 Sunday for a three-game series sweep. The Brewers supported Marcum with nine hits and a pair of early runs. Marcum has allowed four earned runs in his last five starts and has two victories to show for it. "Theres times you go out there and get a bunch and times you dont get any," Marcum said. "Thats baseball. Personally, I like pitching in tighter games. Theres been times in the past when Ive had run support and Ive lost focus. "When games are tight, I feel I pitch a lot better," he said. Marcum didnt allow a hit until Jordan Schafers single to centre field with one out in the sixth inning. After Schafers hit, Marcum retired the next five batters to complete his day. Houston ended up with three hits and Francisco Rodriguez and Takashi Saito completed the shutout for the Brewers. It was the Brewers 13th shutout of the season, their most since they had 14 in 1992. "Every year Ive been around, theres a pitcher who pitches great and you dont score a lot of runs for him," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "You look at his record and it doesnt tell what kind of season hes had. Shaun has pitched great all year." Ryan Braun homered among his three hits and drove in two runs for Milwaukee. Marcum pitched seven stellar innings, allowing a single to centre field to Jordan Schafer and two other base runners. He struck out eight and walked one. Matt Downs reached on Yuniesky Batancourts throwing error to first base in the second inning. Schafer walked with two outs in the third for the only other baserunners off Marcum. Marcum struck out Jimmy Paredes to end the third and then retired the next seven batters in a row until Schafers hit. Wandy Rodriguez (10-10) pitched six innings, allowed three earned runs and struck out eight and walked three. "Wandy pitched well the whole game," Astros manager Brad Mills said. "The one thing that was disheartening was that all four of their runs came with two outs and nobody on. Weve talked about that before. We have to close out innings." Corey Hart extended his hitting streak to 16 games with a fifth-inning single. Milwaukee powered to a 2-0 lead over the first two innings. Braun hit his 26th homer over the left field fence in the first inning and Jonathon Lucroy hit his 11th homer in the second. Rodriguez struck out the first two batters in the fifth and then loaded the bases with singles to Marcum and Hart and he walked Jerry Hairston. Braun walked on four pitches for a 3-0 lead and Prince Fielder grounded out with the bases still loaded. Braun hit an RBI single off Enerio Del Rosario in the seventh. "Offensively, were doing some nice stuff," Roenicke said. "Were getting guys on base, stealing bases, being aggressive, going first to third." Milwaukee begins a three-game series with St. Louis on Monday. The Cardinals swept the Brewers last week. Getting a sweep in Houston, helped the Brewers for whats ahead. "We needed to come down here and obviously win the series but to get a sweep is nice," Marcum. "We control our destiny. We cant focus on what the Cardinals are doing. If we keep doing what weve done all year, itll be tough for them to catch us." NOTES: Carlos Gomez started for the first time since breaking his left collarbone July 20. ...

Luiten, aiming to become the first home winner of the tournament since Maarten Lafeber won the then-Dutch Open in 2003, chipped in twice during a round that featured six birdies and two bogeys. He has a 10-under total of 200 going into Sundays fourth round. Overnight leader Miguel Angel Jimenez slipped to second with a 70 at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club. Blustery winds and heavy rain made conditions tough on the links course on the North Sea coast west of Amsterdam. "The first nine was really, really tough," Luiten said. "It was raininng really hard and the rain came in sideways.Adidas NMD Blu. A lot of crosswinds. It was just all about surviving the front nine really and on the back nine the rain went away and it became a little bit easier." Luiten, seeking his second win of the season after taking the Lyoness Open in Austria in June, said the crowd helped him around the course. "You can feel everybody is behind you and cheering you on," he said. "Its great to see all the people out there even on a day like this." Jorge Campillo followed his course record-equaling 63 on Friday with a 79 to slump out of contention. Three-time champion Simon Dyson shot a 71 to remain well placed at 7 under heading into the final day. Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Authentic China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NHL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
