It took almost five months but the Milwaukee Brewers are back at .500 and they're just four games out of the Wild Card with 20 games to go. The Brewers made it 17 of their last 22 with a 5-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves at Miller Park Tuesday night. Rickie Weeks launched a home run in the first inning off Tim Hudson and the 1-0 lead stood until the 7th. The Crew tacked on three more runs with RBI's from Jean Segura, Nori Aoki and Taylor Green. Aramis Ramirez hit his 23rd homer of the season, a solo shot in the 8th. Marco Estrada picked up the win, working six and two thirds innings, allowing just four hits while striking out 6. He also got several sparkling defensive plays behind him. Milwaukee (71-71) also got plenty of help Tuesday night as the Padres knocked off the Cardinals 6-4, the Dodgers were beaten 1-0 by Arizona and the Reds beat the Pirates 5-3. The Brewers are .500 for the first time since April 24 and they can finish off the sweep of the Braves Wednesday night with Yovani Gallardo facing Paul Maholm.
