Mon. Final: Brewers 9, Mariners 7
Next Game: Tuesday, March 31st vs. San Diego
PHOENIX (AP) -- Rickie Weeks might finally be living up to his billing as the No. 2 pick in the 2003 draft.
The 26-year-old second baseman had three more hits to push his hitting streak to eight games and 15 of 16, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Seattle Mariners 9-7 Monday.
Weeks, whose home run gave Milwaukee a 1-0 victory over San Francisco on Sunday, singled in the third inning, doubled in the sixth -- a ball Mariners center fielder Endy Chavez lost in the sun -- then hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh.
Seattle rallied to tie it 7-all in the ninth on Mike Wilson's second home run of the game, a three-run shot.
But backup infielder Casey McGehee rescued the Brewers with a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth.
