Shrek delivers crushing blow

Brewers LF Kevin Mench, whom his teammates call Shrek for his resemblance to the Mike Myers movie character, took Randy Wolf deep in the sixth, turning a 3-2 Dodgers lead into a 4-3 deficit. Wolf had settled in nicely just before that, retiring eight in a row before giving up a well-placed infield single to Johnny Estrada. Mench followed that with a two-run blast into the Brewers bullpen in left-center. Russell Martin has a single, double and homer and is 6 for 9 lifetime against Chris Capuano, who left the game after five innings. Jeff Kent just followed a walk to Nomar by flying out on the first pitch from Matt Wise. No need to work the count or anything. The chorizo, a new addition to the sausage race this year, won easily tonight, matching the Italian for the lead in the sausage-race standings. And Corey Hart isn’t wearing sunglasses. Dodgers are six outs away from going 0-2. Brewers 4, Dodgers 3, middle 7, Billingsley coming on
