Weeks' single lifts Brewers over Yankees

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Rickie Weeks' RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning drove in the deciding run in the Milwaukee Brewers' 5-4 victory over the New York Yankees, spoiling CC Sabathia's return to Miller Park.

Weeks' two-out hit off Alfredo Aceves (0-1) brought home Jonathan Lucroy, one of three Brewers who homered off Sabathia earlier in the contest, and helped Milwaukee halt a three-game losing streak.

Lucroy finished 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a double, with Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez adding solo shots and Weeks also collecting a pair of hits.

Zach Duke (3-0) picked up the win despite surrendering Alfonso Soriano's run- scoring pinch-hit single in the top of the seventh that tied the game at 4-4.

Sabathia, who went 11-2 with a 1.65 ERA in a half-season with the Brewers in 2008, lasted 5 1/3 innings in his first start at Miller Park since leaving Milwaukee to sign with the Yankees. He allowed four runs, though just one was earned due to an error by New York shortstop Brendan Ryan that led to a three- run third.

Mark Teixeira went 2-for-4 with a solo homer for New York, which took Friday's opener of this three-game interleague set and came in having won three straight overall.
