MILWAUKEE - Marco Estrada struck out 11 in eight shutout innings, Corey Hart homered twice and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Houston Astros 9-5 on Saturday night.
The Brewers began the day barely in the playoff race, a year they reached the NL championship series. Any Milwaukee loss or St. Louis win would mean elimination.
Hart drove in four runs to back Estrada (5-7), who won for the third time in four starts. The right-hander allowed only four singles and a walk after giving up six earned runs in just four innings against Washington in his last outing.
Houston hit three home runs in the ninth to score five times off reliever Livan Hernandez. Fernando Martinez and Brian Bogusevic hit two-run homers and Tyler Greene added a solo shot.
In November 2006, nearly 60 percent of Wisconsin voters supported an amendment banning gay marriage.
Before Wisconsin lawmakers could consider a bill to allow gay marriage, voters would have to pass an amendment undoing the 2006 amendment language. But before that the Legislature would have to pass the amendment in two consecutive sessions.
