It is often said that there is no such thing as a bad victory, but the Milwaukee Brewers put that axiom to an extreme test Tuesday.

After the bullpen frittered away leads of 9-2 and 11-5 in the late going and allowed Miami to go ahead in the top of the 10th, Aramis Ramirez prevented a truly heinous loss by socking a two-run, two-out homer in the bottom of the inning to give the Brewers a wild 13-12 victory over the Marlins at Miller Park.

Although it was the fourth consecutive victory by the Brewers, keeping alive hopes of climbing back in the NL Central race, it was an outcome that was difficult to enjoy, considering the circumstances.

"I'm worn out, to tell you the truth," said manager Ron Roenicke, whose club matched its best winning streak of the season.

"It's hard to watch that. There were a lot of positives but it was hard to watch. That would have been a hard one to lose. It was a hard one to win."
