--Ned Yost posted his 400th victory as Brewers manager in a 1-0 triumph over Atlanta. Only Phil Garner (563) and Tom Trebelhorn (422) have more wins in club history.

--3B Bill Hall, who is now sharing time at the position with INF Russell Branyan, extended his hitting streak to seven games Wednesday by going 1-for-3.

--RHP Jeff Suppan struck out a season-high seven batters in eight shutout innings in the 1-0 victory over Atlanta. It was Suppan's sixth quality start of the season but first outing in which he allowed no runs.
