They hope Ryan Braun can help them match that feat Wednesday when the teams conclude their three-game set at Miller Park.The Brewers (31-28), winners of eight of their last nine, extended their win streak to a season-high five games Tuesday as Braun hit a two-run homer off Randy Johnson to spur a 7-1 win over Arizona (32-27). That came a night after Prince Fielder, who has homered in four of the last five games, hit an eighth-inning solo shot to secure a 4-3 victory in the series opener.Milwaukee is in position to sweep a series from the Diamondbacks for the first time since winning three straight at Arizona from Aug. 21-23, 2000. The Brewers also are looking to match their longest winning streak from all of last season."Even when times were tough for us earlier in the year, nobody on our team panicked," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "We stayed patient, we understood that things would turn around and guys would get hot."Braun, who signed an eight-year, $45 million contract extension on May 15, has been a catalyst during the five-game win streak, going 8-for-20 (.400) with three homers and seven RBIs. Before that stretch, the reigning NL Rookie of the Year had gone 10 consecutive games without a home run and eight straight without an RBI.Braun is hitting only .147 (5-for-34) with two homers in nine games versus the Diamondbacks, but one of those home runs came in his three career at-bats against Micah Owings, Arizona's scheduled starter Wednesday.The Brewers hope Manny Parra (3-2, 4.72 ERA) can find some consistency in his first start against Arizona.The left-hander is 2-0 with a 3.94 ERA in his last three starts. He was outstanding in the two victories, allowing one run and eight hits with 12 strikeouts in 11 2-3 innings. However, he wasn't nearly as effective in the other outing, getting tagged for six runs and seven hits through 4 1-3 innings of a 7-6 loss at Washington on May 25.Parra, though, followed that up with another gem, allowing one run and four hits with six strikeouts while throwing 87 pitches in six innings of a 5-1 win over Houston on Friday.The Diamondbacks, losers of seven of their last nine, hope Owings (6-3, 4.17) can rebound from one of his worst outings of the season.He gave up six runs and eight hits while hitting two batters in 6 1-3 innings of Friday's 7-4 loss to Washington."I just kept fighting," said Owings, who has rotated wins and losses with a 3.91 ERA in his last four starts. "I didn't feel like I had my best stuff tonight, and unfortunately you're going to have those nights."Owings lost his only start against the Brewers on July 16, allowing four runs and seven hits in six innings of a 4-3 defeat at Miller Park.Arizona's Mark Reynolds has been hot of late, going 9-for-20 (.450) with three homers in his last seven games. The third baseman is 4-for-7 with a double and two RBIs in the series.
