 HOUSTON (AP) -The Brewers moved into first place in the NL Central, but lost Ben Sheets to tightness in his left hamstring. With 12 games left in a tight pennant race, it's uncertain when Milwaukee will get its ace back.
``I guess I'll see tomorrow,'' said Sheets, who left after the first inning of the Brewers' 9-1 victory over Houston. ``It was just grabbing me back there. I felt great in the first. I thought I was going to get into a nice groove.''
Sheets threw 12 pitches in the first inning, giving up a double to Josh Anderson and an RBI single to Lance Berkman.
The right-hander trotted to the mound to start the second, but signaled to the dugout that he was hurt. Manager Ned Yost walked out with a trainer and Sheets jogged around the infield and threw a warmup pitch before walking off the field.
``It didn't pop,'' Sheets said. ``It just gradually grabbed worse and worse every time.''
Claudio Vargas replaced Sheets, who spent a month on the disabled list this season with a sprained middle finger, and pitched four scoreless innings in relief to help the Brewers climb in front of the Chicago Cubs by less then a percentage point in the division.
The Brewers said Sheets would be evaluated Wednesday. He was scheduled to start again on Sunday in Atlanta.
