Ron Roenicke didn't look or sound like a manager whose team won a game Wednesday night. The Brewers pulled out a near-miraculous 5-2, 10-inning victory over Arizona that appeared lost a couple of times. But Roenicke and his players were saddened by an injury to centerfielder Carlos Gomez, who broke his left collarbone making an amazing tumbling catch in the fourth inning. "It's a great win, a great comeback but I'm bummed about 'Gomey,'" said Roenicke. "It's a big loss for us. If he doesn't make that play, we probably don't win the game." Roenicke said Gomez probably would be out about two months, depending on whether surgery is needed to repair the broken collarbone. That timetable likely would put him out for the rest of the season. The bottom of the fourth inning proved ugly for both clubs. It began with a leadoff double to right by Arizona shortstrop Stephen Drew, who remained at second when Chris Young hit a fly down the left-field line that Ryan Braun trapped with a sliding, back-hand effort.
