MILWAUKEE — Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart each hit a three-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers pounded the Houston Astros 10-1 on Wednesday.

Ramirez had three hits and four RBIs, including his 13th homer of the season in the third inning. Hart hit his three-run shot in the fifth, his 20th homer.

Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo (9-8) went seven innings, giving up one run and three hits with a walk and five strikeouts. And this time he wasn't betrayed by the team's leaky bullpen, as Jim Henderson got out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth and Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth.

Home plate umpire Brian Knight ejected Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and bench coach Jerry Narron in the ninth.
