LOS ANGELES (AP) -- In a matchup of division leaders, the Brewers made an emphatic statement.

Prince Fielder hit two home runs and Rickie Weeks had a career-high four hits to lead Milwaukee past the Dodgers 9-5 last night.

Weeks had missed the previous four games because of a sore right wrist.

One of his hits was an RBI double in the third.

Johnny Estrada added a solo homer for Milwaukee.

Jeff Suppan improved to 6-4.

He allowed four runs and six hits in six-plus innings, striking out two and walking three.

He took a one-hitter and an 8-0 lead into the sixth before giving up an RBI single and Jeff Kent's two-run homer.

Dodgers starter Brett Tomko falls to 1-5.

He allowed five runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.

This was Fielder's third multihomer this season and sixth in his young career.
