DETROIT (AP) -- National League Central leader Milwaukee held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 for their second straight victory after being no-hit on Tuesday.

Corey Hart homered for the winners and Ben Sheets became the second pitcher in Brewers' history with 1000 strikeouts.

The veteran right-hander whiffed seven on his way to a seventh win in 10 decisions this year, upping his career total to 1003 since making his major league debut with the Brewers in 2001.

That's 78 shy of Teddy Higuera's franchise record set from 1985 to 1994.

Omar Infante and Gary Sheffield led off the ninth against Francisco Cordero with singles, and the hot-hitting Magglio Ordonez doubled off the right-center wall, pulling Detroit within two runs and putting two runners in scoring position.

Sean Casey's RBI groundout made it 6-5, before Cordero struck out Craig Monroe and Mike Rabelo for his major league-leading 24th save in 26 chances.

Detroit starter Chad Durbin falls to 5-3.
