MILWAUKEE -- Brady Clark is the biggest beneficiary of Carlos Lee's emerging comfort in the National League.

With his slugging teammate on a tear, Clark's 28 runs are tied with Jeff Kent atop the NL.

Lee extended his hitting streak to 10 games and his RBI streak to nine Tuesday night, when Clark ignited a four-run sixth inning in Milwaukee's 8-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Clark had three singles. His first one led to a three-run rally in the first, his second drove in a run an inning later and his third drove in Damian Miller from third to erase a 5-4 deficit in the sixth.

Junior Spivey then drew a bases-loaded walk off Terry Adams (0-2) to give Milwaukee a 6-5 lead and Lee welcomed reliever Geoff Geary with a two-run single, extending his hot streak that's quickly atoning for a slow start.

"Look at his numbers in the past. You don't worry about how he started. Now, he's going to drive in runs," Clark said of Lee, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox for leadoff hitter Scott Podsednik over the winter.

Lee's surge -- he's hitting .364 during the streak -- has coincided with the Brewers' 8-3 homestand.

"He's getting more comfortable with his team, the league and here at Miller Park," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "He's just doing his thing."

And Clark is doing his thing as the Brewers' new leadoff man.

"I believe I'm going to get a hit every time," Clark said.

Julio Santana (1-1) pitched two innings for his first win since May 20, 2002, for Detroit against Cleveland. He allowed Mike Lieberthal's second homer of the night, a solo shot that broke a 4-all tie in the top of the sixth.

With closer Derrick Turnbow unavailable because he'd thrown 75 pitches in five appearances over the previous week, Ricky Bottalico pitched the ninth for his first save in four chances this year and his first since Aug. 28, 2001, while he was with the Phillies.

"That's a long time," Bottalico said. "It was just nice to get a save and do anything I can to help Turnbow out."

Philadelphia manager Charlie Manuel and third baseman David Bell were ejected by plate umpire Alfonso Marquez. Manuel was tossed in the fifth when he argued a strike call on Bell.

Bell was ejected two innings later after he was called out on strikes and threw his bat toward the backstop, then had to be restrained as he hollered at the plate umpire, tossed his helmet and then kicked another one.

"Once (Marquez) said it was an equipment fine, I think he just lost it," Lieberthal said of Bell.

Both Manuel and Bell complained about strike calls on identical low-and-inside pitches.

"I knew that wasn't a strike," Manuel said of the one that got him tossed.

The Phillies, who have homered seven times in the first two games of the three-game series, also got a home run from Bobby Abreu for the third straight game. Abreu's sixth homer was a two-run shot in the first off Gary Glover that barely cleared Clark's glove as he made a leaping attempt in center field.

Lyle Overbay, who sat out most of the last two games with a tight hamstring, lined the first pitch he saw from Vicente Padilla for a three-run homer, his seventh, in the bottom of the inning to give Milwaukee a 3-2 lead.

Clark made it 4-2 with an RBI single in the second, but the Brewers blew a chance at breaking the game open in the third, when they loaded the bases with nobody out and failed to score.

Lieberthal led off the fifth with his second homer of the year, and Padilla followed with a double down the left-field line. After Jimmy Rollins' infield single put runners at the corners with nobody out, Placido Polanco punched a single to right field to tie it at 4 and chase Glover, who allowed four runs and seven hits in four-plus innings.

After a passed ball, Santana intentionally walked Abreu to load the bases with nobody out. But the Phillies stranded the bases full, just as Milwaukee did in the third inning.

Notes

This was Lieberthal's ninth career multihomer game, his first since Sept. 19, 2003, against Cincinnati. ... Brewers ace Ben Sheets will throw batting practice Wednesday, the first time he's faced hitters since being sidelined by an inner ear infection last month. ... The Brewers hadn't won eight times in a homestand since the 1999 season.
