MILWAUKEE, Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Ryan Braun smacked his National League-leading 29th homer and drove in three runs Wednesday in Milwaukee's series-sweeping 13-4 rout of hapless Houston.

Rickie Weeks went 3-for-3 with a two-run shot while Cesar Izturis added three hits, a solo homer and two RBI for the Brewers, who outscored the Astros 30-12 in the three-game series.

Jonathan Lucroy chipped in with a two-run blast as Milwaukee banged out 15 hits in the victory.

Mike Fiers (5-4) held Houston to two runs on eight hits over six innings to pick up the win. He didn't issue a walk and struck out six.

Astros starter Jordan Lyles (2-8) was rocked for nine runs (seven earned) on nine hits through a five-inning effort.

Brett Wallace cracked a pair of homers while going 3-for-4 as the major league-worst Astros fell to 1-22 in their last 23 road games.
