HOUSTON, June 11 (UPI) -- Corey Hart hit a pair of two-run homers Wednesday and Milwaukee won a slugfest with Houston 10-6.

Home runs accounted for 11 tallies and the teams combined for 25 hits in a game that also saw Houston Manager Cecil Cooper and catcher Brad Ausmus ejected in separate run-ins with first base umpire Angel Campos.

The Astros were denied what would have been their first two-game winning streak in three weeks.

Milwaukee overcame a 3-1 deficit with a four-run fourth that included solo shots by Russell Branyan and Mike Cameron along with the first of Hart's two-run blasts.

The Brewers extended their lead in the fifth thanks to Jason Kendall's first home run of the year, a two-run shot.

After Houston climbed within a run in the sixth, the Brewers tacked on three in the eighth -- two coming on Hart's second homer.

Manny Parra (5-2) survived long enough to get the win, giving up five runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3.

Brandon Backe (4-8) suffered the loss after allowing five runs on seven hits in four innings.
