MILWAUKEE -- Joey Wiemer hit a game-winning single in the 10th inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

Wiemer's hit came off Austin Voth (1-2). It scored pinch-runner Andruw Monasterio, who was the automatic runner.

"Joey's a competitor, man," Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. "It's a really clean way he competes. He doesn't get distracted by much."

Baltimore dropped to 5 1/2 games behind AL East-leading Tampa Bay, which won its fourth straight game.

Milwaukee moved into first place in the NL Central, a half-game ahead of Pittsburgh, which lost after winning six straight.

With the game tied at 3 in the 10th inning, Baltimore had runners at first and second with two outs, but Peter Strzelecki (3-4) struck out pinch-hitter Josh Lester.
