Davis (3-2) gave up three unearned runs and three hits while walking one and striking out two in his longest outing of the year. The lefthander threw 73 of 112 pitches for strikes, retiring 14 straight batters at one point.
"Just about everything was working," he said. "I pretty much had all my pitches working for me today. I got out of a couple jams with a couple of cut fastballs. It was nice to throw whatever I wanted to them."
hit a two-run homer and
added two RBI for the Brewers, who erased a three-run deficit in each game of the series, opening it with wins of 8-5 in 14 innings and 4-3.
"As long as I stay in the game long enough, I know they are going to score some runs," Davis said. "We're going to get our hacks at it, and that's what happened. I kept them in the game and they came back and won."
Hall's throwing error - Milwaukee's second on the play - in the second inning aided the Expos' three-run inning. But Hall made up for the mistake by belting a game-tying two-run homer in the third off Expos starter Sun-Woo Kim.
"I tried to do a little too much defensively," Hall said. "But I swung the bat well and had a two-run homer to tie it up. That's what it's all about, to come back and keep playing.
"(Kim) hung a slider over the plate. It was in a good spot for me to hit it and I got the good part of the bat on it."
Moeller drove in Milwaukee's first run in the third with a sacrifice fly.
Kim (2-1) was hammered in defeat, surrendering seven runs and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings.
"My best pitch is the slider, but I had bad location with the slider," he said. "They hit my slider and that's why I gave up many hits."
"He had a big inning out there and it got away from him," Expos manager
said. "We can't allow that. If you allow three, four runs in an inning, that's what takes you out of ballgames."
Kim had two RBI for the Expos, who dropped their fourth straight game and fell to a National League-worst 10-25.
Montreal's first five hitters went a combined 1-for-18, with only left fielder
collecting a single in the second inning.
"You're not going to win too many games when (the first five hitters) hit like that," Robinson said. "It's not just one person. We're talking about basically the whole lineup."
After losing all six contests to the Expos last season, the Brewers completed their first-ever sweep over Montreal. All three wins were of the come-from-behind variety.
"There are not a lot of highs and lows with this team," Brewers manager
said. "It's a pretty steady attack. It doesn't matter what the situation is. They just keep plugging away."
