Souza's 24th home run helped the Rays salvage a win in a three-game series in which they scored only two runs.

OUR PREDICTION: The total has gone under in five of the Brewers' last five games when playing on the road against the Rays and is 6-1 in Milwaukee's last seven games.

For the Sunday game, the Brewers will be bringing out RHP Jimmy Nelson.

The Brewers tied it in the sixth on Orlando Arcia's 11th home run, the only run off Archer.

TV: 12:10 p.m., FSN Wisconsin.

Barnes (3-3) threw only two pitches in relief of Nelson, who gave up one run on six hits while striking out nine in eight innings.

Nelson leads the Brewers with 13 quality starts this season, and is 8-3 with a 2.83 ERA over his last 17 starts. He was at 95 pitches after seven frames so he wasn't given a chance to make a run at a complete game shutout.

At the top of the second inning, Shaw attempted to steal second base, and succeeded. The throw from catcher Jesus Sucre hit him in the left side of the head just before shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria could reach it.

Shaw suffered a bruised neck and is considered day-to-day, the Brewers said.

Shaw left the game, with Hernán Pérez replacing him at third base for Milwaukee.
