NEW YORK» Clint Fra­zier hit a three-run homer off Corey Knebel with one out in the ninth, lift­ing the Yan­kees over the Brew­ers 5-3.

Fra­zier turned on a 1-0 pitch from Knebel (0-2) for his sec­ond ca­reer homer and first game-end­ing shot.

Fra­zier had three hits and a ca­reer-high four RBIS in his sixth game.

Dellin Be­tances struck out two in a per­fect eighth for New York, and Aroldis Chap­man (2-0) struck out the side in the ninth.

The NL Cen­tral-lead­ing Brew­ers wasted an im­pres­sive show­ing by crafty left­hander Brent Suter.

Suter, a Har­vard grad­u­ate who has never reach 90 mph in the ma­jors, didn’t al­low a hit un­til Fra­zier’s ground­ball sin­gle with two outs in the fifth. He pitched two-hit ball through six score­less in­nings be­fore the Yan­kees got to him for two runs in the sev­enth. Jared Hughes and Ja­cob Barnes then got the ball to Knebel.
