Johnson turned to walk back to the dugout before realizing what happened, but even with the late jump he managed to make first base after Fielder couldn't handle Kendall's throw.
Soriano scored on the play and made an emphatic safe call after watching Johnson reach first. Mark DeRosa followed by flaring RBI single.
Milwaukee cut it to 2-1 in the bottom of the first inning when Dempster made his only mistake by uncorking a wild pitch that scored Ray Durham, who had led off with a double and tagged up to reach third.
But the Brewers fell to 0-for-15 with runners in scoring position in the series and are 3-for-60 in the last eight games.
In the third, the Brewers' first three hitters wasted Parra's leadoff double. In the fifth, Parra tripled with two outs moments after Kendall was caught stealing after taking off from a small lead at first.
