LOS ANGELES - The Milwaukee Brewers scored nine runs in the second inning last night, and beat the Dodgers in Los Angeles 11-6.
Ryan Braun highlighted the rally with a three-run double, after Dodgers’ starter Clayton Kershaw hit his second batter of the inning which forced Gregg Zaun to score. Prince Fielder and Zaun both hit two-run homers to cap off the frame. Zaun went 3-for-4 on the night, and fell a triple short of the cycle. Braun had a triple to go with his big double, and he went 2-for-5 and scored three times. Casey McGehee also drove in a pair, as the Brewer offense exploded after being shut out in three-of-its-last-four contests. The win was only Milwaukee’s third in its last 11.
Chris Narveson got the win, giving up three runs on four hits in six innings. He’s now 2-0. Kershaw gave up seven runs on five hits in one-and-a-third innings for LA. The loss dropped him to 1-2. James Loney hit a three-run homer for the Dodgers, who ended a three-game winning streak. The Brewers and Dodgers will play again tonight. Left-hander Doug Davis faces LA right-hander Chad Billingsley.
