Final Score: Milwaukee 9, Arizona 3
Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Aramis Ramirez's two-run double in the
eighth inning helped the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-3 win over the Arizona
Diamondbacks in the opener of a four-game series.
Ramirez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored, while Scooter Gennett hit a solo
home run, drove in two and scored twice for the Brewers, who have won four of
their last six.
"We swung the bat really well throughout the game," Brewers manager Ron
Wily Peralta (7-5) won his third straight start as he went seven innings and
gave up three runs on nine hits with six strikeouts.
Roger Kieschnick was 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored for the
Diamondbacks, who have dropped five of their last six games.
Brandon McCarthy allowed three runs on seven hits over seven innings and also
hit a two-run single in the no-decision.
With the score tied in the eighth, Will Harris (0-2) took the mound with two
outs and walked Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy. Ramirez doubled home both and
scored himself on a Khris Davis single for a 6-3 lead.
"Two outs and to score all those runs, it didn't work out the way we wanted
it to," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said.
Will Smith worked a scoreless eighth inning, and the Brewers increased their
lead in the ninth on an RBI single from Gennett and a two-run triple by Braun.
The Brewers took the initial lead in the game as Ramirez singled to lead off
and Davis followed with a triple. A double play ground ball by Jean
Segura allowed Davis to score for a 2-0 lead.
Arizona, though, answered in the home half on an RBI single from Kieschnick
followed by a two-run hit from McCarthy for a 3-2 lead.
Gennett, though, homered to start the third to tie the game.
The Diamondbacks took two of three from the Brewers in Milwaukee in early May
... Milwaukee was a crisp 4-for-7 with runners in scoring position ... Gibson
was ejected by first base umpire Ted Barrett in the ninth inning.
