Brewers Score Twice In 9th To Snap Dodgers’ 6-Game Winning Streak
MILWAUKEE (CBS/AP) — Pinch- hitter George Kottaras slugged a two-run double in the bottom of the ninth off Javy Guerra and the Brewers snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers’ six-game winning streak, beating LA 5-4 on Tuesday night.
“I will own up to this one,” Guerra said to reporters after the game. “It was my bad. For the ball club to have battled back like we did, those are the games we have to win.”
The Dodgers trailed 3-2 in the eighth inning when Andre Ethier took Francisco Rodriguez deep for his fourth homer of the year , giving the Dodgers a one-run lead.
Kanley Jansen pitched a perfect eighth inning before Guerra suffered his first blown save of the season.
Chad Billingsley had another very good start, going six inning and allowing two runs.
