Brewers Go deep For 6-4 victory Over Dodgers
LOS ANGELES (AP) Carlos Gomez and Martin Maldonado each hit two-run home runs to propel the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.
Gomez’s homer off reliever Matt Guerrier in the seventh inning erased a 3-2 deficit and Maldonado added his blast an inning later, also off Guerrier, to give the Brewers the cushion they needed.
The comeback overshadowed the major league debut of Dodgers starter Matt Magill.
Magill pitched 6 2-3 innings, striking out seven while retiring 12 of the last 13 batters he faced.
Paco Rodriguez replaced Magill and gave up an infield single to Norichika Aoki. Guerrier (1-1) replaced Rodriguez and gave up Gomez’s shot to left field.
The Brewers’ Wily Peralta (2-1) gave up three earned runs on six hits over 6 innings with one walk and two strikeouts
