Angels 4-run 7th beats Brewers

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim scored four runs in the seventh inning and pulled out a 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers and a three game sweep over the weekend.

J.B. Shuck clubbed a bases clearing double that deflected off of first base, was the big blow.  The Brewers had taken a 3-1 lead into the seventh with a two-run home run by Carlos Gomez in the fourth inning.

Kyle Lohse allowed seven hits and one run through six innings before giving way to the bullpen.

Lohse posted his team-leading 18th quality start.

The Brewers loaded the bases in the eighth inning, but Jonathan Lucroy struck out on a 12-pitch at bat and Khris Davis followed with another strikeout to end the threat.

C.J. Wilson earned the win for the Angels, improving to 14-6.  He and the Angels bullpen held the Brewers to 4-hits.

The Brewers open a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park on Monday.
