The Milwaukee Brewers earned their 3rd straight win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night, 6-3 in L.A.
The Brewers took it to reigning Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw, scoring five runs in 5+ innings. Kershaw entered the game with a 4-2 record and 1.97 ERA.
Yovani Gallardo earned his fourth (4-4) win of the season, holding the Dodgers to 3-runs on 8-hits in 6+ innings, striking out 8 and walking 3.
Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez tied a career high with four hits, including a go-ahead two-run single against Kershaw.
Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp, playing in his second game since coming off the disabled list, re-injured his left hamstring while scoring all the way from first base on a two-out double by Andrew Ethier in the first inning. Last year’s MVP runner-up could be headed back to injured reserve.
Zach Greinke (5-2, 3.66) pitches the series finale for the Brewers tonight. He’ll face Chad Billingsley (2-3, 3.88) of Los Angeles.
