Brewers 10, Diamondbacks 2

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 30, 2012
Ryan Braun homered twice and Cody Ransom added a three-run homer to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday. Braun's two home runs gave him the National League lead with 22 for the season. Carlos Gomez also hit a home run as the Brewers had 13 hits and scored the most runs since May 20 when Milwaukee beat Minnesota 16-4. Brewers rookie pitcher Mike Fiers (3-2) pitched six shutout innings to get the win. He struggled early in the game stranding five runners in the first three innings, but retired the last 11 batters he faced and ended up with a career-high 10 strikeouts. In all, Fiers has not given up a run in his past 19 innings. Wade Miley (9-4) lasted just 3 2-3 innings for Arizona, giving up eight runs and eight hits. Miley failed in his attempt to become the first Arizona pitcher to record 10 wins before the All-Star break since Brandon Webb (13-4) in 2008, and the first National League rookie to do so since 2002, when Kaz Ishii was 11-5 for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Brewers grabbed a 1-0 lead in the second inning as Corey Hart led off with a triple off the center field wall. He scored when Rickie Weeks struck out, but the ball got past Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero on a wild pitch. Braun's third-inning solo home run gave the Brewers a 2-0 lead. The Brewers broke the game open in the fourth inning, scoring six runs. After Hart and Weeks singled, Ransom hit his seventh home run of the season. Carlos Gomez hit an RBI triple and Braun followed with a two-run homer to give the Brewers an 8-0 lead and force Miley from the game. Ransom's RBI single in the fifth inning and Gomez's fourth home run of the season in the sixth inning increased the lead to 10-0. Gerardo Parra's fielder's choice in the eighth inning and Miguel Montero's eighth home run of the season in the ninth inning accounted for Arizona's runs. Notes: Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said RHP Daniel Gibson (3-2, 7.35 ERA) got a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum, which confirmed he has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. He said the date for Hudson's surgery may be set as soon as Monday. ... Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy was on the field during batting practice chatting with Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. ... The game's attendance was 41,647, the Brewers' 10th sellout of the season.
