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. He was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque after Stephen Fife, the scheduled starter, landed on the disabled list with bursitis in his right shoulder. Magill arrived at Dodger Stadium a couple of hours before the game and seemed a little bit nervous working his way through a 28-pitch first inning. The native of Simi Valley, which is about 40 miles northwest of Dodger Stadium, settled down nicely, except for an extended third inning. He struck out seven in 6 2-3 innings and retired 12 of the last 13 batters he faced. He left in position to record his first big-league win. Paco Rodriguez replaced Magill and gave up an infield single to Norichika Aoki. Guerrier replaced Rodriguez and gave up Gomez's shot into the left-field pavilion. Maldonado's blast came after Rickie Weeks singled in the eighth inning. Brewers starter Wily Peralta (2-1) gave up three earned runs on six hits over 6 innings with one walk and two strikeouts. Jim Henderson notching his sixth save of the season. The Brewers had taken a 2-0 lead off of Magill in the third inning without hitting the ball hard. Aoki walked and went to second on Gomez's single to right. Ryan Braun followed with a grounder to Magill, but Gomez beat the throw to second base, loading the bases. Aoki scored on a soft single to center field by Yuniesky Betancourt, and the Brewers doubled their lead when Rickie Weeks grounded into a force play. The Dodgers got one run back in the third when A.J. Ellis hit a two-out single, scoring Juan Uribe from third. They tied the score an inning later on a throwing error by shortstop Alex Gonzalez. Gonzalez was a last-minute replacement for Jean Segura, who split a fingernail while fielding grounders before the game. Matt Kemp's hustle gave Magill and the Dodgers a 3-2 lead in the sixth inning. He singled to start the inning and went to second on a hit by Skip Schumaker. Jerry Hairston Jr. hit a fly ball to deep center field, allowing Kemp to move to third. Kemp scored when Luis Cruz grounded out to second. Andre Ethier hit a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning for the Dodgers. The Dodgers had runners at first and third with two outs in the ninth inning, thanks in part to an error at third base by Betancourt, but Ellis grounded out to shortstop. NOTES: Magill was the ninth starting pitcher the Dodgers have used in their first 23 games this season. The last time they used that many pitchers through 23 games was in 1942, when they were in Brooklyn and used 10 starters in their first 22 games.
