Braun lifts Brewers over Dodgers in 10 innings

Ryan Braun's sacrifice fly plated the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning, as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2.

Matt Guerrier (0-1) walked Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy to begin the 10th. Pinch-runner Nyjer Morgan then stole second with one out and advanced to third on catcher A.J. Ellis' throwing error.

After the next two batters walked to load the bases, Braun lofted a fly ball to shallow center field.

Morgan ran through a stop sign by third base coach Ed Sedar and Matt Kemp's throw beat Morgan to the plate, but he was called safe by umpire Mike DiMuro. Replays showed Ellis applied the tag before Morgan slid across the plate.

Milwaukee won the opener of this three-game set in their final at-bat as well.
