Final Score: Milwaukee 6, Los Angeles 3
Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Carlos Gomez went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored as the Milwaukee Brewers took a 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the third game of a four-game set.
Corey Hart had three hits while Rickie Weeks scored twice for the Brewers, who have won the first three games of this series. Yovani Gallardo (4-4) gave up three runs on eight hits with three walks and eight strikeouts in six-plus innings.
Clayton Kershaw (4-3) was touched for five runs on eight hits with four walks and seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings for the Dodgers, who have lost three straight for the first time this season.
The game wasn't the only thing Los Angeles lost on Wednesday as center fielder Matt Kemp left the game in the first inning after scoring on an Andre Ethier double.
Playing just his second game after coming off the disabled list on Tuesday, Kemp re-aggravated his left hamstring strain then snapped a bat over his knee before walking into the locker room. He had been on the DL since May 14 and will have an MRI on Thursday.
The Dodgers grabbed the lead on Ethier's double in the first, but the Brewers got a two-run single from Gomez in the fourth to take a 2-1 lead.
Milwaukee scored three more times in the sixth. Martin Maldonado executed a suicide squeeze to score Weeks then Gallardo helped his cause with a single that plated Gomez. Norichika Aoki later added an RBI single for a 5-1 lead.
The Dodgers got two back in the seventh as Eilan Herrera hit a two-run single that scored A.J. Ellis and Dee Gordon, but the Brewers got one back in the eighth on Aramis Ramirez's fielder's choice that scored Nyjer Morgan.
Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless eighth and John Axford did likewise in the ninth for his 10th save of the season.
