Recap

Brewers 3, Dodgers 2 (10): Nyjer Morgan scored on Ryan Braun’s sacrifice fly and the Brewers won in their final at-bat for the second straight game.

After Matt Guerrier (0-1) started the inning by walking Jonathan Lucroy, pinch-runner Morgan stole second and reached third on A.J. Ellis’ errant throw into center field.

Guerrier walked Rickie Weeks and George Kottaras to load the bases before Braun lifted a fly ball to center, allowing Morgan to barely beat Matt Kemp's throw home.

Kameron Loe (1-0) pitched a scoreless top of the 10th for his first win.

Aramis Ramirez broke out of a 4-for-39 slump with his first home run in the sixth inning, a 444-foot blast off Chris Capuano that tied the game 2-2.

Capuano gave up two runs with four strikeouts over six innings against his former team.

Greinke, who is 12-0 in 17 regular-season starts at Miller Park, allowed two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings.
