Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Shaun Marcum won his fifth straight decision and Carlos Gomez made a run-saving catch in the outfield, lifting the Brewers to a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers to start a two-game series. Gomez robbed Juan Uribe of a solo home run in the second inning, sprinting from his position in centerfield to the warning track in left-center and leaping to make the catch over the wall.
It helped Marcum (5-1) remain unbeaten since his Milwaukee debut on April 2. The right-hander allowed one run on five hits and a walk while striking out four in seven innings for the Brewers, who pushed their winning streak to four games after sweeping the Pirates over the weekend. Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks hit RBI singles for Milwaukee. Weeks' base hit scored the winning run in the sixth inning.
Matt Kemp hit a sacrifice fly for the Dodgers, who have lost three in a row and had a four-game winning streak against the Brewers snapped.
