Dodgers Vs. Brewers: Triple Play, Trio Of Home Runs Lift Milwaukee To 3-0 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers had several chances to score on Monday night, but they hit into four double plays and a triple play in their 3-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in the opening game of a three-game series at Miller Park. It was the 17th win in their last 19 games for the Brewers, who are now a stellar 45-15 at home this season.

The Dodgers collected seven hits and five walks on the night, but couldn't plate a single run. They hit into double plays in the first, fourth, fifth, and ninth innings Monday night, but the play that will be remembered was a ball hit by James Loney in the top of the second inning. The Dodgers had runners on first and second base, and James Loney hit into a 4-6-3 double play, but when Prince Fielder immediately threw home to nail Matt Kemp at the plate the inning was over with an unconventional 6-4-3-2 triple play.

Was Kemp out at the plate? It's hard to tell on the replay:

Ryan Braun hit a solo home run off Ted Lilly in the fourth inning, but that was the only blemish allowed by Lilly in his seven innings. Lilly has allowed four runs in his last three starts, but is 0-3 during that span. Milwaukee added two more solo home runs in the eighth inning off Scott Elbert and Mike MacDougal. Former Dodger Randy Wolf pitched eight scoreless innings to pick up his 10th win of the season.
