Dodgers Vs. Brewers Final Score: Matt Kemp Homers In 4-3 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been making a habit of one-run games of late. They played their fourth straight one-run game and sixth in their last seven contests on Thursday in Milwaukee, beating the Brewers 4-3 in the finale of a three-game series to avoid a sweep. The usual suspects shined for the Dodgers, as did a few reserves.

Matt Kemp had two hits and scored twice, and hit his major league leading seventh home run of the season. Andre Ethier also had two hits, including a double and an RBI single in the win. Kemp and Ethier are tied for the major league lead with 18 RBI through 13 games.

After Aaron Harang (1-1) allowed three runs in six innings and with Josh Lindblom and Kenley Jansen getting the day off after a heavy workload of late, Jamey Wright was called on the pitch late in the game. He pitched well, too, throwing two scoreless innings while striking out four. Wright was also helped in the bottom of the eighth inning when former Brewer Jerry Hairston Jr. made a fantastic diving stop on a sure RBI double by Alex Gonzalez, then threw him out at first base to end the inning.

Javy Guerra struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning for his sixth save of the season, tops in baseball. The Dodgers (10-3) move on to Houston Friday for a weekend series against the Astros.

Dodgers Vs. Brewers Final Score: Disputed Call Sends L.A. To 2nd Straight Loss, 3-2

Ryan Braun's shallow sacrifice fly was deep enough to score Nyjer Morgan from third base, giving the Milwaukee Brewers a 3-2 win in 10 innings over the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday night at Miller Park. Though replays of the final play showed Morgan to be out at home, which didn't sit well with Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

"Having the luxury of seeing the replay, obviously we should still be playing. I guess it's another argument for instant replay," Mattingly said after the game.

Both starting pitchers were strong, with Chris Capuano allowing two runs in his six innings with a pair of walks and four strikeouts for the Dodgers, and Zack Greinke allowed two runs in seven frames for Milwaukee.

Mark Ellis drove a ball to right field that caromed off the glove of Corey Hart in right field in the first inning for a one-out triple. Ellis was driven home on a single to left field by Matt Kemp.

Hart received a similar gift in the second inning, doubling off the glove of Andre Ethier on a catchable ball in right field, then scored on a base hit by Matt Gamel to tie the game at 1-1.

The Dodgers took the lead in the top of the fifth on an RBI groundout by A.J. Ellis, but Aramis Ramirez tied the game with a solo home run to leadoff the bottom of the sixth inning.

The Dodgers and Brewers hook up again for the series finale on Thursday morning, a 10:10 a.m. PDT start, with Aaron Harang starting for the Dodgers and ex-Dodger Randy Wolf starting for the Brewers.
