Manny's HR, 3 RBIs push Dodgers past Brewers 17-


AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Manny Ramirez ended his 10-game RBI drought with a homer and a two-run double, and Matt Kemp had a homer among his four hits while driving in five runs in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 17-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

Kemp had two hits and two RBIs during the seven-run sixth inning, while Russell Martin reached base five times and had three RBIs in the Dodgers' highest-scoring home game in 30 years. With a season-high in runs on 18 hits, Los Angeles improved the majors' best record to 66-41.

The game got testy with two outs in the ninth when reliever Guillermo Mota hit Brewers slugger Prince Fielder. Home plate umpire Marvin Hudson immediately ejected Mota, who slowly left the field while Fielder voiced his anger.
