Brewers are swept away by Dodgers after falling 7-1 on Thursday

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Casey Blake hit a two-run homer and six Dodgers pitchers combined on a two-hitter as Los Angeles beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-1 Thursday for a three-game sweep.

The Dodgers came into Milwaukee with a 3-14 mark on the road in the second half but rekindled their playoff hopes with their first three-game sweep at Miller Park since May 23-25, 2003.

The Brewers lost their fourth straight.

Leading 4-1, the Dodgers broke the game open in the seventh with three runs off starter Yovani Gallardo (11-6) and reliever Todd Coffey.
