Greinke helps Brewers bounce back


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Zack Greinke struck out 10 over seven effective innings and the Milwaukee Brewers got back to their winning ways at home with a 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.

Greinke (7-2) provided his best performance so far with the Brewers as Milwaukee came into play a 1/2-game behind St. Louis in the NL Central.

Yuniesky Betancourt homered in the second off rookie Jeremy Hellickson (7-6) and Ryan Braun hit a two-run single in the seventh that helped snap Tampa Bay's four-game winning streak.

The Brewers are 26-10 at Miller Park and rebounded from Monday's loss in the opener. They are the only major league team not to lose consecutive games at home this season.
