Aoki's 3 hits, 3 RBI lead Brewers to win


 SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Norichika Aoki had three hits, including a triple, and drove in three runs Monday as the Milwaukee Brewers rallied past the Texas Rangers 5-3.

   Aoki hit an RBI single in the second off fellow Japanese newcomer Yu Darvish, then tied the game at 3 in the sixth when he tripled to score Alex Gonzalez and George Kottaras. Aoki came home on Cesar Izturis' squeeze bunt.

   Making his third start, Darvish allowed one hit and three walks in four innings with four strikeouts and a hit batter. He threw 39 of 70 pitches for strikes.

   Brewers starter Randy Wolf gave up three runs, 10 hits and two walks in five innings with four strikeouts.

   Elvis Andrus had three hits, including two off Wolf. Kentrail Davis homered for Milwaukee.
