Kottaras' double lifts Brewers past Dodgers in 9th

Posted:

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Pinch-hitter George Kottaras' two-run double with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-4 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday night, snapping the Dodgers'0 six-game winning streak.

   Trailing 4-3, Corey Hart led off the ninth with a single off Dodgers closer Javy Guerra (1-1). Pinch-runner Carlos Gomez then stole second and Mat Gamel walked.

   Guerra, who blew his first save of the year and third in his career, struck out Jonathan Lucroy. Kottaras then pinch-hit for Cesar Izturis and hit a 2-2 pitch to the wall, driving in Gomez and Gamel with Gamel sliding in just ahead of the throw from second baseman Mark Ellis and sending the Brewers to a jubilant celebration at home plate.

   Jose Veras (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the victory.
