Dodgers beat Brewers 4-3 to avoid sweep


 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Matt Kemp hit his seventh home run of the season and the Los Angeles Dodgers avoided a three-game sweep with a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

   Andre Ethier and Juan Rivera added RBI singles while Jerry Hairston Jr. made two big late-inning defensive plays for the Dodgers, who lost the first two games of the series on late-game fireworks by the Brewers.

   Travis Ishikawa had a double, a single and two RBIs for Milwaukee.

   Ryan Braun was 0 for 11 in the three-game series against the Dodgers, striking out in his final two at-bats Thursday.

   Javy Guerra pitched a scoreless ninth, his sixth save in seven opportunities this season.
