Ramirez helps rally Brewers past Dodgers 3-2


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez tied the game with a homer and singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, helping the Milwaukee Brewers defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Monday night.

   Shaun Marcum (3-3) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings, struck out nine and walked two to end a two-game skid.

   John Axford pitched the ninth and earned his eighth save in nine chances. He put the potential tying run on first by walking pinch-hitter Ivan De Jesus Jr., who went to second on a wild pitch before Elian Herrera struck out to end the game.

   Ramirez homered leading off the fourth in his return to the lineup after missing two games with a bruised left elbow.

   Aaron Harang (3-3) gave up three runs -- one earned -- and four hits in five-plus innings, while striking out four and walking three.
