Brewers beat Nationals 6-0 to snap 7-game skid


 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez homered to back another fine pitching performance by Mike Fiers as the Milwaukee Brewers snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 6-0 victory over the Washington Nationals.

   Hours after trading ace Zack Greinke to the Los Angeles Angels for rookie shortstop Jean Segura and two Double-A pitchers, the Brewers ended Washington's six-game winning streak.

   Called up May 29 from Triple-A Nashville, Fiers (4-4) has been one of Milwaukee's most consistent pitchers in recent weeks. He did not give up a hit until the fourth inning and retired 14 of his first 17 batters.

   Fiers gave up only four hits while striking out nine in 6 1-3 innings. Over his last seven starts, he has allowed four earned runs in 47 innings for a 0.77 ERA.
