Betancourt hits 8th HR, Brewers beat Rangers 6-3

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Yuniesky Betancourt's eighth homer of the season capped a five-run first inning Tuesday night and the Milwaukee Brewers snapped a season-high five-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers.
Aramis Ramirez also homered for the first time this year and NL batting leader Carlos Gomez added a two-run double for Milwaukee, which rebounded from a four-game sweep by visiting St. Louis last weekend.
Wily Peralta (3-2) gave up three runs -- two earned -- and five hits in six innings. The right-hander, who turns 24 on Wednesday, struck out two and did not walk a batter.
Three relievers followed with an inning each for the Brewers, including Jim Henderson in the ninth for his seventh save.
