Ahmed hits tiebreaking HR in 8th as Dbacks beat Brewers 7-5

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Nick Ahmed's tiebreaking solo home run in the eighth inning lifted the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 7-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.

Ender Inciarte, David Peralta and A.J. Pollock also went deep, and Paul Goldschmidt had three doubles for the Diamondbacks, who ended a three-game losing streak.

Ahmed's homer off Jonathan Broxton (1-2) put Arizona ahead 5-4, and Pollock's two-run shot in the ninth extended the lead.

Addison Reed (2-2) pitched 1 2/3 innings in relief to get the win. Brad Ziegler surrendered a run in the ninth but picked up his third save in five chances.
