Brewers score 5 in 8th to beat Diamondbacks 9-4


   MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Scooter Gennett and Jonathan Villar each hit a two-run single in a five-run eighth inning that sent the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

With the score tied at 4, the Brewers batted around and broke the game open on three hits and four walks against Arizona's bullpen.

Hernan Perez singled up the middle off reliever Daniel Hudson (1-2) to start the eighth, and Ryan Braun walked. With one out, Chris Carter walked to load the bases for Gennett, who blooped the go-ahead hit over second base.

Zac Curtis came on and struck out pinch-hitter Andy Wilkins, but walked Keon Broxton and Kirk Nieuwenhuis to force in another run. Villar followed with a two-run single that capped the rally.
