Davies sharp, Thames homers, Brewers beat Dodgers 3-0

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Zach Davies pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning, Eric Thames hit his 15th homer and the Milwaukee Brewers averted a three-game series sweep by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Sunday.

Davies (6-3) struck out six and allowed a walk in six-plus innings, effectively mixing a curveball, changeup and a fastball that hovered around 90 mph.

He retired 13 in a row from the first until Yasmani Grandal reached on a one-out infield single up the middle in the fifth, the Dodgers' first hit.

Los Angeles didn't get a runner to second until Adrian Gonzalez and Cody Bellinger opened the seventh with singles that chased Davies.  Grandal bounced into a double play against Oliver Drake, and Austin Barnes flied out off Hernan Perez.

Corey Knebel struck out the side around a walk for his fifth save.
