MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers scored five runs in the first inning Tuesday night to beat Texas 6-3. The Crew ended a five-game losing streak, as they quickly jumped on young Rangers’ starter Justin Grimm. He had a solid two-point-two-eight E-R-A coming in, but it jumped to three-point-four-five by the time the Milwaukee offense was done. The Brewers got a long R-B-I single from Ryan Braun, a two-run double from Carlos Gomez, and a two-run homer by Yuniesky Betancourt in the first. Aramis Ramirez hit a solo shot in the seventh. Gomez extended his hitting streak to 13 games. Braun has now hit in 29 straight Interleague contests. Grimm gave up five runs in five innings. He struck out seven, as his record dropped to 2-2. Wily Peralta got the win, giving up three runs – two earned – on five hits over six innings. At one point, he retired 11 of 12 Rangers as he improved to 3-2. Jim Henderson threw a scoreless ninth for his seventh save. Mitch Moreland belted a solo homer for the American League West-leading Rangers, who lost their second straight. The Brewers are now 10-3 this season when they score first, and they evened their home record at 10-10. Milwaukee will close out a nine-game home-stand tonight against the Rangers. Right-hander Kyle Lohse will face Texas southpaw Derek Holland. Coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
