PHOENIX, AZ (WHBL) - An exchange of hit batsmen turned into a 7-to-5 victory for the Milwaukee Brewers at Arizona last night. Kyle Lohse hit a pair of batters, including Chris Owings in the back of the neck in the sixth inning. One frame later, the Brewers had runners at second and third when D-Backs' reliever Evan Marshall threw behind Ryan Braun, then hit him in the back with a 95-mile-an-hour fastball. Marshall was ejected, and was greeted with high fives in the Arizona dugout and a standing ovation from the Arizona crowd. Jonathan Lucroy then hit Brad Ziegler's first pitch over the wall for a grand slam, which put Milwaukee in front for good. It was Lucroy's second homer of the night, the third grand slam of his career, and his fourth career multi-homer game. Aramis Ramirez also went yard for the Crew. Roger Kieschnick belted his first career homer for Arizona, which has now dropped six of its last seven games. Lohse got the win, giving up four runs in six innings. He's 8-2. Francisco Rodriguez got his 22nd save. Marshall took the loss without getting an out. He's 2-2. Brewers' outfielder Carlos Gomez missed his second straight game with a tight hamstring. He's expected to return tonight. Right-hander Matt Garza will face Arizona lefty Wade Miley, whose scheduled start was pushed back a day. Tune in for pregame coverage on WHBL beginning at 8:05.
