LOS ANGELES, CA (WSAU-TSN) - Lyle Overbay delivered a pinch-hit, three-run double in the eighth inning to rally the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday night.
Scooter Gennett drove in two runs for the Brewers, who have been alone or at least tied for first place in the NL Central every day since April 5. Their lead in the division remained two games over St. Louis.
Overbay's hit capped a five-run frame, giving the Brewers their second straight win.
Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson gave up six hits and two runs over six innings, while LA's Zack Greinke was charged with two hits in five scoreless frames. Greinke left after throwing 99 pitches, just 55 for strikes in the opener of this three-game series.
Yasiel Puig went 3-for-4 with two RBI for the Dodgers, who maintained a 5 1/2 game lead in the NL West after the Giants lost in 10 innings Friday night to Philadelphia.
Brandon Kintzler (2-3) pitched the seventh inning to get the win. Francisco Rodriguez earned his 37th save of the season and 341st of his career. That tied Rollie Fingers, who finished his Hall of Fame career in a Brewers uniform, for 11th most on the all-time list.
