Brewers drop opener against Braves 4-3 in extras

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Matt Kemp scored from third after Keon Broxton dropped Gordon Beckham's fly ball to center field in the 12th inning, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 on Monday night.

With the bases loaded and nobody out, Broxton dropped a drive to deep center. An error was given to Broxton, but Beckham was awarded a sacrifice fly and an RBI.

Kemp drew a walk off Carlos Torres (2-2) to start the 12th and went to third on a ground-rule double to right-center by Nick Markakis. An intentional walk to Adonis Garcia loaded the bases.

Brewers reliever Blaine Boyer came on to work out of the bases-loaded jam with no further damage.

Brandon Cunniff (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to earn his first win. Jim Johnson stranded the tying run at second base for his ninth save.
