Brewers hit four home runs in 7-2 win over Arizona

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Martin Maldonado hit a three-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers went deep four times Monday night, spoiling the major league debut of Arizona pitching prospect Braden Shipley in a 7-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Scooter Gennett, Jonathan Villar and pinch-hitter Andy Wilkins also connected for the Brewers in the opener of a four-game series. Chase Anderson went five innings to beat his former team for his first win since June 8.

Acquired from the Diamondbacks in the offseason, Anderson (5-10) hadn't made it through five innings in any of his previous five starts. This time, he gave up two runs and seven hits.

Gennett hit a 437-foot homer to straightaway center field off Shipley (0-1) with one out in the first to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead. The right-hander was selected 15th overall by Arizona in the 2013 amateur draft.

Shipley helped his cause when he led off the third with a stand-up double, narrowly missing a home run. He later scored on a single by Jean Segura.

Villar put the Brewers back in front with a home run leading off the third. The Diamondbacks pulled even in the fourth on a run-scoring double by Yasmany Tomas.

In the fifth, Ryan Braun extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a run-scoring single, putting Milwaukee ahead 3-2.

Maldonado connected for a three-run homer with one out in the sixth, ending Shipley's outing. Wilkins followed with his first career home run - he had been 0 for 9 since getting called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs this month.
