Davies sharp, Thames homers, Brewers beat Dodgers 3-0
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Zach Davies pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning, Eric Thames hit his 15th homer and the Milwaukee Brewers averted a three-game series sweep by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Sunday.
Davies (6-3) struck out six and allowed a walk in six-plus innings, effectively mixing a curveball, changeup and a fastball that hovered around 90 mph.
He retired 13 in a row from the first until Yasmani Grandal reached on a one-out infield single up the middle in the fifth, the Dodgers' first hit.
Los Angeles didn't get a runner to second until Adrian Gonzalez and Cody Bellinger opened the seventh with singles that chased Davies. Grandal bounced into a double play against Oliver Drake, and Austin Barnes flied out off Hernan Perez.
Corey Knebel struck out the side around a walk for his fifth save.
