Brewers hit 4 HRs, win 8-2 against skidding D-backs

By Bob Baum, AP Sports Writer
 
PHOENIX (AP) Travis Shaw, Domingo Santana, Christian Yelich and Tyler Saladino homered in the first four innings off Matt Koch, and the Milwaukee Brewers routed the Diamondbacks 8-2 on Wednesday to take two of three in Arizona.

Brandon Woodruff (2-0) held the sputtering Arizona offense to one hit in five innings, Daniel Descalso's two-run homer.

Shaw, who has a team-high 10 home runs, also doubled and scored. The Brewers have won three of four, outscoring their opponents 23-9.

Arizona finished a 1-6 homestand and has lost seven of eight heading into a nine-game trip. The game drew 16,762, the smallest home crowd for the Diamondbacks this season.

Koch (2-2) allowed eight runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings, his poorest outing since moving into the rotation after Taijuan Walker underwent Tommy John surgery. Koch had faced Clayton Kershaw, Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer in his previous three starts; Arizona won two of those games.

Woodruff, in the rotation because of the rash of injuries to Brewers starters, struck out six and walked four.

Shaw and Santana hit two-out drives in the first as Milwaukee took a 3-0 lead, but Descalso homered in the bottom half.

Yelich hit a two-run homer in the second, and Santana's leadoff shot in the fourth put the Brewers ahead 6-2.

Jesus Aguilar singled and Shaw doubled to chase Koch. Santana had an RBI groundout against T.J. McFarland, and Jonathan Villar hit a run-scoring double.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Brewers: OF/1B Ryan Braun missed his third straight game with back tightness.

Diamondbacks: 3B Jake Lamb (shoulder) was scheduled to make another rehab start Wednesday night for Class A Visalia and could join the big league club this weekend in New York.

UP NEXT

Brewers: Milwaukee finishes a 10-game trip with a three-game series at Minnesota. LH Brent Suter (2-3, 5.14 ERA) starts for the Brewers and RH Kyle Gibson (1-1, 3.43) goes for the Twins in Friday night's series opener.

Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (4-2, 4.08) is to start Friday at the New York Mets and RHP Jacob deGrom (3-0, 1.83).
