THE CREW COMES ALIVE LATE IN LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay drove in three runs with a two-out double in the eighth inning, rallying the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night in a game between division leaders.

    Brandon Kintzler (2-3) got the victory, giving up one hit in one inning of relief. 

  The NL Central-leading Brewers scored all their runs in the eighth off Jamey Wright (4-3), who gave up four hits and walked one. 

    They tied the score 2-all on Scooter Gennett's RBI single and Khris Davis' run-scoring double after Wright allowed four consecutive hits, Milwaukee's first since getting two hits in the first inning. 

    Brandon League struck out pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks before Overbay doubled to left, scoring Gennett, Davis and Mark Reynolds, who was intentionally walked, for a 5-2 lead.

    Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his 37th save. 

GAME 2 OF THE SERIES IS SATURDAY NIGHT.  CATCH BREWERS PREGAME AT 7:35 PM, WITH FIRST PITCH AT 8:10 PM, ON THE BIG 1070 AM
