PHOENIX (AP) — Jonathan Lucroy homered twice, including a grand slam in an eventful seventh inning, to lead Milwaukee past Arizona.
Lucroy's slam to center came on Brad Ziegler's first delivery after Arizona reliever Evan Marshall was ejected for hitting Ryan Braun with a pitch.
Marshall (2-2) took the loss, facing three batters without getting an out after relieving starter Mike Bolsinger, who was called up from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day.
Bolsinger had a 4-2 lead when he left the game in the seventh inning. He wound up allowing three runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and no walks in 6 1-3 innings.
Lucroy had a solo homer in the sixth. Aramis Ramirez also hit a solo shot for the Brewers.
Kyle Lohse (8-2), who had hit three batters all season, plunked two and threw one over Bolsinger's head in his six innings, apparently leading to retaliation by Marshall. Lohse allowed four runs, three earned, and six hits.
