Hinske powers Diamondbacks past Brewers 8-7Submitted: 04/07/2013
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Pinch hitter Eric Hinske belted a long two-run homer in the 11th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-7 on Sunday to complete a three-game series sweep.

With Cliff Pennington aboard following a leadoff double, Hinske drove a 1-2 pitch from John Axford (0-1) onto the concourse beyond the wall in center field. Hinske raised his right arm as he rounded second with his eighth career pinch-hit homer.

Tony Sipp (1-0) struck out two in a perfect 10th inning and Heath Bell held on for his first save after J.J. Putz blew an opportunity in the ninth.

Jonathan Lucroy had a one-out RBI single, but Rickie Weeks and pinch hitter Kyle Lohse _ a starting pitcher forced into duty after manager Ron Roenicke ran through his available players _ struck out to end the game.

Ailing slugger Ryan Braun stepped into the on-deck circle with Weeks at the plate, but Roenicke called him back into the dugout after he struck out.
