Brewers Knock Off Dodgers Submitted: 08/16/2014
Brewers Knock Off Dodgers
Story By Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - Yovani Gallardo pitched eight innings, Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez homered, and the Milwaukee Brewers ended Clayton Kershaw's streak of 11 straight victories with a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.

Gallardo (8-6), who threw 96 pitches, allowed a run and six hits with three strikeouts and a walk. The right-hander has won back-to-back starts for the first time since his first two outings of the season.

Francisco Rodriguez got three outs for his major league-leading 38th save and 342nd of his career, despite giving up a leadoff homer to Matt Kemp.

Rodriguez, who broke a tie with Hall of Famer and former Brewers closer Rollie Fingers for 11th place on baseball's career list, has passed 11 players this season.

Kershaw (14-3) pitched his 17th complete game in 202 career starts. He allowed five hits and no walks and struck out 11.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner and three-time defending major league ERA champ had a 1.16 ERA over his previous 13 starts since his last loss on May 28 against Cincinnati.

Last Sunday, he held the NL Central-leading Brewers to one run in eight innings in a 5-1 victory at Milwaukee.

Justin Turner had an RBI single in the fourth for the Dodgers, whose third loss in four games reduced their NL West lead over San Francisco to 4 1-2 games following the Giants' 6-5 win over Philadelphia.

Braun heard taunts of "Cheat-er, cheat-er" from the crowd of 50,849 as he dug in against Kershaw in the fourth inning. He temporarily silenced them with an opposite-field drive that barely cleared the right field fence and the leaping attempt of Kemp -- who was runner-up to Braun for NL MVP honors in 2011.

The two-run homer was the 15th this season for Braun, who was suspended for the final 65 games last season and the playoffs for violating baseball's drug policy.

Gomez drove Kershaw's first pitch of the sixth inning into the Dodgers bullpen in left field for his 19th homer.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Brewers: RHP Matt Garza, sidelined because of a strained left oblique, played catch for the second straight day.

Dodgers: 3B Juan Uribe was placed on the disabled list because of an injured right hamstring for the second time this season. He is the seventh Dodgers player to go on the DL this month, joining SS Hanley Ramirez and pitchers Josh Beckett, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Paul Maholm, Chris Perez and Paco Rodriguez.

UP NEXT

Brewers: Wily Peralta (14-7, 3.46 ERA) is 5-1 with a 2.06 ERA in his last six starts since giving up a career-worst nine runs in a 9-7 home loss to the Phillies.

Dodgers: Dan Haren (10-9, 4.50) is coming off victories over the Angels and Braves. He will attempt to win three consecutive starts for the first time since last July 27-Aug. 9, when he beat the Mets, Brewers and Phillies and went seven innings each time.

RHINELANDER - A sustainability fair in Rhinelander connects people who want to keep the earth clean and healthy.
Organizers celebrated Earth Day by teaching people how they can accomplish that.
Abby Meyer came up from Green Bay for her first Sustainability Fair in Rhinelander Sunday. She sells all natural skin care products.

"It's the future of being able to have a planet, such great energy here," said Meyer.
Meyer and 42 other exhibitors feel energized to protect the earth.
"It's kind of interesting what other people do and the good they're doing for other people," said maple syrup vendor Leroy Schmieder.

Schmieder said being around people with the same mission is encouraging.
"It's kind of a community thing, you learn what everybody else is doing," said Schmieder.
Fair organizer Ann Eshelman said the fair teaches the community, but also brings people with a message together.
"They're providing something that we as a group think is valuable, they're kinda isolated," said Eshelman.
When the fair started eight years ago organizers wanted to end that isolation. Bringing vendors together to share their message, make connections, and walk away with new information.
"Giving each other jobs and work and supporting each other," said Meyer.

Eshelman believes that support is what the community needs to help move in the right direction.
"[It] can enable even ordinary Northwoods residents to do something for the earth," said Eshelman.
It can also show them that helping the environment starts at home.
"An important part of sustainability is helping out your community," said Meyer.
