Gonzalez’s 2-Run Double Lifts Dodgers Over Brewers

Adrian Gonzalez drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a two-out double in the seventh inning, Carl Crawford homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-5 on Friday night.

Justin Sellers greeted reliever Burke Badenhop (0-2) with a leadoff single in the seventh and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Jerry Hairston Jr. Nick Punto drew a two-out walk from Michael Gonzalez, and Adrian Gonzalez followed with a drive off the glove of center fielder Carlos Gomez as Sellers and Punto scored to give Los Angeles a 5-4 lead.

The Dodgers extended the margin to 7-4 in the eighth on a run-scoring groundout by Hairston and an RBI single by Crawford.

Ronald Belisario (2-2) got the victory. Brandon League gave up a run in the ninth, but earned his seventh save.
