Recap: Milwaukee vs. Los Angeles

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Pinch-runner Nyjer Morgan ignored a stop sign and scored the winning run on Ryan Braun's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th inning, as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2, at Miller Park.

Matt Guerrier (0-1) walked Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy to begin the 10th. Lucroy was replaced by Morgan, who stole second with one out and advanced to third when catcher A.J. Ellis' throw bounced into center field.

After the next two batters walked to load the bases, Braun lofted a fly ball to shallow center field, where Matt Kemp reeled it in. Brewers third-base coach Ed Sedar held up the stop sign, but Morgan ran through it. Kemp's throw was slightly offline and Morgan was called safe by umpire Mike DiMuro.

"I was just looking for a fly ball and looking at Kemp throwing home," said Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke. "Nyjer had energy and he felt it. Sometimes a player sees things a little differently than the coach does, but it worked out good."

However, replays showed Ellis applied the tag before Morgan slid across the plate.

"I'm almost positive I applied the tag, but I haven't seen the replay," Ellis said. "Two tough losses, but I think they'll make us better in the long run."

The Brewers won the opener of this three-game set in their final at-bat as well.

Zack Greinke gave up two runs on four hits, walked two and struck out seven in seven innings for the Brewers. Kameron Loe (1-0) faced the minimum in the 10th to pick up the win.

Former Brewer Chris Capuano also earned a no-decision after allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over six frames.

The Dodgers grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Kemp's RBI single, but Mat Gamel tied it with a run-scoring single in the second.

Ellis grounded into a fielder's choice to score Jerry Hairston, Jr. in the fifth.

Milwaukee answered again in the sixth with Aramis Ramirez's leadoff home run. It was his first home run as a Brewer.

Greinke started his 200th career game...Ramirez hit his 313th career homer as a third baseman to move into sole possession of eighth place on MLB's list from that position...Capuano pitched in five seasons (2004-07, 2010) with the Brewers, going 44-48 with a 4.34 ERA.
