Recap: Milwaukee vs. Arizona

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Ryan Braun homered in back-to-back innings on Saturday and the Brewers coasted to a 10-2 rout of the Diamondbacks.

Braun hit a solo shot in the third, then belted a two-run blast an inning later. Cody Ransom added a three-run homer in the fourth for Milwaukee, which had lost five of seven coming in, including the opener of this three-game series on Friday.

"This team has always been dependent on the home run," said Braun. "A lot of guys were struggling, but over the last month and a half we have been a lot more consistent."

The Diamondbacks' bats were hot in the opener, but rookie Mike Fiers (3-2) silenced them on Saturday, tossing six shutout innings with a career-high 10 strikeouts. It marked the righty's second straight start without allowing a run.

Miguel Montero hit a ninth inning homer for the Diamondbacks while Gerardo Parra added an RBI in the eighth. Aaron Hill, who hit for his second cycle of June on Friday, went 1-for-4.

Wade Miley (9-4) took the loss, giving up eight runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. He had allowed just one run in each of his previous four outings.

"The quality pitches weren't there," said Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson. "He didn't locate like he normally does. I told him it's a game to forget."

In addition to the three-run blast, Ransom had a run-scoring single in the fifth. His homer plated Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart, who tripled and scored on a wild pitch in the second inning.

Carlos Gomez added an RBI triple in the six-run fourth, then tacked on a two- out, solo homer in the sixth to make it 10-0.
