 PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Braun hit three home runs and tied a franchise record with seven RBIs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers over Philadelphia 10-4 Tuesday, spoiling the Phillies' home opener.
Coming off a three-game sweep of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, the Brewers won their fourth straight game and improved to 5-2.
Kyle Lohse (1-1) allowed three runs and seven hits, walking five.
Braun connected twice off Kyle Kendrick (0-1), snapping the longest homerless drought of his career. The 2011 NL MVP came in with only three singles in 20 at-bats this season.
But Braun, who is bothered by a right thumb injury, felt just fine, as usual, in Philadelphia. He has 10 homers and 21 RBIs in 20 career games at Citizens Bank Park.
GIANTS 7, DIAMONDBACKS 3
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Michael Morse hit a two-run single to back Tim Hudson as each made memorable home debuts with their new team, and Brandon Belt hit a two-run homer for San Francisco.
Hudson (2-0) shut down the D-backs for the second time in seven days with an eight-inning gem in his first outing at AT&T Park since agreed to a $23 million, two-year contract in November.
Belt's drive off Trevor Cahill (0-3) gave him five homers and the Giants a majors-leading 12.
New Giants left fielder Morse emphatically pumped his fist at first base after a third-inning single, then added a two-out double in the fifth.
Belt became the first Giants player since Jose Cruz Jr. in 2003 to hit five home runs through the first eight games.
