Grandal drives in 8, homers twice as Dodgers rout Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Yasmani Grandal drove in eight runs, hitting two homers and reaching base six times Thursday to power the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Milwaukee Brewers 14-4.

It was tied at 3 going into the sixth inning, and Grandal had zero RBIs in the game up to that point.

Grandal's two-run single capped a four-run sixth inning. He hit a three-run homer into the second deck in right field in the eighth and launched another three-run shot in the ninth.

Grandal, starting in a day game after A.J. Ellis caught the previous night, went 4 for 4 with two singles and two walks.

Alex Guerrero also homered for the Dodgers.

Carlos Frias (3-0) won for the second time in as many starts. Mike Fiers (1-4) left in the sixth.

Adam Lind homered for the Brewers. Milwaukee split the four-game series with the NL West leaders after Craig Counsell replaced fired manager Ron Roenicke.
