Maldonado homers in 17th, Brewers beat Diamondbacks 7-6

Posted: Updated:
  MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Martin Maldonado homered with one out in the bottom of the 17th inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers outlasted the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 Sunday to snap a seven-game losing streak.
   The catcher hit the first pitch from reliever Vidal Nuno (0-1) over the wall in center field to start a well-earned celebration. Maldonado slid into home as his tired but giddy teammates surrounded the plate.
   Making his first relief appearance since 2010, Matt Garza (3-7) threw five scoreless innings. He stranded a runner at second in the 13th, 15th and 17th.
   It was the longest game at Miller Park since Milwaukee lost 4-2 to the Chicago Cubs in 17 innings on May 15, 2003.
   Maldonado caught all 17 innings and went 4 for 6 with three runs and two RBIs. He doubled in a two-run sixth that helped Milwaukee rally from a 5-1 deficit.
