Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Gomez each hit a two-run homer, Zack Greinke pitched effectively for six innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Thursday night to complete a four-game sweep.

The Brewers played without NL MVP Ryan Braun, who was scratched because of tightness in his right Achilles tendon. He first experienced it on May 1 at San Diego, when he hurt himself sliding into second base a day after hitting three home runs against the Padres, and has been playing through it ever since.

The Dodgers also played without their No. 3 hitter, Matt Kemp, and will be without the slugger for at least a month.
