Braun’s HR propels Brewers’ 2-1 win over Dodgers
Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer, getting back at Dodgers fans who booed his every move and leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 2-1 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday night.
Mike Fiers (1-0) allowed a run and five hits in seven innings, striking out three and walking none in his first major league start and third appearance after being recalled from Triple-A Nashville. The 26-year-old right-hander gave up his only run when Andre Ethier doubled home Ivan De Jesus in the sixth for his NL-leading 43rd RBI.
Braun, who beat out Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp for NL MVP last season, homered in the first inning.
