Dodgers batter Bettinger, Brewers

The Los Angeles Dodgers spoiled what could have been a four-game sweep for the Milwaukee Brewers, escaping American Family Field with a 16-4 victory on Sunday. 


Alec Bettinger was making his Major League debut on Sunday and gave up 11 runs on 11 hits in four innings. Two of the big blows were grand slams hit by AJ Pollock and Matt Beaty in the opening innings. Jacob Nottingham got the Brewers on the board in the third inning with a solo shot, but the Dodgers would answer with seven consecutive runs including a second homer by Pollock and additional RBI knocks by Pollock and Beaty. Nottingham homered again in the eighth inning with Pablo Reyes along for the ride and Avisail Garcia capped off the scoring with an RBI single.


The Brewers still have the National League's best record and now travel to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies for 6:05 p.m. start.
