MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun homered twice and Cody Ransom added a three-run homer to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday.
Braun's two home runs gave him the National League lead with 22 for the season. Carlos Gomez also hit a home run as the Brewers had 13 hits and scored the most runs since May 20 when Milwaukee beat Minnesota 16-4.
Brewers rookie pitcher Mike Fiers (3-2) pitched six shutout innings to get the win. He struggled early in the game stranding five runners in the first three innings, but retired the last 11 batters he faced and ended up with a career-high 10 strikeouts.
In all, Fiers has not given up a run in his past 19 innings.
