Aaron Harang made history in his previous outing, and the Dodgers pitcher and his teammates on Thursday made sure they avoided a different kind of milestone.
The Dodgers were in danger of losing their third consecutive game and being swept in a series by Milwaukee for the first time since the Brewers joined the National League in 1998.
But the Dodgers avoided that fate with a 4-3 win to salvage one game at Miller Park.
The victory was highlighted by the hitting of Matt Kemp, who had a solo home run, and Andre Ethier. It also included a spectacular play by third baseman Jerry Hairston Jr. and two scoreless innings by 37-year-old relief pitcher Jamey Wright.
