For a few seconds Tuesday, as his 16th home run of the season sailed into the visiting bullpen at Dodger Stadium, Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun silenced the boos.
When Braun was done circling the bases, Nathan Eovaldi proceeded to silence the Brewers' bats, but the Brewers held on for a 2-1 victory.
Eovaldi only faced two batters above the minimum after Braun's two-run home run, retiring 10 in a row at one point before leaving after seven innings.
The 22-year-old right-hander was recalled earlier in the day from Double-A Chattanooga to take Ted Lilly's spot in the Dodgers' rotation.
