Cody Bellinger hit his 10th home run, Max Muncy also went deep, and Julio Urias struck out nine and allowed one hit in six innings as the Dodgers beat the Brewers 3-1 in Milwaukee on Thursday to extend their winning streak to five games.
“He was really good tonight,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Urias. “Best he’s thrown. The differentiation between the fastball and the changeup tonight was very subtle. Those guys weren’t taking good swings, weren’t getting good looks at it.”
Bellinger drove a 3-2 pitch from reliever Matt Albers into the Dodgers’ bullpen in right-center field in the sixth inning to snap a scoreless tie. Muncy followed two batters later with a two-run shot that landed in the netting above the Brewers’ bullpen in left.
Kenley Jansen earned his sixth save despite allowing Christian Yelich’s 10th home run.
