LOS ANGELES -- Jonathan Lucroy put the finishing touches on Milwaukees resounding three-game sweep of Los Angeles, giving the NL West leaders plenty to think about should they meet again in October. Brooklyn Nets Store . Lucroy tied a season high with five RBIs, including his first home run in more than three weeks, and the Brewers beat the Dodgers 7-2 on Sunday to maintain their three-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central. Lucroy also had five RBIs on June 17 at Arizona, including a pair of homers -- one of which was a grand slam. "It was one of those days where I got a couple of good pitches to hit and was able to hit them hard," Lucroy said. "(Dan) Haren made a couple of mistakes up in the zone and I was able to take advantage." Wily Peralta (15-7) tied Johnny Cueto and Adam Wainwright for the major league lead in victories, allowing five hits in six scoreless innings. The right-hander is 6-1 with a 1.79 ERA in seven starts since giving up a career-worst nine runs in a 9-7 home loss to Philadelphia on July 8. "Ive just been pounding the strike zone and working ahead of the hitters. Thats been the difference since that game in Philadelphia," Peralta said. "Ive been able to locate my fastball and mix it in with some off-speed stuff. "They made me work today, but I was able to make the big pitch when I had to and I was able to put zeroes on the board. And its always good when you get early run support." Carlos Gomez hit his 20th homer, helping the Brewers become the first team to sweep the Dodgers in a series of three or more games this season. They also won a road series for the first time since sweeping a three-game set from Colorado from June 20-22. The Dodgers fourth loss in five games, coupled with San Franciscos 5-2 win over Philadelphia, reduced their NL West lead over the Giants to 3 1/2 games. "We played a really good team and they showed why. They have a very deep lineup and good pitching," Haren said. "I mean, theyre in first place, so its not like we got swept by some last-place team." Haren (10-10) gave up six runs and five hits over three innings in his shortest outing of the season, following consecutive victories against the Angels and Atlanta Braves. Two of the runs on Harens line were unearned, the result of an error by three-time Gold Glove first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who dropped a short throw from second baseman Dee Gordon on a grounder by Jean Segura in the second. Haren, who came in averaging 1.86 walks per nine innings, opened the game by walking Gomez and giving up Lucroys 13th homer. He walked Gomez again with two out in the second, and Lucroy cleared the bases with his NL-leading 40th double to give the Brewers a 5-0 lead. "I definitely was trying to pitch Gomez carefully, and he didnt swing at anything out of the zone," Haren said. "The scouting report said hes a free swinger and he doesnt walk too much. With a guy with the amount of power he has, youve got to be a little careful. And when he gets on first base, hes a threat to run. So youve always got to be conscious of that and be a little quicker to the plate to the next guy." TRAINERS ROOM Brewers: 2B Scooter Gennetts troublesome right quad has curtailed his ability to run the bases at maximum efficiency -- as was the case in the third, when he was held at third on a double to right-centre by Khris Davis for the second time in the series. Dodgers: At this point, only hip surgery will end RHP Josh Becketts season prematurely. "I have not heard anything about him getting shut down for the whole year," manager Don Mattingly said. "Were going to do everything to have him have the opportunity to pitch again this year. But I dont think we look at Josh as somebody who would come out of the bullpen for us." UP NEXT Brewers: Mike Fiers (2-1, 1.29 ERA) pitches Tuesday nights series opener against Toronto. Last Tuesday, he struck out 14 in a 6-2 win over the Cubs, ending a Brewers streak of 286 consecutive games without a double-digit strikeout performance. Dodgers: Kevin Correia opens the three-game series against San Diego, his second start since he was acquired Aug. 9 from Minnesota and replaced Beckett in the rotation. Nets Jerseys 2020 . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. Kenyon Martin Jersey . Once again, the third baseman delivered in a big spot. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting with a two-run homer to help back Wily Peraltas solid start, and the Brewers extended their winning streak to seven with a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Cuban prospect Alexander Guerrero to a $28 million, four-year contract Tuesday. The deal calls for a $10 million signing bonus payable upon approval of the contract by Major League Baseball. Guerrero would earn $4 million in both 2014 and 2015, and $5 million in both 2016 and 2017. There is $1 million per year in performance bonuses, based on 500-600 plate appearances. The 26-year-old infielder defected from Cuba earlier this year and moved to Haiti. He has been training in the Dominican Republic, where scouts for the Dodgers saw him during workouts. "We feel Alexander can be an offensive infielder and a solid everyday player," general manager Ned Colletti said. "Were looking forward to him competing for a middle infield position and becoming a key contributor in 2014." Guerreros deal eliminates the Dodgers as a possible bidder for Robinson Cano, the New York Yankees All-Star who is eligible for free agency and is seeking a contract that could approach $300 million. John Williamson Jersey. Guerrero played seven seasons in Serie Nacional, Cubas top professional league, where he was a three-time All-Star selection. In his final season of 2011-12, he batted .290 with 21 home runs and 50 RBI in 80 games. He committed eight errors in 350 chances at shortstop for a .977 fielding percentage. In September, he received a license from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control that allowed him to sign with a major league team. Colletti said the Dodgers would plan on having Guerrero play winter ball. "Hes a big league infielder that has versatility to him," the general manager said. Another Cuban, 22-year-old outfielder Yasiel Puig, had great success with the Dodgers this season. He was called up from the minors in early June, and nearly made the All-Star team while helping the team reach the NL championship series. To make room for Guerrero on 40-man roster, right-hander Peter Moylan was designated for assignment. ' ' '
