Drew's Hit And Augie's Sac Bunt Key D-backs To 7-4 Win Over Brewers

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Stephen Drew grounded a two-run single up the middle in the 10th inning to lift Arizona to a 7-4 win over Milwaukee in the opener of a four-game series at Miller Park.

Chris Young homered for the Diamondbacks, who tied the game in the ninth against John Axford and snapped a seven-game skid against the Brewers. They won for the fourth time in their last five overall.

Trevor Hoffman (2-5) gave up a double to Kelly Johnson with one out in the 10th. After Justin Upton popped out, Miguel Montero was intentionally walked. Mark Reynolds then drew another walk before Drew, playing in his 600th major league game, hit a 2-2 offering into center field for a 6-4 lead. Pinch-hitter Ryan Church then singled to right field for another run.

Aaron Heilman loaded the bases in the bottom of the 10th on consecutive singles, but retired Joe Inglett on a fly ball to shallow center and then got Jonathan Lucroy on a slow grounder to second base to end the game.

Sam Demel (1-0) had a 1-2-3 ninth inning to notch his first major league win, while Heilman recorded his sixth save of the year.
