LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay drove in three runs with a two-out double in the eighth inning, rallying the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night in a game between division leaders.

Brandon Kintzler (2-3) got the victory, giving up one hit in one inning of relief.

The NL Central-leading Brewers scored all their runs in the eighth off Jamey Wright (4-3), who gave up four hits and walked one.

They tied the score 2-all on Scooter Gennett's RBI single and Khris Davis' run-scoring double after Wright allowed four consecutive hits, Milwaukee's first since getting two hits in the first inning.

Brandon League struck out pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks before Overbay doubled to left, scoring Gennett, Davis and Mark Reynolds, who was intentionally walked, for a 5-2 lead.

Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his 37th save.
