NL Playoffs: Brewers 9, Diamondbacks 4

Associated Press
MILWAUKEE ó Jonathan Lucroy drove in the go-ahead run with a squeeze and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they could bunt as well as bash, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-4 Sunday to take a 2-0 lead in their NL division series.
Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer and fellow slugger Prince Fielder added an RBI single for Milwaukee. But the brawny Brewers also excel at the little things, especially Lucroy.
Lucroyís safety squeeze keyed a five-run sixth inning, and came right after Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler became angry about a balk call. Thatís when rookie Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke put on a play ó heíd already seen Lucroy successfully bunt a few times this season.
With the score 4-all and runners at the corners with one out, Jerry Hairston Jr. took a couple of half-steps and sprinted home as Lucroy bunted toward first base. Zieglerís awkward flip went wide of catcher Miguel Montero and the Diamondbacks imploded from there.
