MILWAUKEE (AP) - Zack Greinke claims he wasn't clamoring for a chance to pitch in Miller Park again.

Carlos Gomez hit a go-ahead two-run double, Jonathan Lucroy tied a career high with three hits and an RBI and five Milwaukee relievers combined for five scoreless innings as the Brewers beat their former ace pitcher and the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 Tuesday night.

Greinke (2-1), making his second start since returning from a broken left collarbone, gave up season highs of nine hits, five earned runs and three walks in four-plus innings against his former team en route to his first career loss at Miller Park. The right-hander, traded by the Brewers to the Los Angeles Angels last July 27 before signing with the Dodgers in the offseason, had won his first 15 decisions in Milwaukee.

``I didn't think about it at all,' Greinke said. ``Everything was bad, not just command. Just no feel out there, no adjustments to be made. Started out bad. I got out of some jams early but never really got better.'

Mike Fiers (1-2), Michael Gonzalez, John Axford, Brandon Kintzler and Jim Henderson pitched Milwaukee to only its fourth victory in its last 19 games by allowing a total of just four singles. Henderson threw the ninth for his ninth save, striking out pinch-hitter Scott Van Slyke with runners on first and second.

``When the bullpen comes together like that and shuts those guys out for the rest of the game, even though their record isn't that great, that's a good hitting team,' said Fiers, who got out of a bases-loaded jam with one out in the fourth. ``We definitely did a great job coming out of the pen.'

Greinke gave up four runs in the fourth by allowing hits to the first five batters. Jean Segura led off with a triple over the head of right fielder Andre Ethier and tied the score at 2-2 on a single to center field by Ryan Braun.

Singles by Aramis Ramirez and Lucroy loaded the bases for Gomez, who gave Milwaukee a 4-2 lead with a ground-rule double over the left field wall.

``Zack's a great teammate,' Gomez said. ``I faced him when he was in Kansas City and he really had my number. So we had that conversation (when Milwaukee was in Los Angeles at the end of April) and I said, `I want to face you, now.' And he said, `all right, but I'm going to do the same. I'm going to strike you out. He probably laughed at my first at-bat (a strikeout). But I continued to look for good pitches to hit. He threw me one and I hit a double.'

Matt Guerrier replaced Greinke and gave up a run-scoring grounder to Yuniesky Betancourt that increased the lead to 5-2. Milwaukee's rally ended when Gomez was picked off third by Guerrier before Jeff Bianchi was caught stealing second.

Brewers starter Hiram Burgos lasted only 3 1-3 innings, as the rookie right-hander gave up two earned runs, six hits, four walks and struck out three.

``It'd sure be nice to get into the seventh inning with some starters,' Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. (Burgos) got himself in trouble but made some pitches to get out of it.'

Lucroy's two-out single in the first gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead.

Los Angeles went ahead in the fourth on run-scoring singles by Greinke and Nick Punto.

However, the Dodgers left 14 runners on base, including nine in the first five innings, to lose for the seventh time in their last eight road games.

``That's really kind of been the story as far as our offense has been concerned,' Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said. ``We had the right people up in the right spots. We had our chances. We just weren't able to do it.'

NOTES: All 10 of the Dodgers' hits were singles. . Milwaukee won for just the second time in its last nine home games. ... Greinke was 25-9 in 1 1/2 seasons with the Brewers. ... The Dodgers were trying to win consecutive road games for just the third time this season. ... Home plate umpire Wally Bell warned both benches when Ronald Belisario threw behind Lucroy's back in the seventh. In the top of the inning, Ethier was hit in the elbow on a pitch from Axford. ... Matt Kemp, from Midwest City, Okla., will donate $1,000 to the Oklahoma tornado relief fund for every homer he hits through the All-Star break.
