Tony Graffanino tied the game with a homer in the fourth and Corey Hart's sacrifice fly later in the inning gave the Milwaukee Brewers the lead in a 3-to-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight.
It was the fourth straight win for the Brewers, while the Diamondbacks lost their seventh straight on the road.
Claudio Vargas, making his first start against his former team, gave up two runs and five hits in five innings for the Brewers. His record improves to 7-and-2.
Milwaukee is 9-and-oh when Vargas starts at Miller Park this season, and Vargas is 5-and-oh there. Vargas was traded to Milwaukee in the offseason along with catcher Johnny Estrada in a six-player deal that sent left-hander Doug Davis to Arizona.
Three relievers closed with four scoreless innings for Milwaukee.
Estrada's run-scoring double brought the Brewers within 2-to-1 in the second inning.
Graffanino led off the fourth with his seventh home run to make it 2-2. With one out, Tony Gwynn doubled down the right field line. He advanced to third on Vargas' third hit of the season and scored on Hart's sacrifice fly.
