Gomez helps Brewers beat Tigers in opener

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - Back in the lineup a day after being beaned, Carlos Gomez led off the game with a home run and added a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.

Gomez was hit in the left earflap by a pitch from New York Mets rookie Noah Syndergaard on Sunday, but he played in the series opener at Detroit, and he began the game with a drive to left off Kyle Lobstein (3-4).

With the score tied at 2 and two outs in the seventh, Gomez singled up the middle to score Luis Sardinas from second. Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) earned the win.

Milwaukee's Jonathan Broxton worked through a jam in the eighth, and Francisco Rodriguez finished for his eighth save in as many chances.
