St. Louis, MO (NNCNOW.com) --- Ryan Braun broke Milwaukee's scoreless streak with a two-run homer, and Jonathan Lucroy hit a solo home run in the 10th inning to give the Brewers a 4-3 win over St. Louis Sunday to avoid the sweep.

Braun's two-run shot broke a Brewers team-record 32 innings without scoring. Milwaukee hadn't scored a run since the second inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

Milwaukee was down in a run in the ninth until Yuniesky Betancourt hit an RBI double to bring around Carlos Gomez. Marco Estrada pitched six strong innings for the Brewers giving up three earned runs while striking out seven.

Milwaukee (3-8) returns home to host the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday, April 16 at 7:10 p.m.
