MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Todd Hollandsworth drove in three runs, leading Ismael Valdes and the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers 10-4 Thursday for a three-game sweep.
The Brewers began the series with a four-game winning streak, but scored a total of eight runs against the Dodgers.
Adrian Beltre had four hits and drove in two runs and Mark Grudzielanek added three hits. Eric Young scored three times for the Dodgers.
Valdes (3-0) pitched seven innings and allowed four runs and eight hits, including homers by Jeromy Burnitz and Geoff Jenkins.
Cal Eldred (0-1), making just his second start since July 26, lasted only three innings. He allowed six earned runs and six hits.
The Dodgers got two runs in the first when Grudzielanek hit an RBI double and scored on a grounder by Hollandsworth. Milwaukee scored once in the bottom half on Jeff Cirillo's RBI grounder.
Los Angeles broke open the game with four runs in the third inning and three more in the fourth.
Eric Karros hit a two-run double, Hollandsworth tripled and Beltre single in the third.
In the fourth, Steve Falteisek took over for Eldred and walked three of the first four batters he faced. All three scored, with Hollandsworth singling and Beltre doubling.
Gary Sheffield added a sacrifice fly in the fifth for the Dodgers.
Jenkins hit a two-run homer in the fourth. Burnitz connected for his seventh homer, a solo shot, in the fifth.
