MILWAUKEE -- Carlos Gomez's two-run double highlighted a rally that broke a tie and sent the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night at Miller Park.

Jean Segura led off the fifth inning with a triple and scored on Ryan Braun's base hit, tying the score. Aramis Ramirez and Jonathan Lucroy singled to load the bases, setting the stage for Gomez, who sent Zack Greinke's first offering over Carl Crawford's head, bouncing over the wall in left.

Gomez's hit gave Milwaukee the lead and chased Greinke after four-plus innings. Greinke was charged with five runs, nine hits and three walks with a strikeout and took the loss for the first time this season.

Staked to a three-run lead, the Brewers' bullpen combined to throw 5 2/3 scoreless innings -- extending its streak to 20 -- with Jim Henderson posting his ninth save in as many chances to close out the victory.

Burgos worked himself into and out of jams in the second and third but couldn't avoid trouble in the fourth.

A.J. Ellis flied out to center to open the inning, but Skip Schumacher singled and Burgos followed with a walk to Dee Gordon. Greinke tied the score with a base hit, scoring Schumaker, and Burgos responded by walking Crawford, which loaded the bases.

Nick Punto drove in Gordon with a single, making it 2-1, and bringing Burgos' day to a close after just 3 1/3 innings.

Mike Fiers struck out Adrian Gonzalez and got Matt Kemp to ground into a force at second to end the inning.
