Edmonds powers Brewers

Jim Edmonds hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Washington Nationals 7-5 Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Miller Park.

The Brewers won the game as -140 favorites, while the 12 runs went as a PUSH against the posted over/under (9.5) set by sportsbooks.

Kameron Loe picked up the win in relief, and John Axford closed out the ninth for his 14th save.

Sean Burnett allowed two runs in relief and was tagged with the Nationals loss.
