PHOENIX - Didi Gregorius hit one of three Arizona solo home runs and drove in the tying run during a three-run seventh inning, and the Diamondbacks rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 on Saturday.

Miguel Montero and Jason Kubel also homered and Eric Chavez drew a bases-loaded walk to drive in the go-ahead run for the Diamondbacks, who have won three straight overall and all six meetings against Milwaukee this season.

Jonathan Lucroy hit his 13th home run for the Brewers, who have lost four straight.

Will Harris (2-0) threw a perfect seventh inning in relief of Randall Delgado for the win. Brad Ziegler pitched the ninth for his third save overall and second in three nights.

Brewers starter Kyle Lohse (5-7) allowed only five base runners in 6 1/3 innings, but all five scored.

With Milwaukee leading 4-2 in the bottom of the seventh, Lohse retired Paul Goldschmidt before allowing Kubel's home run. Cody Ross singled and Montero walked, ending Lohse's night in favor of John Axford.

Axford didn't record an out.

The right-hander walked Martin Prado on four pitches to load the bases, gave up a game-tying single to Gregorius and issued a bases-loaded walk to pinch hitter Chavez, scoring Montero to give Arizona its first lead at 5-4.

Lohse allowed four hits, walked one and struck out five.

Lohse gave the Brewers a 1-0 lead in the second when he drove in Logan Schafer from second on a single up the middle.

Montero tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth on the Diamondbacks' first hit.

But in the sixth, Jean Segura singled and Lucroy followed with his second home run in three games to put the Brewers ahead 3-1.

Inside pitch

• Lohse has allowed 19 home runs in 115 1/3 innings, tying Washington's Dan Haren for the most allowed by an NL pitcher this season.

• Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun missed his third straight game on bereavement leave. Braun played Tuesday after missing 26 games with an inflamed nerve in his right hand, then sat out Wednesday's game with a sore right thumb before leaving the team to deal with a family medical issue. Players on the bereavement list must miss at least three games but no more than seven.

• Brewers righty Marco Estrada had his throwing session scheduled for Saturday pushed back to today. Estrada, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring, was supposed to throw off flat ground before moving to live batting practice and three minor-league rehab starts. He's not expected to return for at least another three weeks.

• The Diamondbacks have at least one extra-base hit in a major-league-best 78 straight games.

• Arizona righty Ian Kennedy (3-5), 0-2 with a 6.48 ERA in his past six starts, will take on righty Wily Peralta (6-9) and the Brewers in the teams' last game before the All-Star Break.

Peralta is coming off his first career complete game.
