LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Manny Ramirez homered and drove in three runs Tuesday, and the Los Angeles Dodgers pounded out 18 hits in a 17-4 win over Milwaukee.

Matt Kemp had four hits, including a two-run homer, and finished with five RBI and three runs scored for the Dodgers. They took control with a seven-run sixth inning and went on to win for the fourth time in their last six games -- and put up their highest run total since beating Cincinnati 17-6 in May 1979.

Andre Ethier and Russell Martin had three hits and two RBI apiece for LA.

Hiroki Kuroda (4-5) got the win, allowing three runs on nine hits in six innings with seven strikeouts and one walk.

The Dodgers pounded Brewers' starter and loser Yovani Gallardo (10-8) for 10 hits and nine runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder had two hits and one RBI apiece for Milwaukee, which had a two-game winning streak snapped.
