PHOENIX, July 14 (UPI) -- Didi Gregorius homered and supplied a score-tying hit during a seventh-inning rally Saturday that elevated Arizona to a 5-4 win over Milwaukee.

Trailing 4-2 in the seventh, Jason Kubel's one-out solo shot off Brewers starter Kyle Lohse opened the door for an Arizona comeback.

Cody Ross followed with a single and Miguel Montero walked to chase Lohse. Reliever John Axford entered only to surrender a walk to Martin Prado, loading the bases.

Gregorius then sent a single to shallow right field, scoring Ross to make it 4-4, and pinch-hitter Eric Chavez coaxed another base-on-balls, forcing in Montero with the decisive score.

Gregorius also went deep in the sixth for the National League West-leading Diamondbacks, who took a second straight from Milwaukee.

Will Harris (2-0) got credit for the victory and Brad Ziegler notched his third save for Arizona.

Lohse (5-7) was touched for five runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings as Milwaukee dropped a third straight overall.

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer for the Brewers.
