Maui, HI - Brandon Ashley and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson each had 15 points as second-ranked Arizona won its Maui Invitational opener with a 72-53 decision over Missouri. Hollis-Jefferson went 5-for-6 from the field and added six rebounds, while Stanley Jefferson contributed 14 points for the Wildcats, who used their trademark tough defense to dominate the games final 24 minutes and advance to Tuesdays winners bracket matchup with Kansas State. That first game (of a tournament) is always the most difficult, Wildcats head coach Sean Miller. I think we feel good about the fact that weve won. There are a number of things that I know and I think we know we can do better. Arizona (4-0) scored 24 points off 17 Missouri turnovers and held the Tigers to 36.4 percent shooting to overcome a slow offensive start. Their defense was good. It put pressure on us. It forced us to be uncomfortable, said Tigers head coach Kim Anderson. You look at the stats, they had 24 points off turnovers, and basically that was the difference in the game. Montaque Gill-Caesar paced Missouri (2-2) with 13 points and Johnathan Williams III and Keith Shamburger each finished with 11 in the loss. The Tigers will next take on Purdue, which fell to Kansas State in Mondays first game, in the consolation round. The Wildcats struggled to hit shots for most of the first half and found themselves in a 21-21 deadlock with four minutes to go in the period, with Missouri drawing even on an 8-2 run led by six points from Gill-Caesar. Arizona took control from then on, however. Johnson buried a corner trey -- ending an 0-for-8 start for the Wildcats from beyond the arc -- and T.J. McConnell came through with a pair of baskets, part of an 11-4 run that sent the Pac-12 powerhouse into the break owning a 32-25 lead. Hollis-Jefferson then deposited five straight points to open the second half, and Missouri never got closer than eight points down the rest of the way. Coming into the game with the energy I always have is a great feeling for our team, said Hollis-Jefferson, who started the second half after serving as the Wildcats sixth man throughout the season. We need that spark sometimes off the bench or sometimes we may need it to start with, and Coach (Miller) knows that. Arizona put the game out of reach with a 14-4 flurry that began midway through the final frame. The Wildcats held Missouri without a basket for the first three-plus minutes of the stretch, which was capped by Kaleb Tarczewskis hook shot that increased the lead to 63-44 with 4:47 remaining.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Milwaukee Brewers are feeling right at home on the road and gaining more confidence with each win. Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple during a three-run eighth inning rally to lead the Brewers to their fifth straight win, 9-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. Carlos Gomez and Mark Reynolds homered and Jean Segura doubled and drove in a run for Milwaukee, which has won all five games during the streak on the road beginning with a sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said winning on the road can be a huge boost for a club. "When you win on the road, and not just winning but against the teams that were playing, then it becomes really important," Roenicke said. The Brewers snapped a 4-all tie in the eighth when they scored three runs on one hit off Antonio Bastardo (0-1). Reynolds scored the go-ahead run on an error by first baseman Ryan Howard, who let Logan Schafers grounder go into right field. Braun, who hit three homers Tuesday, broke the game open with a two-run triple to the wall in left-centre that made it 7-4. Tyler Thornburg (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory. Braun, who served a 65-game suspension for violations of major league baseballs drug agreement and labour contract, was booed during each of his four putouts and every at-bat - none louder than when he reached third in the eighth. Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the ninth. "Were just getting hit after hit and its fun to be a part of," Reynolds said. "Offences go through this, they just click. Guys get big hits. You go through these streaks where its fun to be a part of and tough to get us out. Were just going to ride this streak out as long as we can." Philadelphia starter Roberto Hernandez allowed four runs - three earned - on seven hits in five innings while coming within one strikeout of matching his career high with nine. "Hernandez threw the ball well," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He was mixing his pitches and did a nice job." Brewers starter Matt Garza gave up four runs - three earned - on eight hits in six innings with four strikeouts and two walks. "I couldnt really find a groove," GGarza said.dddddddddddd "I fought myself for six and am happy to keep my team in there. All that matters is the W. We stack as many as we can and see what happens at the end of September. Thats what you play for." The teams combined for five runs on four hits and two errors in a shaky first inning where both teams looked in early season form. Milwaukee scored a pair of the runs in the top half, bolstered by four-time Gold Glove winner Jimmy Rollins rare error at shortstop. It was a continuation of a problem for Philadelphia, which upped its total to nine errors in eight games. Sandberg, in his first full season as a manager after taking over for fired Charlie Manuel last Aug. 16, has stressed getting back to fundamental baseball. "We definitely have to straighten things up," Sandberg said. "Were working on it." Philadelphia took the lead with three runs in the bottom half that included a Garza balk and second baseman Scooter Gennetts throwing error. Seguras second-inning RBI double tied it at 3 and the Brewers went ahead 4-3 on Gomezs solo homer to left in the fourth. As is his custom, Gomez eschewed the traditional home-run trot for an all-out sprint around the bases. Marlon Byrds single to centre in the fifth tied it at 4. Ben Revere, criticized in Philadelphia on Wednesday for making an error and misplaying another ball in Tuesdays 10-4 home-opening loss, made a spectacular, diving catch to rob Gennett of a hit in the second inning. Roenicke successfully challenged a first-inning out call by second base umpire Adrian Johnson, who incorrectly ruled that Revere beat Garzas throw to second. Replays, though, showed that Segura tagged Reveres leg before he reached the bag. The replay caused a delay of 1:29.
