    MILWAUKEE -- No confrontations. San Francisco 49ers Jerseys . One hit batter. Two stars on the bench. The Milwaukee Brewers withstood the early exits of outfielders Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun by pounding out 12 hits against Gerrit Cole and two Pittsburgh Pirates relievers in the teams first meeting since a benches-clearing brawl last month. Jonathan Lucroy hit a bases-loaded, two-run single and Marco Estrada had eight strikeouts through six choppy innings in the Brewers 5-2 win Tuesday night. "The other guys are getting on base," manager Ron Roenicke said. "When everybodys contributing it means were getting a lot of people on base through the lineup." Gomez scored the second run on Lucroys single in the third after getting hit by a changeup from Cole (3-3). No heated exchange of words on Tuesday, unlike April 20 when Cole and Gomez got into it on a play at third in Pittsburgh. Gomez and both managers had signalled they were over the ill will left over from a brawl that led to suspensions. Gomez even smiled at first after getting hit by the off-speed pitch in the third, and he scored three batters later on Lucroys bases-loaded single. Cole said he hasnt spoken with Gomez since the brawl, but that they did exchange nods before Gomezs first at-bat. "I think pretty much everybodys on the same page about this. I think weve all moved on," Cole said. Gomez left after the fifth with a tight back that began bothering him Monday. Braun was activated from the disabled list earlier Tuesday, and his departure after the sixth was planned as he gets acclimated in his return from a right oblique injury. Earlier Tuesday, third baseman Aramis Ramirez was placed on the disabled list with a pulled left hamstring. All those players down and the Brewers still scratched out five runs and the dozen hits throughout the lineup. Five came from reserves, including two apiece from the guys who replaced Braun and Gomez -- Khris Davis and the newly called-up Elian Herrera. "Everybodys contributing ... Its important to have that depth on the bench and have guys step up and get it going," Lucroy said. Neil Walker hit a solo homer that landed on the concourse beyond left-centre in the first to extend his hitting streak to five for Pittsburgh. It was one of six hits allowed by Estrada, who looked like he was having trouble much off the night locating his off-speed stuff. He needed 112 pitches to get through his outing, though Roenicke liked how Estrada missed low instead of instead down the middle when getting into trouble. "Threw some great pitches but just couldnt get it locked in where he could just go through an easy inning," Roenicke said. "He did a great job of making the pitches when he needed to and finished up with a real nice ballgame. Jean Segura added two hits, the second after a shot up the middle deflected off the mound and squirted in between first and second to allow Lucroy to score from second for a four-run lead in the seventh. Francisco Rodriguez tossed a hitless ninth for his 16th save, bouncing back from his first blown save on Sunday. Pitching has played a crucial role with Milwaukee racing out to a 25-14 mark and the NL Central lead -- all while enduring injuries to key hitters. Braun finished 0 for 2 with a walk, striking out swinging in the fifth with runners on second and third. Cole allowed seven hits, three walks and three runs in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander with a fastball that reached 100 mph struck out six. "He had to do some yard work tonight in a couple of those innings with men on base and he showed up well," Hurdle said about his developing young hurler. Notes: The Brewers challenged an out call on Lyle Overbays grounder that deflected off the mound with one out and a runner on in the seventh. The call stood after a review of roughly 3 1/2 minutes. ...... Gomez and Pirates OF Travis Snider, who exchanged shoves during last months brawl, ran into each other at a Milwaukee steakhouse during an off day Monday. "We shook hands, he gave me a hug and everything is cool. ... No hard feelings," Gomez said before the game. ... Pittsburgh sends Francisco Liriano (0-3) to the mound Wednesday against Milwaukees Wily Peralta (4-2). Jimmie Ward 49ers Jersey . The Grizzlies erased most of a 25-point deficit before Durant, the leagues scoring champion, got hot. Frank Gore Jersey . In the calls, Hernandez discussed the murder of Odin Lloyd, including his "belief about his criminal liability" and the "extent of his control over persons charged as accessories," according to the request filed Thursday in Fall River Superior Court.As England and Wales prepare to go head-to-head in the Old Mutual Wealth Cup on Sunday, we look at some of the key battles that will go a long way to deciding who will win bragging rights at Twickenham, live on Sky Sports 3. Courtney Lawes v Alun Wyn Jones Wales are boosted by the return to fitness of Alun Wyn Jones The second rows contain two men with a point to prove.Alun Wyn Jones returns to the scene of his last appearance before suffering a foot injury. He will be raring to get back into action, especially against the old enemy and it will be an invaluable opportunity to blow off the cobwebs, find some match fitness and test the foot that has plagued him for so long. Jones has been hitting the headlines since his return to the Wales camp, his team-mates championing his presence in training, setting the standards of how things should be done. He is the kind of talismanic figure his side will need to take on the All Blacks and will provide a huge boost ahead of the Twickenham clash. Courtney Lawes (right) will look to force his way back into England reckoning with a strong performance against Wales Another man keen to impress will be his opposite number, Courtney Lawes.The Northampton man was a key figure during the Stuart Lancaster era but has found himself on the outskirts of Eddie Jones plans since the emergence of Saracens duo George Kruis and Maro Itoje paired with the club form of Joe Launchbury. Jones will be looking to the 45-cap international to come to the fore and showcase his trademark physicality while setting the example to the younger forwards around him.However, there is more to Lawes game than just bone-crunching tackles and his athleticism and deceptive turn of pace could prove vital if he is to get the upper hand on the class operator of Jones.Jack Clifford v Taulupe Faletau Jack Clifford gets a chance to shine in the No 8 shirt in the absence of Billy Vunipola The battle of the No 8s is not one for the faint-hearted as an experienced operator takes on a young gun keen to impress.A stand-out performer every time he pulls on the Welsh jersey, Faletau is a key figure in Warren Gatlands pack. The Bath-bound forward was a model of consistency throughout the World Cup and Six Nations, receiving the accolade of the Welsh Rugby Writers player of the season for his performances.Faletau is a strong ball carrier who will provide Wales the go-forward they need to unleash a dangerous looking backline. Despite his fierce approach to the game, he is ever-present in the Welsh line-up and since the first of his 57 caps against the Barbarians back in June 2011, the 25-year-old has racked up an impressive 4,280 minutes of rugby, putting in 596 carries. The ever present Taulupe Faletau will prove vital to Wales chances against England The man who faces the task of silencing the Faletau is Jack Clifford. The Harlequin has big shoes to fill with Billy Vunipola otherwise engaged with club duties, however the versatile back row had a breakthrough season in the Aviva Premiership, leading to five caps from the bench as England secured the Grand Slam.However, dont be fooled into thinking that Clifford is just there to keep the shirt warm for Vunipola. He has been a key cog in the Harlequins machine that reached the Challenge Cup final, providing a turn of pace and relentless work rate in a young and exciting pack.Ben Youngs v Rhys Webb Rhys Webb has looked sharp for the Ospreys since his return from a long-term foot injury After a difficult World Cup campaign, Ben Youngs came out firing and featured in all of Englands Six Nations matches. The scrum-half found himself on the bench for the decider in Paris, making a telling impact in the closiing minutes. Dante Pettis Jersey. In club colours, Youngs has returned to his orchestrating best, pulling the strings as Leicester made both European and domestic semi-finals.The eye-catching form of his rival Danny Care will be sure to keep the 2013 British and Irish Lions representative on his toes and he will be key in gelling a team of seasoned internationals and uncapped newcomers.Youngs will come up against livewire Rhys Webb. The Ospreys scrum-half has looked sharp since his comeback from the foot injury that forced him out of the World Cup and regained the Welsh No 9 shirt for their final Six Nations game against Italy.  Ben Youngs faces tough competition at scrum-half Despite making just 18 appearances for Wales since his debut against Italy in 2012, Webb has racked up six tries and will be hoping his heads-up style of rugby paired with his composure in the middle will conjure up some magic for Warren Gatlands men.Webb will be fresh and raring to go ahead of his countrys summer tour to take on world champions New Zealand and will be keen to put a marker down in the hotly-contested scrum-half battle.Luther Burrell v Jamie Roberts Luther Burrell says he is over missing the World Cup and is only focused on the upcoming games against Wales and Australia It could be argued that bar Stuart Lancaster, Luther Burrell was the biggest casualty of the Sam Burgess experiment, missing out on a place in the World Cup squad at the expense of the rugby league convert.The Northampton centre will have a big point to prove when he lines up at inside centre against Wales.A dip in form after his World Cup omission has seen Burrell dragged into a battle with young club mate Harry Mallinder for the Northampton centre berth. However, it seems to have been the push the 28-year-old needed, reigniting the passion that had made him one of Englands first choice centres sparking a return to form for the former rugby league man. With Farrell and Slade unavailable due to club commitments and Manu Tuilagi facing a spell on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, now is Burrells time to stake his claim for the England inside centre spot.  Jamie Roberts provides Wales with solidity in both attack and defence However, to impress against Wales he will have to withstand the force that is Jamie Roberts. The Harlequins man is a world-class operator who has chalked up 76 caps for his country and played a decisive role as the Lions took a series victory in Australia in 2013.Roberts, at 6ft 4in and almost 18 stone, provides a rock-solid defensive obstacle as well as the ability to provide a game-making score. In the Six Nations win against Scotland, he put in nine tackles in defence, more than his back three combined, before securing the victory for Wales when he burst over from close range.He is the cement that holds Gatlands backline together and his impact will go a long way to deciding the outcome between the two sides.Watch England v Wales live on Sky Sports 3 HD on Sunday from 2.30pm. Catch the match without a contract for £6.99 on NOW TV.
