MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers won their season opener on Monday, by a final of  2-0 over the Atlanta Braves at Miller Park.  Aramis Ramirez belted a two-run double in the fourth inning for the game's only scoring.  Yovani Gallardo gave up four hits in six innings with a pair of walks.  He struck out four, moving him into second-place behind Ben Sheets on the Brewers' all-time career strikeout list with 1,084.  Francisco Rodriguez fanned a pair in the ninth to get the save.  Manager Ron Roenicke made K-Rod the closer, replacing Jim Henderson without saying a word about it in advance.  Some of the players said they were surprised.  Ramirez, Scooter Gennett, and Jonathan Lucroy all went 2 for 3 for the Crew.  Ryan Braun received a long standing ovation when he made his first plate appearance since his 65-game drug suspension from last season.  Braun was also the victim of the season's first replay challenge.  It happened in the sixth inning when he grounded to third, and was ruled safe at first.  Braves' manager Fredi Gonzalez challenged the call.  The Major League replay headquarters ruled that the throw beat Braun's foot to the bag, and he was ruled out.  Julio Teheran took the loss, giving up two runs on seven hits with a walk and two strikeouts over six innings.  Andrelton Simmons had two of Atlanta's five hits on the day.  The Brewers won their 25th Opening Day game in their 45-year history, and will host the Braves again tonight.  Right-hander Kyle Lohse faces Braves' left-hander Alex Wood.  Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
