Brewers 6, Marlins 5

Associated Press  |  Last updated July 02, 2012
Pinch-hitter Norichika Aoki drove in the go-ahead run with a safety squeeze in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 6-5 on Monday night. Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally with a leadoff double. He moved up on Martin Maldonado's single to right and scored when Aoki greeted Randy Choate with a bunt single that gave Milwaukee a 6-5 lead. Steve Cishek then replaced Choate and retired the next three batters to give Miami a chance, but John Axford retired the Marlins in order for his 14th save. Justin Ruggiano hit a two-run homer and finished with a career-high four RBIs for Miami, which committed three errors that led to two unearned runs. Third baseman Hanley Ramirez had two of the miscues. Zack Greinke allowed five runs and six hits in six innings for Milwaukee, but remained unbeaten in 22 home starts since he was acquired by the Brewers. Carlos Gomez homered in the fifth and pinch-hitter Travis Ishikawa came through with a tying two-run single in the sixth, handing a no-decision to Milwaukee's best starter. Miami right-hander Carlos Zambrano also worked six innings, allowing five runs, three earned, and five hits. He struck out two, walked four and hit a batter.
