MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Lee doubled and scored in his Miami debut, Mark Buerhle struck out a season-best eight over 7 2-3 innings and the Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 Thursday to split the four-game series.
Buehrle (8-8) allowed only six hits to the Brewers, who had produced 25 runs the previous three games. The left-hander was challenged in the fourth when the Brewers had runners at the corners with two outs, but he struck out Rickie Weeks to end the threat.
The Brewers failed to advance a runner to third the rest of the way.
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen relieved Buerhle with one on and two outs in the eighth, and Steve Cishek stranded Cody Ransom at second when he struck out pinch-hitter Travis Ishikawa.
Buehrle, who came in with a 1.29 ERA in his last two starts, has three consecutive wins with at least seven strikeouts. His current run came after four straight losses.
Greg Dobbs hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer off Jose Veras in the top of the ninth for Miami.
