The Brewers will try to continue their recent production at the plate and win their fifth straight Tuesday night when they face Turner and the Marlins in Miami. With Ryan Braun injured, Jonathan Lucroy stepped up with four hits and Carlos Gomez and Rickie Weeks added three apiece as Milwaukee (26-37) matched a season high with 16 hits in a 6-1 victory in Monday's series opener. "Anytime you have one of your big boys out and you can score and do what we did and get that many hits, it's big," said manager Ron Roenicke, whose club's four-game win streak is its longest since a nine-game run April 14-23.

Brewers bet on former UWM pitcher Josh Uhen
