Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homer since coming off the disabled list, a two-run drive with two outs in the eighth inning that lifted the Miami Marlins to a 5-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
With Juan Pierre on first, Stanton connected on the first pitch from Jim Henderson (2-2), sending a drive over the wall in left-center. It was his fourth home run this year. He was activated from the DL on Monday.
Chad Qualls (2-0) pitched a perfect eighth and Steve Cishek a scoreless ninth for his seventh save.
Derek Dietrich had a two-run homer for Miami, which has won three of four.
The Brewers took a 4-3 lead in the seventh when Yuniesky Betancourt tripled in a run to tie it before scoring the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett's suicide squeeze.
Milwaukee's four-game winning streak was snapped.
Wily Peralta allowed three runs and five hits - all in the second inning - with a walk and a strikeout in six innings.
Jacob Turner gave up four runs - three earned - and five hits in seven innings. He walked two, struck out six and threw two wild pitches.
After Rickie Weeks walked with one out in the seventh, Betancourt hit a line drive to right. Stanton ran to his left and slid feet first but failed to stop the ball from getting past him for a triple.
Betancourt broke from third as Gennett, hitting for Peralta, laid down a bunt to third baseman Ed Lucas. Betancourt scored before Lucas threw out Gennett.
Dietrich's two-run homer highlighted Miami's three-run second.
Marcell Ozuna opened with a single and scored on Logan Morrison's double to left-center. Dietrich followed with his sixth home run, a shot to right.
Milwaukee scored an unearned run in the fourth to make it 3-1.
Carlos Gomez led off by reaching first when Turner threw a wild pitch on a swinging strike three. Gomez advanced to third on Turner's errant pickoff throw and scored on Jonathan Lucroy's sacrifice fly.
Milwaukee manufactured a run in the sixth to get to 3-2.
Jean Segura opened with a single off Lucas' glove and then stole second. He advanced to third on Gomez's grounder to second and scored when Aramis Ramirez grounded out to third.
Morrison doubled leading off the seventh but was stranded at third.
NOTES: The crowd of 13,110 was a season-low at Marlins Park. ... LF Ryan Braun (right thumb) was not in the Brewers lineup for a second straight night. Braun and the Brewers hope a trip to the disabled list can be avoided. ... Marlins manager Mike Redmond said OF Chris Coghlan would be ''out for a while'' after an MRI showed a back strain. Coghlan was put on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what then was called a right calf nerve irritation.

Last season, the Brewers had a bullpen...
