National League Game Summary - Milwaukee at Miami|
(Saturday, May 24th)
Final Score: Miami 2, Milwaukee 1
Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - After Miami and Milwaukee combined for a
Marlins Park-record seven home runs in the series opener, the two teams were
part of a pitchers' duel in the second matchup on Saturday.
Jacob Turner (1-2) tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing eight hits and a
walk to help the Marlins to a 2-1 win over the Brewers.
"He has great stuff," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said of Turner. "He can win
here and it's up to him. Hopefully that was a good step in that direction."
Steve Cishek recorded the final four outs to nail down his 10th save of the
Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jeff Baker each knocked in a run for the Marlins,
who have won three of their last four.
"It was a big win for us after a tough loss last night," said Redmond. "These
guys keep finding a way to win and that's what it's all about."
Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta (4-4) was the tough-luck loser, allowing one
run on six hits over six innings with five strikeouts.
Casey McGehee singled to lead off the second and Saltalamacchia brought him in
two batters later with a double into the right-field corner to give the
Marlins a 1-0 lead.
The Marlins had a chance to add insurance runs in the fifth. With runners on
first and third and one out, Peralta worked his way out of the jam with back-
to-back strikeouts of Giancarlo Stanton and McGehee to end the threat.
Stanton, who smacked two homers on Friday, went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts
in the win.
Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez each wrapped singles around a Jonathan Lucroy
lineout in the sixth, then Mark Reynolds slapped a single into left that
appeared to have tied the game.
Gomez, however, was gunned out at third just steps before Braun crossed home
and the Brewers remained scoreless.
"This game is interesting from game-to-game with what can happen," said
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "We got some hits today. We had a couple of
chances, especially that one with (Gomez) at third. It's certainly different
Turner's day came to a close in the seventh when Khris Davis poked a one-out
double into left.
Mike Dunn entered and struck out pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks, then got pinch-
hitter Elian Herrera to go down swinging to end the inning.
Adeiny Hechavarria led off the home seventh with a single to right, stole
second and scored on pinch-hitter Baker's RBI single.
Christian Yelich then walked before Derek Dietrich grounded into a fielder's
choice to put runners at the corners.
Tyler Thornburg dodged Stanton by striking out the slugger, and McGehee
grounded out sharply to end the inning.
With a runner on first and one out in the eighth, Lucroy blasted a double off
the base of the wall in right that scored Braun to cut the deficit in half.
Gomez then struck out, but Saltalamacchia was charged with a throwing error on
the dropped third strike, and both runners advanced to second and third.
Reynolds popped out to short before Cishek came on to finish off the visitors.
Cishek struck out Scooter Gennett to end the eighth and completed the save by
striking out two in the ninth.
Peralta entered the contest with a 1-0 record and 2.70 ERA in three lifetime
starts against Miami ... Milwaukee finished with 11 hits, while the Marlins
collected eight ... The Brewers were 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position
... Miami was 2-for-11 with RISP.
