National League Game Summary - Milwaukee at Miami|
(Wednesday, June 12th)
Final Score: Milwaukee 10, Miami 1
Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Carlos Gomez finished 4-for-5 with two triples
and three RBI as the Milwaukee Brewers dismantled the Miami Marlins, 10-1, to
win the rubber match of a three-game series.
Jonathan Lucroy added a three-run triple in the first inning and ended with
four RBI. Jean Segura belted a solo home run for the Brewers, who have been
scoring runs despite not having slugger Ryan Braun in the lineup due to
nagging thumb injury.
"He has put together quite a good season so far," said Brewers manager Ron
Roenicke about Gomez. "He continues to have good at bats."
Alfredo Figaro (1-0) spun seven scoreless innings to get his first major
league win since Sept. 26, 2009. The right-hander surrendered three hits
with four strikeouts in his third start of the year.
Kevin Slowey (2-6), who got the win in the marathon game against the Mets last
week with seven scoreless relief innings, was shelled for six runs -- five
earned -- on nine hits over five frames.
"The game had to do a whole lot less with the number of days rest and more to
do with me executing pitches," said Marlins starter Slowey.
Giancarlo Stanton drove in the lone run for the Marlins.
Norichika Aoki and Gomez each singled in the first inning, and Aramis Ramirez
was hit-by-pitch to load the bases with one out. Lucroy cleared the bases with
a triple to right-center field.
Segura connected on his 10th homer of the year, a shot to left-center to begin
the third, and upped the lead to 4-0.
Following a Scooter Gennett single to left in the fourth, Figaro hit a bunt
pop single that dropped between third baseman Ed Lucas and catcher Rob
Brantly. Both runners advanced a base on Lucas' throwing error to first. Aoki
drove in Gennett with a sacrifice fly to left.
Gomez tripled to start the fifth and was driven in two batters later with
Lucroy sacrifice fly to center.
Edgar Olmos came in relief for Slowey in the sixth, but the outcome was the
almost identical. Gomez delivered another triple. The hit to right came with
two outs and drove in three. Figaro and Aoki singled while Segura worked a
walk all with two outs to load the bases. Gomez cleared them and walked home
after second baseman Derek Dietrich skipped the ball into the crowd trying to
throw him out at third.
Miami's only run came in the ninth when Stanton grounded into a fielder's
choice to score pinch-hitter Justin Ruggiano.
Marlins third baseman Placido Polanco missed his second straight game with
back stiffness ... The Brewers lead the majors with 29 triples ... Segura
extended his hitting streak to nine games ... The Brewers have gone a season-
high nine consecutive games without committing an error ... The Marlins went
0-for-4 with runners in scoring position ... The Brewers' seven wins in June
have already surpassed their total for May (6) ... Lucroy celebrates his 27th
birthday on Thursday.
