Christian Yelich slugs go-ahead 2-run triple in 8th, helps Brewers beat Marlins 7-5

SHARE NOW

MIAMI (AP) — Christian Yelich hit a go-ahead two-run triple in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 on Tuesday night.

William Contreras had two hits and three RBIs, and Willy Adames doubled twice for the NL Central-leading Brewers (28-20).

Trailing 5-4, Jake Bauers doubled against Marlins reliever A.J. Puk (0-5) to lead off the eighth and Contreras drew a two-out walk. Yelich then cleared the bases with a drive to deep right-center that put the Brewers ahead 6-5. Adames’ RBI double scored Yelich and chased Puk.

Tobias Myers (1-2) pitched a scoreless seventh and Joel Payamps followed with a perfect eighth. A night after squandering a one-run lead in the ninth, Trevor Megill struck out the side to earn his seventh save.

Dane Myers’ sacrifice fly capped a three-run sixth inning off Brewers starter Robert Gasser and gave Miami a 5-4 lead. Jazz Chisholm Jr. scored from second on Otto Lopez’s sacrifice bunt to make it 4,-3 and Christian Bethancourt hit a game-tying single ahead of Myers.

Making his third major league start, Gasser allowed five runs, four earned, and 10 hits.

Milwaukee struck quickly against Miami starter Trevor Rogers with single runs in the first and second. Contreras’ RBI double put the Brewers on the board and Blake Perkins’ run-scoring single made it 2-0.

The Marlins narrowed the gap on López’s RBI single in the second before Contreras’ two-run single in the fourth extended the lead for Milwaukee.

Rogers’ outing ended after 3 2/3 innings. The left-hander allowed four runs and six hits, walked four and struck out four.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Brewers: Placed RHP Joe Ross (low back strain) on the 15-day injured list and recalled Myers from Triple-A Nashville. Ross started the series opener Monday and exited after the first inning.

Marlins: Reinstated INF Tim Anderson (lower back tightness) from the injured list and optioned INF Tristan Gray to Triple-A Jacksonville. Anderson went 2 for 4 and scored a run in his return.

UP NEXT

RHP Freddy Peralta (3-2, 4.17 ERA) will start the series finale for the Brewers on Wednesday. LHP Jesús Luzardo (1-3, 5.02 ERA) will go for the Marlins.
