Fish Wrap - Marlins 6, Brewers 4

Behind another 3-for-5 night from their lead-off hitter and a solid performance from Ricky Nolasco, the Marlins kept their win streak going as they faced the Brewers Tuesday night at Sun Life Stadium.

The Fish jumped on Dave Bush for three runs in the first inning. Chris Coghlan got the party started with a lead-off home run, and Gaby followed with a triple. After Hanley singled to score Gaby, Dan Uggla drove him in with a double to make it 3-0.

Though he gave up three first-inning runs, Dave Bush settled in and didn't allow another run through six.

It didn't appear the Marlins would need to bother scoring any more runs as Ricky Nolasco shut out the Brewers through five innings. In the sixth, though, Ricky had some trouble keeping the ball in the park. Prince Fielder homered to put the Brewers on the board, and after a single from Casey McGehee, Corey Hart followed with a two-run blast that tied up the game.

Despite the sixth inning struggles, Ricky lasted through the seventh, giving up three runs on seven hits and striking out eight. 

The Marlins got their three runs back against Trevor Hoffman in the bottom of the seventh. Cogz hit his second double of the game, and scored on a double by Jorge Cantu. With two on, Ronny Paulino singled in a pair of runs to make it 6-3.

Clay Hensley struggled when he took over for Ricky in the top of the eighth. After recording two outs, Clay walked two, and gave up a single to Alcides Escobar that plated a run. But that was the end of the scoring for the Brewers.

Leo Nunez recorded his eleventh save of the season, giving Ricky his first win since mid-May, and the Marlins took game two from the Brew Crew.
