Looking to remain relevant, the Marlins topped the Brewers 6-3 on Tuesday night.

Miami was able to add a pair against Brewers starter Matt Garza in the top of the third. Christian Yelich singled and stole second base to open the frame before Donovan Solano's RBI single to right field gave the Marlins a one run lead. With two outs, Casey McGehee singled and reached second on a Garza throwing error before a Marcell Ozuna single made it a 2-0 contest.

The Marlins couldn't hold onto the lead, as Tom Koehler allowed two runs in the bottom of the frame. Scooter Gennett and Jonathan Lucroy singled with one out before an Aramis Ramirez double and Gerardo Parra ground ball tied the game at two.

After Garza was taken out of the game, Miami regained the lead in the sixth against Jeremy Jeffress. Ozuna walked with one out and came around to score on a Garrett Jones double in the left center field gap.

Tom Koehler was pulled after five innings during which he allowed two runs and struck out three.

Casey McGehee and Marcell Ozuna ninth inning home runs extended the Marlins' lead in the ninth, and Mike Dunn, Bryan Morris, and Steve Cishek all pitched well out of the bullpen.
