Recap: Milwaukee vs. Miami

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - It was a difficult first half of the season for Yovani Gallardo, but on Saturday, he started the second half with a very solid performance.

Gallardo allowed just five hits and two walks over 6 1/3 innings as the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Miami Marlins, 6-0, in the middle test of a three-game series Saturday.

For the 27-year-old Gallardo (8-8), it was the first time he didn't allow a run since June 15 against the Reds. It was also just the fifth time he's pitched over six innings in 21 starts this season.

"Really nice job by the pitching staff," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "Yovani had great command today. His curve was really good, as well as his fastball and slider. When we command the ball, we're really good."

Jonathan Lucroy went 4-for-4 with two RBI and was a triple short of the cycle. Ryan Braun also drove in two runs for the Brewers, who have won three straight.

Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi (2-1) struggled, lasting just four innings. He surrendered all six runs on 10 hits and a pair of walks.

The Marlins have been shut out in both games of this series and are on a three-game losing streak.

"In all honesty, I thought we came out flat, especially offensively," said Marlins manager Mike Redmond. "I know the guys are trying but nothing is going right now. We're getting shut down."

The Brewers struck early, scoring six runs over the first four innings.

Norichika Aoki and Jean Segura hit back-to-back singles to start the first and both scored on a double to center by Braun.

They had a chance to score more after Lucroy singled to right and Rickie Weeks drew a two-out walk, loading the bases. However, Jeff Bianchi struck out to end the inning.

In the third, Lucroy clubbed a solo shot to right. Giancarlo Stanton made an attempt to grab the ball, but it bounced off his glove and over the right field wall.

Milwaukee tacked on three more runs in the fourth. Weeks began the frame by hammering a 3-1 fastball to center. Bianchi ripped a double to left and scored on an Aoki base hit up the middle. Later in the inning, Lucroy delivered a two-out ground-rule double to center, plating Aoki.

The Marlins had opportunities to score in the sixth and seventh innings, but squandered both of them.

With the bases loaded and one out in the sixth, Logan Morrison grounded into a double play to end the inning.

Marcell Ozuna walked to start the seventh and got to third after Derek Dietrich singled and pinch-hitter Donovan Solano flew out to right. Brandon Kintzler came in relief for Gallardo and got Jeff Mathis to pop out and struck out Juan Pierre.

Donovan Hand, Michael Gonzalez and Burke Badenhop combined for a scoreless ninth.
