Despite a leadoff home run by Emilio Bonifacio and a small comeback by the Marlins in the later innings, this game was never really in doubt.  The Brewers scored three runs in the second inning, four in the third inning, and tacked on one more in the fourth for an 8-1 lead.  The Marlins couldn't come back from that. 

Chris Narveson went 6.1 innings with five hits, five walks, and five strikeouts.  Overall, he gave up four runs, including two home runs. 

The Brewers scored all nine of their runs with just two extra base hits:  A solo homer from Ryan Braun and a Jerry Hairston double. Rickie Weeks was 3-4 with an RBI and two runs scored.  George Kottaras was 2-4 with two RBI and a run. 

The Cardinals beat the Cubs again with yet another Braves loss.  With three games left, the Braves wild card lead is down to one.
