Well, that was kind of fun.

The Brewers opened the second "half" of the 2013 season with a 2-0 win over the Marlins tonight, powered by Kyle Lohse and the long ball. Lohse pitched six shutout innings tonight and allowed five hits, walking none and striking out five. He needed 105 pitches to record 18 outs, but was able to overcome fouling a bunt off his face early in the game.

The most encouraging development of the day might be Carlos Gomez's 15th home run, snapping a 2-for-34 skid. Two of his last three hits have been homers. Aside from tonight's pair of homers, though, the Brewers only had three other hits.

Francisco Rodriguez recorded the final three outs for for his tenth save of the season and 304th of his career. He's now recorded double-digit saves in nine of the last ten seasons.

This series continues tomorrow night at 6:10. Yovani Gallardo will take on Nathan Eovaldi with a possible series win on the line.
