And with that, for the first time all season, the Brewers have swept a team that was not the Pirates.

The Brewers won in come-from-behind fashion for the third consecutive day, as the Marlins took a 1-0 lead on a wild pitch in the second inning, but the Brewers responded with two in the bottom half on a home run from Bill Hall and didn't trail the rest of the way. Prince Fielder's solo home run in the fifth gave the Brewers the lead for good.

Dave Bush bent but didn't break today, allowing single runs in the second, fourth and fifth (one unearned). All told, he pitched seven innings, allowed six hits and a walk, and struck out seven. Mark DiFelice pitched a perfect eighth and Trevor Hoffman pitched the ninth for his third save in as many days.

Mike Rivera returned from the DL today and went 2-for-3 before being replaced by Jason Kendall in the eighth. Mat Gamel got his first at bat of the season in the eighth and struck out.
