Dear Marlins,
You’re welcome.





The Brewers fell behind 1-0 in the first as Jeff Suppan got two quick outs before surrendering a double and an RBI single. They got those runs right back in the top of the second as Andrew Miller melted down, allowing six straight Brewers to reach base including bases-loaded walks to Jason Kendall and Jeff Suppan. The Brewers ended their half-inning with a 3-1 lead. Suppan allowed a run in the bottom of the inning to make it 3-2. Casey McGehee drove in a run in the 5th to make it 4-2, which is how Suppan left it after 5 1/2. Enter Jorge Julio. Two singles, two HBP, a walk, and an error later, Todd Coffey had to come in and clean up the mess. It was 7-4 after that inning and that's where it stays as the Brewers, missing Mike Cameron and Ryan Braun thanks to knee problems and a foul ball off the leg, respectively, couldn't mount a comeback.
