Yesterday's Results

Brewers 4, Marlins 1

Everything finally worked together in one game for the Brewers. Wily Peralta pitched 6 2/3 solid innings, and the offense came together to score four runs. Two of those came from September callup Matt Clark, who hit his first career major league home run in the 7th and also had a sacrifice fly in the game. Meanwhile, Jonathan Broxton and Francisco Rodriguez worked together to close the door on the Marlins and end the Brewers four-game losing streak.
