Gallardo, Lucroy lead Brewers over Marlins, 6-0

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Yovani Gallardo pitched a shutout into the seventh inning and Jonathan Lucroy and Rickie Weeks belted home runs, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

Gallardo (8-8) gave up five hits in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out five batters and walked two. Four relievers combined to preserve the shutout as the Brewers held the Marlins without a run for the second consecutive game and extended Miami's scoreless streak to 24 innings.

Lucroy collected four hits in four at-bats and finished a triple short of a cycle.

The Brewers continued their dominance at home against the Marlins, having won 13 of the last 16 games at Miller Park, dating to 2009.

The Brewers got to Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi (2-1) for two runs in the first inning.
