MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Lee doubled and scored in his Miami debut, Mark Buerhle struck out a season-best eight over 7 2-3 innings and the Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 Thursday to split the four-game series.
Buehrle (8-8) allowed only six hits to the Brewers, who had produced 25 runs the previous three games. The left-hander was challenged in the fourth when Milwaukee had runners at the corners with two outs, but he struck out Rickie Weeks to end the threat.
The Brewers failed to advance a runner to third the rest of the way.
Greg Dobbs hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer off Jose Veras in the top of the ninth for Miami.
Mike Fiers (3-3) allowed two runs on seven hits for the Brewers. He walked one and struck out nine, one off his season high.
