The Milwaukee Brewers (78-69) connected on 12 hits Friday night, leading the way for a 10-2 route against the Miami Marlins (68-79) at Miller Park. Milwaukee is technically the away team in the series as the two-game showdown moved to Wisconsin due to Hurricane Irma impacts on South Florida.
Four different Brewers homered, including a Neil Walker grand slam in the eighth inning. Josh Hughes (4-3) snagged the win while pitching 1.0 innings and fanning one batter.
Milwaukee sits three games behind the Chicago Cubs for the top spot in the NL Central and two and a half game back of the Colorado Rockies for the final NL Wild Card position. The Brewers hit the diamond again today at 6:10 pm.
