Brewers blow lead in 8th inning; fall to Marlins
MIAMI (AP) -- Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homer since coming off the disabled list, a two-run drive with two outs in the eighth inning that lifted the Miami Marlins to a 5-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
With Juan Pierre on first, Stanton connected on the first pitch from Jim Henderson (2-2), sending a drive over the wall in left-center. It was his fourth home run this year. He was activated from the DL on Monday.
Chad Qualls (2-0) pitched a perfect eighth and Steve Cishek a scoreless ninth for his seventh save.
Derek Dietrich had a two-run homer for Miami, which has won three of four.
The Brewers took a 4-3 lead in the seventh when Yuniesky Betancourt tripled in a run to tie it before scoring the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett's suicide squeeze.
