Reynolds helps Brewers beat Marlins 9-5
MIAMI (AP) — Mark Reynolds hit a pair of two-run homers Friday and the Milwaukee Brewers won a record-setting slugfest at Marlins Park, beating Miami 9-5.
Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones hit two solo homers apiece for Miami, and Khris Davis homered for Milwaukee. The teams combined for seven homers, the most since the pitcher-friendly ballpark opened in 2012.
Reynolds homered in the fourth and again in the fifth, increasing his season total to 11. It was his 20th career multihomer game.
Milwaukee didn’t need slugger Ryan Braun, who sat out after a flare-up of the oblique strain that sent him to the disabled list earlier this season. The Brewers hope he can rejoin the lineup by Sunday.
