Recap


Brewers 13, Marlins 12 (10): Aramis Ramirez belted a two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning as host Milwaukee rebounded after squandering a late seven-run lead to defeat the Marlins for the 10th straight time.

After Jose Reyes redeemed himself from two previous errors with a solo blast in the top of the 10th inning, Ramirez responded with a shot off closer Heath Bell (2-4) in the bottom of the frame to whip Miller Park into a frenzy.

The blast made a winner out of Livan Hernandez (2-1), who served up Reyes' blast to the upper deck in right-center field for his third homer of the season.

Ryan Braun belted a three-run homer to highlight a six-run sixth inning. Corey Hart, who led off the frame with a homer, joined Rickie Weeks with three hits and two runs scored as the Brewers equaled their season high with their fourth straight victory.

Miami played without two key cogs as All-Star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton and third baseman Hanley Ramirez did not start due to sore knees. The Marlins weren't fazed by the lack of manpower as Logan Morrison and John Buck belted two-run homers and Justin Ruggiano and Scott Cousins also went deep as the club registered a season high in runs.

Miami chipped away at a 9-2 deficit with a three-run effort in the seventh, highlighted by Ruggiano's second blast in as many games.

After Milwaukee scratched for two more runs, the Marlins answered as Buck belted a two-run homer, Cousins added a solo shot and Greg Dobbs capped the six-run eighth inning with a sacrifice fly to tie the score at 11-11.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Braun's homer was his third in four games. ... Aoki extended his hitting streak to 10 games with an RBI single in the third inning. ... Milwaukee has won 10 of its last 13 at Miller Park. ... The Brewers last won four straight from May 28-31. ... Donovan Solano replaced Ramirez and went 2-for-5 while Dobbs went 1-for-4 in place of Stanton. ... The last time the Marlins defeated the Brewers was a 4-0 triumph on Sept. 25, 2010.
