MIAMI (AP) - Carlos Gomez had four hits, including two triples, and Jonathan Lucroy drove in four runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
Gomez also drove in three runs and scored three runs. Jean Segura homered for the Brewers, who have won five of six. Alfredo Figaro (1-0) pitched seven scoreless innings to earn his first victory since Sept. 26, 2009 at the Chicago White Sox. He retired 16 in a row at one point and struck out four. Both Gomez and Lucroy had bases-clearing triples as the two combined to go 12 for 24 with 12 RBIs in the three-game series. It was the largest margin of victory for the Brewers this season.
Miami starter Kevin Slowey (2-6) allowed six runs - five earned - and nine hits in five innings. He was on three days' rest after he pitched seven scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory in Saturday's 2-1, 20-inning win over the Mets.
