The Milwaukee Brewers salvaged the final game of their series with the Miami Marlins and they did it via the home run ball.
Ryan Braun clubbed his 252nd career home run, surpassing Robin Yount to become the franchise’s all-time leader and Khris Davis homered twice to help the Brewers pull out a 8-7 victory over the Marlins.
Davis has now hit two home runs in a single game for the fifth time in his career and fourth time this season.
Braun’s record breaker came off of former Brewers starter Chris Narveson, a 2-1 pitch that sailed over the fence in right field. It’s his 22nd home run of the season.
Wily Peralta (4-7) struggled through five innings but left with the lead and picked up the win. Corey Knebel, Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress held Miami in check until the ninth when the Brewers called on closer Francisco Rodriguez to mop up. K-Rod did surrender a two-out home run to Marcell Ozuna but struck out former Brewer Casey McGehee to move past Joe Nathan and into sole possession of seventh place on the all-time saves list with 378.
Rodriguez earned his 30th save of the season in 30 tries and 35th in a row, dating back to last season.
The Brewers take the day off on Thursday and return to action on Friday night.
