Giancarlo Stanton came off of the disabled list and belted a 2-run homer in the 8th inning to give the Miami Marlins a 5-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
The Brewers trailed early but rebounded to take a 4-3 lead before Stanton’s blow in the 8th off of Brewers reliever Jim Henderson.
Wily Peralta struggled in the second inning, surrendering 3-runs on 5-hits in the frame but settle down after that.
Michael Gonzalez and John Axford combined to work a scoreless 7th before Henderson served up Stanton’s blast in the 8th.
The series is tied 1-1 with the third and final game set for tonight in Miami. Alfredo Figaro (0-0, 4.08) pitches for the Brewers. Kevin Slowey (1-5, 4.16) goes for the Marlins.
