MIAMI -

Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings, Jonathan Lucroy had four hits and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 Monday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

Carlos Gomez had three hits and two RBIs for Milwaukee, while Lucroy also drove in a pair of runs. Rickie Weeks homered among his three hits for the Brewers, who tied a season high with 16 hits despite playing without slugger Ryan Braun after he aggravating his sore right thumb Sunday against Philadelphia.

Gallardo (5-6) won for the second time since April 29 and became the third Brewers pitcher to strike out 1,000 batters in his career, joining Ben Sheets and Teddy Higuera.
