And then Ronny Paulino had the eventual game-winning hit with a two-run single. Hoffman gave up three runs and three hits in one inning to take the loss. He’s now 1-and-4, and his ERA rose to 11.65 after not allowing a run in his previous three set-up appearances.
Starter Dave Bush gave up three runs in the first, but he held the Marlins scoreless in the next five innings. He left after the sixth with a blister on his middle throwing finger which he suffered in his previous start. Manager Ken Macha said he was not sure Bush could play – and that’s why right-hander Kameron Loe was brought up yesterday from Triple-“A” and reliever Marco Estrada was sent down.
Ricky Nolasco struck out eight in seven innings to get the win for Florida. He’s now 5-4. Leo Nunez pitched the ninth for his 11th save. Chris Coghlan went 3-for-5 with a solo homer, as the Marlins won their third straight. Milwaukee’s Corey Hart hit a two-run shot for his National League-leading 14th homer of the year. Prince Fielder hit a solo blast, as the Brewers have dropped their first two contests at Miami.
Game-Three is tonight. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo goes against Marlins’ right-hander Chris Volstad.
