Eight-run eighth lifts visiting Brewers (in their home park) past Marlins

The Marlins have been in a nosedive since Aug. 27, the day the future hurricane formed as a tropical disturbance off the coast of Africa.

“We talked about this being a big game,” said manager Don Mattingly, referring to the significance of the outcome to the playoff-contending Brewers.

The Brewers walloped four home runs, including a Neil Walker grand slam, to send the Marlins to their sixth consecutive loss.

Reliever Brian Ellington gave up two of the homers — Walker’s and an Eric Thames solo shot — in the Brewers’ eight-run eighth inning.

He thought home plate umpire Ryan Additon signaled a double switch when the Brewers made a straight-up move.
