MILWAUKEE —Mark Buehrle welcomed Carlos Lee to the Marlins with some
good-natured ribbing and, more importantly, a victory. Britton Colquitt Jersey . Lee doubled and
scored in his debut, Buerhle struck out a season-best eight over 7 2-3 innings
and Miami beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Thursday to split the four-game series.
Buehrle (8-8) allowed only six hits to the Brewers, who had produced 25 runs the
previous three games. “Maybe theyre tired of swinging the bats so much and
getting runs,” he said. “We scored just a few more than they did.” The
left-hander was challenged in the fourth when the Brewers had runners at the
corners with two outs, but he struck out Rickie Weeks to end the threat. Buehrle
said that he barely remembered Lee from their days together on the Chicago White
Sox, but he made sure not to let Lee forget his first day as a Marlin. “I got on
him before the game,” Buehrle said. “I said, I thought we were getting a run
producer. You only have 29 RBIs.” Lee gave it back as good as he got it. “He
said he hasnt had a guy on base, for something like three months, to drive in,”
Buehrle recounted Lees response. When Lee struck out swinging, the teasing
continued. “We didnt acquire you for this,” Buehrle said of the heckling. “Then,
of course the double, this is what we got (you for).” The jabs continued
throughout the game, but after the fourth inning, the Brewers failed to advance
a runner to third. Lee took it all with a smile, but was happier with the
outcome. “Especially winning the game, its awesome,” Lee said. “Anything I can
do, Im up for it.” Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen relieved Buerhle with one on
and two outs in the eighth, and Steve Cishek stranded Cody Ransom at second when
he struck out pinch-hitter Travis Ishikawa. Buehrle, who came in with a 1.29 ERA
in his last two starts, has three consecutive wins with at least seven
strikeouts. His current run came after four straight losses. Milwaukee starter
Mike Fiers (3-3) said that Buehrle is tough even though for most of the game he
was just as good. “Everything kind of looks like a fastball,” Fiers said of
Buehrles pitching. “Thats why hes one of the best pitchers. To get a couple runs
off him is big, but he had one of those games today.” The last four Brewers
games have been one-run games and decided in the last at-bat. Greg Dobbs made it
tougher for Milwaukee to duplicate that when he hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer
off Jose Veras in the top of the ninth for Miami. Randy Choate started the ninth
and immediately hit Norichika Aoki, prompting Guillen to bring in Heath Bell,
who got Ryan Braun to hit into his third double play of the game. “Its rare,”
Braun said of his futility. “Its a rare occurrence.” Aramis Ramirez then
singled, but Bell struck out Corey Hart to end it. Lee needed just two at-bats
in his first game with the Marlins to make his presence known. He struck out in
the first before doubling in the fourth. Hustling all the way, he scored easily
on Logan Morrisons single. “Thats the way I play the game,” Lee said. “I always
enjoy my time. Have fun, and like I say, try my best.” Morrison snapped Fiers
streak of scoreless innings at 21 1-3 with the run-scoring hit. Fiers allowed
two runs on seven hits. He walked one and struck out nine, one off his season
high. Fiers was just as tough as Buehrle and limited Miami to that one run on
six hits until getting chased in the eighth. Jose Reyes singled and took third
on Lees one-out single. Manny Parra relieved Fiers, who left to a standing
ovation. Morrison hit into a fielders choice to score Reyes before Veras took
over for Parra and retired Justin Ruggiano on a grounder to second to end the
inning. Lee, acquired in a trade with the Houston Astros on Wednesday, started
at first base. NOTES: The temperature was 101 degrees at first pitch. ... Aoki
extended his Brewers-best hitting streak to 12 games. ... Marlins All-Star RF
Giancarlo Stanton missed his third consecutive game with discomfort in his right
knee. ... Miami, which also received cash in the Lee trade, sent a pair of
minor-leaguers, INF Matt Dominguez and LHP Rob Rasmussen, to Houston. ... After
Gomez struck out swinging in the sixth, he slammed his bat and broke it. ...
Justin Ruggiano went 7 for 16 with three home runs, a double and five RBIs in
the series. Peyton Manning Orange Jersey . The team also
announced Tuesday it had signed two guards who played in Europe last season,
Jamar Smith and Dionte Christmas. Willis McGahee Jersey .Va. —Ted Potter Jr.s

Jermichael Finley is remaining with the Packers, signing a new contract with
Green Bay.WASHINGTON—First baseman Adam LaRoche and left-handed reliever
Sean Burnett are free agents after voiding mutual options in their contracts
with the Washington Nationals. LaRoche bypassed a $10 million option for 2013,
while Burnett would have earned $3.5 million next season under his old deal. The
Nationals still could sign bothh players, who can have a chance to test the
free-agent market. Rahim Moore Jersey. LaRoches 33 homers and
100 RBIs helped the Nationals win their first NL East division title this
season, and he collected his first Gold Glove this week. Burnett went 1-2 with a
2.38 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 56 2-3 innings over 70 appearances in 2012. ’ ’ ’
