Sept. 24, 2011 at 11:58 PM

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Corey Hart provided a two-run, pinch-hit double in the seventh inning Saturday, rallying the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 win over Florida.

Trailing 4-3 heading into the frame, the Brewers mounted a comeback when Jonathan Lucroy led off with a single and pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. doubled off Burke Badenhop (2-3).

After Mike Dunn came in to pitch, Hart, batting for Nyjer Morgan, greeted him by ripping a 3-2 pitch into the right-center field gap for the go-ahead runs.

Ryan Braun then sent him home with another RBI double, and the National League Central champion Brewers tied a team record for most home wins (54-23).

LaTroy Hawkins (2-1) earned the victory with a scoreless top of the seventh and John Axford nailed down his 45th save in the ninth.

Emilio Bonifacio smacked a two-run homer and Omar Infante added a solo shot for the Marlins.
