July 19, 2013 at 11:58 PM

MILWAUKEE, July 19 (UPI) -- Kyle Lohse blanked Miami over six innings Friday and three relievers completed the shutout to bring Milwaukee a 2-0 win over the Marlins.

The Brewers produced only five hits, but two of them were homers by Juan Francisco in the fourth and Carlos Gomez in the fifth.

Those long balls were enough to boost Milwaukee to a victory in a meeting of the teams with the worst records in the National League.

Lohse (6-7) allowed five hits and struck out five before turning things over to the bullpen.

John Axford allowed a hit in the seventh, after which Jim Henderson and Francisco Rodriguez both worked a perfect inning. Rodriguez earned his 10th save.

None of the four Milwaukee pitchers walked a batter.

Jacob Burner (3-2) endured the loss, giving up five hits and four walks in five innings.
