MILWAUKEE, July 20 (UPI) -- Yovani Gallardo fired 6 1/3 scoreless innings and Jonathan Lucroy went 4-for-4 with a homer Saturday in the Milwaukee Brewers' 6-0 whitewash of Miami.

Gallardo (8-8) baffled the Marlins, who mustered only five hits and a pair of walks. Gallardo recorded five strikeouts.

After Ryan Braun's two-run double in the first inning gave Milwaukee a quick lead, Lucroy pounded a solo homer in the next frame for a 3-0 advantage.

He also provided an RBI double in the fourth, capping a three-run Brewers outburst.

Rickie Weeks homered and Norichika Aoki chipped in two hits, including a run-scoring single, as Milwaukee claimed a third straight victory.
