Marlin's Sweep The Brewers, Close to Within 2 Games in The NL Wild Card
Josh Johnson (12-6) won his third straight decision, striking out seven in a season-high 7 2/3 innings. He allowed two runs and eight hits. Joe Borowski struck out the side in the ninth for his 31st save in 35 chances. Dan Uggla hit his 20th homer and added a sacrifice fly for the Marlins (64-66), who had not been within two games of .500 since they were 1-3 before losing on April 9.
The Marlins start a six-game trip Tuesday at St. Louis.
