MILWAUKEE (AP) — Pinch-hitter Norichika Aoki drove in the go-ahead run with a safety squeeze in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 6-5 on Monday night.

Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally with a leadoff double. He moved up on Martin Maldonado’s single to right and scored when Aoki greeted Randy Choate with a bunt single that gave Milwaukee a 6-5 lead.

John Axford then pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 14th save.

Justin Ruggiano had a career-high four RBIs for Miami, including a two-run homer in the third inning.
