Jose Fernandez pitches Miami past Brewers 4-1
MIAMI (AP) -- Jose Fernandez pitched well enough to overcome a teammate's home run that was negated due to a baserunning blunder, and the Miami Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 Monday night.
Fernandez (4-2) allowed four hits and pitched around four walks in seven shutout innings, his longest start this season. He improved to 20-1 at Marlins Park.
With the game scoreless in the second inning, a home run by J.T. Realmuto was negated when he passed teammate Marcell Ozuna after rounding first base, costing Miami a run.
Realmuto's hit struck the home run sculpture in center field. Ozuna, who was on first base, misjudged the fly and retreated to first, and Realmuto trotted past him.
