Hart hits 30th HR in Brewers’ 8-3 win over Marlins

MILWAUKEE — Corey Hart hit one of three Milwaukee homers and Yovani Gallardo added another win to his strong September, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to an 8-3 victory over the Florida Marlins on Thursday night.

Hart reached 30 home runs for the first time in his career with a first-inning shot. Rickie Weeks and Prince Fielder hit consecutive homers in the seventh on the first three pitches of reliever Sandy Rosario’s major league debut.

Gallardo (14-7) gave up three runs in 6 2-3 innings, improving to 3-0 with a 1.95 ERA and 25 strikeouts in four September starts.

Florida rookie Logan Morrison extended his streak of reaching base safely to 42 straight games, tying the best mark in the majors this season as his cancer-stricken father watched from the stands.
