MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Juan Francisco and Carlos Gomez each hit home runs and Kyle Lohse blanked Miami for six innings as the Milwaukee Brewers started the second half of the season with a 2-0 victory over the Marlins on Friday night.

Lohse (6-7) has owned the Marlins over his career. He came in 5-2 in nine starts, including a 3-0 record with the St. Louis Cardinals last season. He was in command all the way this time, too.

He struck out five, allowed five hits but no walks. It was his fourth win in his last five decisions.

Francisco hit an opposite-field home run in the fourth, driving a 3-2 pitch from Jacob Turner (3-2) into the left-field seats.

Gomez, fresh off his first All-Star appearance, curled a two-out, 0-2 pitch around the left-field foul pole in the fifth inning.

GAME 2 OF THE SERIES IS SET FOR SATURDAY.   CATCH BREWERS PREGAME  AT 5:35PM, WITH FIRST PITCH AT 6:10PM ON NEWSTALK 1310 WIBA AM
