    Redman allowed just two hits after second inning

    MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mark Redman dominated the Brewers for the third time this season as the Florida Marlins beat Milwaukee 7-1 on Saturday night.

    Redman (10-5) allowed one run on six hits in eight innings, including just two harmless singles after the second inning. He walked one and struck out seven in sending the Brewers to their fourth straight loss.

    On April 24 at Miami, Redman allowed two earned runs in nine innings in a 4-2 victory over Milwaukee, and surrendered one unearned run in eight innings of a 12-4 win at Miller Park on June 10.

    In his second major league start, David Manning (0-2) surrendered six earned runs on seven hits in 2 2-3 innings. He nearly didn't make it out of the first, when he allowed four earned runs on four hits and needed 36 pitches to retire the side.

    Juan Pierre led off the game with a walk, stole his major league-leading 55th base, advanced to third on second baseman Eric Young's second throwing error in two nights and scored on Mike Redmond's sacrifice fly.

    Miguel Cabrera hit an RBI double and Brian Banks followed with a two-run single for a 4-0 lead.

    The Brewers, who grounded into inning-ending double plays three times in the last four innings Friday night, grounded into double plays to end the first and second innings Saturday night.

    For the third straight time, slugger Richie Sexson ended an inning by bouncing into a double play, and Royce Clayton did the honors in the second inning following Eddie Perez's RBI single.

    Alex Gonzalez chased Manning with a two-run single in the third, and Mike Lowell's third hit, an RBI double in the fourth off Dave Burba, made it 7-1.

    Manning, called up last week to fill in for injured starter Glendon Rusch, also had a rough outing in his major league debut in Montreal, where he surrendered six earned runs on four hits and five walks in four innings.

    With an ERA of 16.19, Manning's days in the rotation, if not the majors, could be over before his 31st birthday on Thursday.

    Game notes

    With Redman on the mound, Milwaukee manager Ned Yost took the opportunity to give Geoff Jenkins and Scott Podsednik a rest, replacing them with Mark Smith and Brady Clark, respectively. ... Sexson, who is 6-foot-8, has become an odd site during batting practice by fielding groundballs at shortstop. Yost said Sexson wasn't goofing around. "That's for a purpose there. That's to get his arm stretched out," he said.
