Sanchez leads Marlins past Mets 8-5
Saturday, July 23, 2011
MIAMI (AP) -- Gaby Sanchez hit a pair of two-run homers and the Florida Marlins broke a four-game losing streak by rallying past the New York Mets 8-5 Saturday night.
Sanchez hit his 15th homer in the sixth inning to put the Marlins ahead for the first time since their homestand began Tuesday. He added another homer in the seventh and has three in the past two games.
The Marlins trailed 2-0 when Emilio Bonifacio started their comeback with an infield single in the sixth. That extended his career-best hitting streak to 22 games, the longest active streak in the majors.
Bonifacio added a second infield hit, scored twice, robbed Angel Pagan of a hit with a nifty play at third base and tied a career high with his 21st stolen base.
Logan Morrison hit his 14th homer for Florida.
