Marlins End Eight Game Losing Streak, Beat D-Backs 6-4
MIAMI (AP) – Logan Morrison and Mike Stanton each hit a two-run homer and the Florida Marlins snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 6-4 victory over Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.
John Buck also homered and drove two runs for the Marlins, who had seven of their 13 hits go for extra bases. Emilio Bonifacio had two doubles.
