MIAMI (AP) – John Buck and pinch hitter Logan Morrison connected for consecutive home runs in the seventh inning, rallying the Miami Marlins past St. Louis 5-3 Wednesday night and ending their eight-game losing streak against the Cardinals.

The Cardinals had won five in a row overall. Miami won for just the second time in 10 games.

Tony Cruz’s first career homer in the top of the seventh put the Cardinals ahead 3-2.

Buck tied it with one out when he homered off Fernando Salas. Morrison then sent a drive off Sam Freeman (0-1) that hit the top of the right-field fence, bounced off a nearby railing and dropped back into play.

After being stopped at second base while the umpires reviewed the play, Morrison was allowed to finish his home-run trot.
