Miami Natives Lift Padres Over Marlins, 7-2
MIAMI (AP) — Miami natives Yasmani Grandal and Yonder Alonso powered the San Diego Padres to a 7-2 victory over the host Marlins on Friday night.
Grandal hit a bases-clearing triple, and Alonso drove in two runs to back the pitching of Kip Wells (2-3).
Carlos Zambrano (5-9) allowed five runs — four earned — and three hits in five innings as the slumping Marlins lost for the eighth time in nine games.
Jose Reyes hit an RBI triple, and Carlos Lee drove him in with a hit to stake the Marlins to a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning, but they couldn’t hold it.
San Diego scored five runs in the sixth to turn the game around.
