Miami manager Mike Redmond got immediate results from his decision to put Justin Ruggiano in the leadoff spot. Ruggiano started the game with a home run in his third career start in the leadoff spot and added a two-run shot in the ninth that broke it open for the Marlins.
For much of the season, Matt Cain didn’t look like the three-time All-Star that had won 55 games over the last four years. Now he seems to be returning to form.

Top pitching prospect Jose Fernandez was added to the Miami Marlins’ roster Sunday, and he’s scheduled make his major league debut next Sunday against the Mets in New York.
