The Miami Marlins have a rare win streak going after a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday.  The win was the second in a row for Miami to improve the team to 13-32 on the season.   A string of exceptional pitching continued following on the heels of two of the better starts since this season by Marlins’ pitchers. Alex Sanabia allowed one run on seven hits in six and a third innings to earn his third win of the year.  Sanabia struck out three and walked one in a tremendous effort.   With the tying run at third and one out, the game was handed over to the bullpen in the seventh and Ryan Webb did what he does best this year.  He escaped the inning to keep Sanabia in line for the win and earned his first hold of the year.   A.J. Ramos worked a scoreless eighth to pick up his fourth hold before Chad Qualls entered in the ninth.   Qualls was warming with the score at 2-1 and would’ve been in line for a save but after the three run eighth his perfect inning went without credit for a save. Chris Coghlan had a big day with his first triple of the season to go along with a single and a gem of a play in left field.   Justin Ruggiano also had a great day bringing home two runs and earning his seventh double of the season.   Two hits days were popular for Miami with Marcell Ozuna and Placido Polanco also joining in.    Miami was 4-12 with runners in scoring position in what was one of their better games in such situations. Miami will look to make it three wins in a row on Tuesday with Jose Fernandez scheduled to start.
