SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Ricky Nolasco remained unbeaten, Giancarlo Stanton drew a bases-loaded walk to force in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning and the Miami Marlins beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 Sunday for their season-best sixth straight victory. Miami lost eight of nine before beginning its winning streak. The Marlins have swept consecutive three-game series on the road for the second time in team history. Stanton's walk keyed a four-run eighth. The slugger saw eight pitches from Andrew Cashner and all of them registered at least 101 mph. Nolasco (4-0) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings to tie Dontrelle Willis for the club record with his 68th career win. With the score tied at 2, Jose Reyes led off the eighth against Cashner (2-2) with a single and Emilio Bonifacio reached on a bunt single. With one out, Logan Morrison was walked intentionally. Cashner then struck out Omar Infante, with the final two pitches hitting at least 101 mph on the radar gun. Stanton, who had homered in two straight games and four of his last five, then ran the count full against Cashner before the right-hander missed high on a 101 mph fastball. Seven of the eight pitches to Stanton were 101 mph. The other was 102. With Gaby Sanchez batting, the Marlins scored another run when catcher John Baker was charged with a passed ball. Sanchez put Miami ahead 5-2 with an RBI single to chase Cashner before Stanton scored on another passed ball. Edward Mujica pitched the ninth for his second save. It was the first time the Marlins have had a save opportunity since closer Heath Bell was demoted on Friday. San Diego pitcher Joe Wieland helped himself when he hit a two-run double in the fifth to put the Padres ahead 2-0. Miami came right back after Nolasco walked leading off the sixth. He went to second on Reyes' single, advanced on a flyout and scored on Hanley Ramirez's fielder's choice. Logan Morrison tied the score at 2 with a triple to center, knocking Wieland out of the game. Wieland allowed two runs on five hits over 5 2-3 innings and avoided becoming the first Padres pitcher to lose his first five career starts. NOTES: Miami began its nine-game road trip with a sweep at San Francisco. . The only other time the Marlins swept consecutive three-game series on the road came April 14-19, 2009, when the club won six straight at Atlanta and Washington. . All of Bonifacio's 27 hits have been singles, including 11 infield singles. That ties Derek Jeter for the major league lead. . After missing two starts with a sore right knee, Morrison was back in the starting lineup. . Miami RHP Carlos Zambrano (0-2, 2.53 ERA) will start Monday night to open a three-game series at Houston against LHP Wandy Rodriguez (3-2, 1.64). . Colorado LHP Drew Pomeranz (0-1, 4.05) will face San Diego's Edinson Volquez (0-2, 2.92) in the opener of a three-game series.
