NEW YORK (AP) -- Alex Sanabia won for the first time in more than two years and the Miami Marlins gave Mike Redmond his first victory as a major league manager, beating the New York Mets 7-5 Friday night.
The Marlins began the day at 0-3 and were the only team in the majors without a win.
Sanabia (1-0) had been absent from the majors since late in the 2011 season. He pitched six shutout innings, working around six hits, three walks and a hit batter.
Miami took advantage of shortstop Ruben Tejada's error to score five runs in the seventh inning for a 6-0 lead. The Mets rallied and brought the tying run to the plate a couple of times, but couldn't catch the Marlins.
Greg Dobbs' homer off Jeremy Hefner (0-1) leading off the second gave the Marlins their first lead of 2013 -- and only their second run overall. Miami went 19 consecutive innings to start the year without scoring before Justin Ruggiano homered at Washington on Thursday.
