The Miami Marlins won their sixth straight game on Sunday and completed a second straight sweep with a 6-3 victory over the San Diego Padres.   The win moved the fish back to .500 as they are now 14-14 on the year.    Also of note in this game, Ricky Nolasco tied the franchise record for wins with his 68th.  The record is also held by Dontrelle Willis.

Nolasco moved to 4-0 on the season with another spectacular effort throwing seven innings of two run ball.   Until the sixth inning, it appeared Nolasco could take a tough loss but the Marlins’ offense came alive and not only tied the game there — but took the lead later.    Nolasco’s E.R.A is now 2.72 as he remains one of the best number three starters in all of baseball.   Randy Choate followed and did not fare well, allowing both men he faced to reach base.   Ryan Webb was able to work out of the jam allowing only one of Choate’s runners to score.    In the ninth, Edward Mujica came in for the save in the first chance since Heath Bell was removed from the closer role.   Mujica struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn his second save of the season.

The Marlins put together nine hits in the game with three of them going for extra bases.  Omar Infante hit his ninth double of the season while Hanley Ramirez picked up his fifth two bagger.   Logan Morrison also tripled, his first of the year.     Stolen bases were another theme in the game as the Marlins swiped three as a team.  Jose Reyes, Emilio Bonifacio and Gaby Sanchez each had one.     During the four run eighth inning, two runs came home on passed balls charged to former Marlin, John Baker.

On Monday, the Marlins will head to Houston as they look to extend their win streak to seven games.   The sheduled starters are Carlos Zambrano and Wandy Rodriguez.
