Marlins Vs. Dodgers Final Score: Miami Avoids Series Sweep With 6-2 Win

Jose Reyes and Carlos Lee hit back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning against the Dodgers as the Miami Marlins won 6-2 on Sunday to avoid the series sweep in Los Angeles. Miami hit home runs in consecutive innings when Giancarlo Stanton hit a solo home run in the fourth inning followed by a two-run shot by Rob Brantly in the fifth.

Los Angeles scored a run in the first inning on an Adrian Gonzalez RBI single, but didn't score again until the seventh when Andre Ethier hit an RBI single of his own. Miami's insurance run came in the eighth inning on fielding error by none other than Hanley Ramirez. Then of course there were the Reyes and Lee homers.
