Padres Vs. Marlins: Miami Finishes Series With Extra-Inning Win

Although the trade rumors continued to swirl around numerous Miami Marlins players, the team was able to put the distractions aside and pull out a 5-4 win in 10 innings over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Josh Johnson took to the hill where he was wild, yet effective, allowing one earned run on two hits and striking out four, but walking six.

The Padres led 2-0 until the bottom of the sixth where the Marlins broke out for a four-run rally that was capped by a Justin Ruggiano two-run triple that gave Miami the lead.

Edward Mujica gave the lead back to the Padres in the top of the eighth when Edward Mujica allowed a two-run home run to Yonder Alonzo. The teams remained tied until the bottom of the 10th when Ruggiano came through big again, singling home Jose Reyes to win the game.
