Marlins top Rox with eighth-inning rally
Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Casey McGehee's two-run single capped a four- run rally in the bottom of the eighth, as Miami emerged with an 8-5 victory over Colorado in the finale of a four-game, season-opening series.
McGehee drove in three, Giancarlo Stanton added two hits, two runs scored and an RBI, with Adeiny Hechavarria contributing three hits and a run knocked in for the Marlins, who won three of four in the set.
A.J. Ramos (1-0) tossed a scoreless top of the eighth for the win and Steve Cishek followed suit in the ninth to earn his second save.
Michael Cuddyer hit a two-run homer and finished with three RBI for the Rockies, who failed to gain momentum from Wednesday's positive decision. Nolan Arenado posted two hits and knocked in two, while Corey Dickerson and Troy Tulowitzki each scored twice in the setback.
Matt Belisle (0-1) was tagged in defeat for all four runs on as many hits in the deciding frame.
