Marlins stun Cards with 9th-inning rally

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Jeff Baker struck the go-ahead, pinch-hit, RBI single in the top of the ninth inning, giving Miami a 6-5 victory over St. Louis in the middle test of a three-game series.

Casey McGehee added a game-tying hit in the frame, while Christian Yelich launched a three-run shot in the sixth for the Marlins, who had dropped their previous two contests.

Mike Dunn (6-4) tossed a scoreless eighth, while Steve Cishek locked it down in the bottom of the ninth to earn his 19th save.

Allen Craig hit a two-run homer and Jhonny Peralta added a solo shot, while Matt Holliday drove in a run and scored twice for the Cardinals, whose three- game win streak came to an end.

Trevor Rosenthal (0-4) took the loss and the blown save, charged with two runs on two hits while retiring one batter.
