Marlins’ rally caps 13-5 rout

MIAMI (AP) - Once the Florida Marlins started hitting again, everyone in their dugout seemed relieved.

Cody Ross hit a three-run home run to spark Florida's biggest inning of the season, Cameron Maybin hit an inside-the-park homer to help turn the game into a rout and the Marlins erased an early four-run deficit Monday to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 13-5.

Chris Coghlan led off what became a seven-run sixth with a single, then added a two-run triple 20 minutes later for the Marlins, who scored four more in the seventh - the last two coming on Maybin's line drive to center that he beat without even sliding at the plate, crossing with both arms raised.

"Funny how this game works," Ross said. "For the first five innings or whatever it was, it looked like the same old team that's been playing the last few days. Then all of a sudden, we score seven. That's what makes our game so beautiful. You can be down and out, and the next thing you know, you feel like you're on top of the world and nobody can get you out. It's mindboggling."

Entering the sixth inning, the Marlins were in a 15-for-109 skid. They went 12-for-20 the rest of the way.

Ross finished with four RBI, the second time he's done that this season. Jorge Cantu drove in three runs, while Ronny Paulino and Coghlan each finished with three hits for Florida, which matched a season-high with 13 runs.

Marlins starter Nate Robertson gave up eight hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings. Jorge Sosa (1-0) got the win in relief, retiring the last two batters of the sixth.
