MIAMI, June 30 (UPI) -- Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs Friday night as Florida beat the Red Sox, 5-2, snapping Boston's 12-game winning streak.

Jeremy Hermida hit an RBI single, Mike Jacobs stroked an RBI double, and Hanley Ramirez and Dan Uggla both scored twice for the Marlins (35-41), who won for the fourth time in their last five games.

In seven innings, winning pitcher Dontrelle Willis (5-7) yielded two runs and seven hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. Joe Borowski got his 15th save.

Manny Ramirez had three hits and drove in both runs for the Red Sox (48-29), who had tied the franchise record for third-longest winning streak before Friday's loss.

In his Boston debut, recently acquired right-hander Jason Johnson (3-9) continued his downward spiral, picking up his fifth straight loss as he gave up five runs and six hits in four innings.
