MLB: Florida 8, Philadelphia 4

Sept. 4, 2011 at 1:01 AM   |   Comments

MIAMI, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Gaby Sanchez, Mike Cameron and Greg Dobbs all homered in the eighth inning Saturday, rallying the Florida Marlins past Philadelphia 8-4.

Trailing 4-3 entering the eighth, the Marlins launched a long ball assault that carried them to a victory in the middle contest of a three-game set against the Phillies.

Omar Infante and Logan Morrison each drew walks from Anthony Bastardo (6-1) to start the frame. David Herndon relieved and one out later Sanchez blasted a three-run homer to put Florida ahead.

The next batter, Cameron, also went deep and Dobbs completed the homer parade with another solo shot one out later.

Edward Mujica (9-5) tossed a scoreless eighth to record the win.

Wilson Valdez contributed a two-run triple for the National League East-leading Phillies.
