April 15, 2012 at 5:42 PM

MIAMI, April 15 (UPI) -- Hanley Ramirez drove in the game-winning run with an 11th-inning hit Sunday in the Miami Marlins' 5-4 victory over Houston.

John Buck singled to lead off the 11th, and pinch-runner Brett Hayes went to second on Chris Coghlan's sacrifice. After Jose Reyes was intentionally walked, both runners moved up on a wild pitch by David Carpenter (0-1).

Emilio Bonifacio was also walked to load the bases and Ramirez delivered a deep fly over the pulled-in outfield as the Marlins bounced back to take the rubber match of their three-game series.

Chad Gaudin (1-0) earned the victory after working out of jam in the top of the 11th.

Ramirez went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer -- the first for the Marlins in their new stadium.

Jose Altuve drove in a pair of runs for the Astros.
