June 2, 2013 at 4:45 PM

MIAMI, June 2 (UPI) -- Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-5 with four RBI and Greg Dobbs smashed a three-run homer Sunday, helping Miami sweep out the New York Mets 11-6.

The Marlins trailed 6-4 in the sixth inning but then reeled off the game's next seven runs to grab control.

Ozuna provided a two-run triple in the first inning and his two-run double in the sixth pulled Miami into a 6-6 tie.

Dobbs' clout in the eighth wrapped up the scoring for the Marlins, who banged out 16 hits in completing a three-game series sweep of New York.

Chris Coghlan and Ed Lucas each contributed four hits and a pair of RBI in the victory.

Wade LeBlanc (1-5) earned the decision with 1 2/3 scoreless frames in relief of starter Kevin Slowey, who had coughed up six runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Mets reliever Scott Rice (3-4) was tagged with the loss after surrendering four walks and three runs in a 2/3-inning stint.

Omar Quintanilla, Lucas Duda and Ike Davis each homered for New York.
