MIAMI, May 15 (UPI) -- Jorge Cantu stroked a go-ahead RBI double and collected three hits Saturday to pace the Florida Marlins' 7-5 win over the New York Mets.

Cantu's double ignited a three-run fifth that saw the Marlins break a 3-3 tie and grab the momentum they needed to win their third straight game and fifth in six tries.

Cameron Maybin drove in three runs and Hanley Ramirez finished 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Florida's victory.

Starter Nate Robertson (4-3) pitched well enough for the win, allowing two earned runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. Leo Nunez got the save, his eighth, despite letting a run score in the ninth.

John Maine (1-3) was ineffective for the Mets, surrendering six runs on seven hits with five walks. He was particularly wild in the first inning, walking four batters.

The Mets got a homer from David Wright and Luis Castillo plated a pair of runs in the loss.
