MIAMI, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Nick Green and John Buck hit back-to-back RBI doubles during a four-run fifth inning Saturday that carried Miami to a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Gorkys Hernandez and Justin Ruggiano also knocked in a run each during the uprising, which erased a 2-0 deficit.

Carlos Lee added a two-run double in the eighth to ice Miami's victory.
