MLB: Florida 11, Baltimore 3
Homers by Cody Ross, Dan Uggla and Hanley Ramirez accounted for eight runs Thursday and sent the Florida Marlins romping past Baltimore 11-3.
The Marlins won their fifth game in a row and equaled their largest run output of the season. They scored 11 times at Toronto June 14.
Ross opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the second and Uggla had a two-run blast as part of a three-run third. Ramirez contributed a grand slam during a five-run eighth.
The Marlins finished with 17 hits.
Sean West (3-2) threw six shutout innings, allowing five hits. All of Baltimore's runs came in the ninth off Chris Leroux.
Rich Hill (3-2) was roughed up for six runs on eight hits over 4 1/3.
