Holaday’s pinch-single in 11th lifts Marlins over Mets 4-3
MIAMI (AP) — For a last-place team down to its last hitter on the bench, this was a win worth celebrating.
Pinch-hitter Bryan Holaday hit an RBI single in the 11th inning and the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 4-3 Saturday night for just their second victory in 11 games.
"This is something that we needed," Holaday said. "It's tough when you're not winning games so a win like this can spark us and makes it a lot better in the locker room. Everybody is able to celebrate a win."
MIAMI (AP) — With back-to-back bunts, a disputed ruling and a blooper that eluded a two-man outfield, the Miami Marlins finally beat the Washington Nationals.
J.T. Realmuto capped a wild 10th inning with a none-out, bases-loaded single Saturday night, and Miami snapped a streak of eight consecutive home losses to Washington, winning 2-1.
The Marlins beat the Nationals for only the second time in the past 18 meetings.

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have recalled outfielder Magneuris Sierra from Double-A Springfield.
The 21-year-old Sierra made his major league debut last month and hit .367 (11 for 30) in seven games before he was sent down when infielder Jhonny Peralta was activated from the disabled list. The speedy Sierra got the start in left field for Friday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
MIAMI (AP) — Once St. Louis Cardinals rookie outfielder Magneuris Sierra reached the major leagues, he needed little time to make a big splash.
MIAMI (AP) — Still out of the starting lineup, Dexter Fowler helped the St. Louis Cardinals to a big finish.
Fowler singled home the tiebreaking run as a pinch hitter with one out in the ninth inning, and the Cardinals rallied from a late four-run deficit for their fifth consecutive victory by beating the Miami Marlins 6-5 Tuesday.
ATLANTA (AP) — After seeing the Braves leave runners in scoring position in the first three extra innings, Tommy Pham was sure the Cardinals would take advantage when their opportunity arrived.
He was the one who came through.
Pham hit two homers, including a two-run drive in the 14th inning, and St. Louis recovered after blowing a four-run lead to beat Atlanta 6-4 on Sunday and complete a three-game sweep.
