SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)
Hanley Ramirez hit a grand slam and Dan Uggla singled home the winning run in the ninth inning for his third RBI, giving Florida a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night hours after the Marlins announced Edwin Rodriguez will remain their manager for the rest of the season.
New York scored twice in the ninth off closer Leo Nunez (3-1), tying it at 6 on a single by pinch-hitter Josh Thole - his second hit this season. It was Nunez's fourth blown save in 20 chances
Pedro Feliciano (2-3) retired his first two batters in the bottom of the ninth, but Jorge Cantu doubled to right-center and Uggla hit a grounder up the middle. Cantu slid home safely, beating a strong throw by center fielder Jesus Feliciano.
