Recap


Gaby Sanchez hit a pair of two-run homers and Logan Morrison also went deep to power the host Florida Marlins to an 8-5 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday night.

Sanchez' first homer and Morrison's solo blast came in the four-run sixth inning, when the Marlins erased a 2-0 deficit. Sanchez' second homer came in the three-run seventh as the Marlins snapped a four-game losing streak.

Florida's Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-4 to extend his career-best hitting streak to 22 games, the longest active streak in the majors and the longest by a Marlins player since Jorge Cantu hit in 21 straight from Sept. 29, 2009 to April 24, 2010.

New York's Lucas Duda and Jose Reyes hit back-to-back homers off Leo Nunez to start the ninth, but Nunez retired the next three batters.

Reyes went 3-for-5 to raise his major league-leading batting average to .352.

Justin Turner had three hits and David Wright drove in two runs for the Mets. Wright has four RBIs in two games since returning from more than two months on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his lower back.
