Recap


Marlins 5, Padres 4 (10): Justin Ruggiano's RBI single in the 10th inning - his second of the game - lifted host Miami to a walk-off win in the rubber game of the series.

Ruggiano lined a single into left field off Brad Brach (0-2) to plate Jose Reyes, who led off the inning with a double.

Ryan Webb (4-2) escaped a bases-loaded threat in the top of the 10th as the Marlins won for only the third time in 11 games.

Reyes went 2-for-5 to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, and Donnie Murphy had a two-run triple to cap a four-run sixth inning for Miami.

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso - a University of Miami product - erased a two-run deficit in the eighth inning with a massive two-run homer off Edward Mujica, giving him five hits and five RBIs in the series.

Marlins right-hander Josh Johnson, pitching with a number of scouts in attendance, was shaky in his five-inning stint, allowing two runs on two hits and tying a career high with six walks.

Padres lefty Clayton Richard gave up two runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings. He also collected his career-best sixth RBI with a sacrifice fly in the fourth.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Reyes' 16-game hitting streak is the longest active streak in the majors. ... Richard's sac fly was the 16th RBI by a San Diego pitcher this year... Murphy, who was called up from Triple-A New Orleans following the trade of Hanley Ramirez, collected his first RBIs since April 30. ... The Padres signed RHP Huston Street to a two-year, $14 million contract extension that includes a team option for a third year. The closer entered Sunday's game with 17 saves and a 0.91 ERA in 31 appearances. ... Miami placed LF Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list due to inflammation in his right knee. Morrison said he may require surgery.
