    Giancarlo Stanton had two hits on Tuesday including the game-winner

    The Miami Marlins beat the Texas Rangers on Tuesday 4-3 in ten innings and now have a winning record on the season.

    Giancarlo Stanton rifled a single to right-field to bring home Jeff Baker from second base and give Miami its 63rd win of the year. It was also the third straight victory for the Marlins. Miami also has 11 walk-off wins and 32 one-run wins this season.

    Jarred Cosart continued his good run as a Marlin with another fine start. It was in fact a quality start that lasted six innings. The right-hander hallowed a run on six hits while walking two and striking out a pair.

    Cosart would end up with a no-decision after the bullpen blew the lead in the seventh inning. A.J. Ramos started the frame and was very inefficient when he walked two, gave up two hits and also ended up having two runs charged to him.

    The second run came home on a bases loaded walk by Mike Dunn. The left-hander entered to work out of the jam set up by Ramos and ended up leaving with the game locked at three.

    Steve Cishek got himself intro trouble in the ninth and wasn't helped when Donovan Solano made an error on what could have been an inning-ending double play. The Marlins' closer worked out of it though and kept the game tied.

    Sam Dyson had one of his best appearances as a Major Leaguer in the tenth when he struck out the side. Dyson would end up with the win.

    Marcell Ozuna hit his 17th home run of the season, a solo blast in the fourth inning. Ozuna also singled and scored two runs in the game. The center-fielder is up to 63 runs batted in on the year as well.

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia (15), and Garrett Jones (24) each doubled. Saltalamacchia also brought home his 37th run of the year as part of a two-hit day.

    Defense was a story in this game as the two teams combined for six errors.

    The Marlins and Rangers will wrap up their quick two-game series on Wednesday afternoon. Miami has Nathan Eovaldi scheduled to make the start.
