Marlins rally falls short, lose to Rangers 5-4

MIAMI (AP) -- Nick Martinez allowed two runs over six innings in his homecoming, Alex Rios drove in two runs and the Texas Rangers roughed up Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi early on the way to a 5-4 win over the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon.

Leonys Martin had three hits for Texas, which grabbed a 5-0 lead after two innings.

Martinez (3-9) allowed six hits and threw 62 of his 96 pitches for strikes. He was born in nearby Hialeah and pitched at Belen Jesuit Prep, about 12 miles from Marlins Park.

Miami rallied in the ninth with solo homers by Marcell Ozuna and pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia, both off Neftali Feliz. And with the tying run on first, Feliz closed out his fifth save in six chances by striking out Donovan Solano to end the game.

Eovaldi (6-8) gave up nine hits and five runs, four earned, in five innings.

MIAMI-HEAPS

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Quarterback Jake Heaps was back at practice with Miami on Wednesday, after missing the Hurricanes' second scrimmage of training camp with an elbow problem.

Heaps says he was advised by team doctors and others to sit out the scrimmage, which was held Monday. The Hurricanes were off Tuesday.

Heaps transferred to Miami earlier this year after stints at BYU and Kansas and is competing with freshman Brad Kaaya for the starting job, which became a wide-open race this spring when presumed starter Ryan Williams tore a knee ligament.

The Hurricanes have not said when they will decide on starters for their Sept. 1 season- and Atlantic Coast Conference-opener at Louisville.

T25-FLORIDA STATE-EDWARDS

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State's Mario Edwards Jr. has everything a coach wants in a defensive lineman -- the combination of power and agility. Last year he was a third-team All-ACC selection after arriving in Tallahassee as the No. 1 recruit in the nation in 2012.

Now he needs to dominate on every down.

Edwards used the offseason to firm-up his 300 pounds. He's bench pressing 450 pounds, squatting 600 pounds and routinely runs down players 100 pounds lighter.

Bucky Brooks, NFL Media analyst and former NFL scout, says Edwards needs to consistently dominate his opponent. The Seminole lineman says that's the goal -- along with double-digit sacks.

The defense needs Edwards to replace the production of Timmy Jernigan, a second-round 2014 NFL draft pick, if it is going remain a championship-caliber unit.
