MIAMI (AP) -- Giancarlo Stanton hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning and the Miami Marlins beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 Tuesday night for their third straight win.

Miami (63-62) surpassed last year's total of 62. The Marlins moved over .500 for the first time since June 20.

Jeff Baker reached with one out in the 10th on first baseman Mike Carp's error. Donovan Solano's infield single with two outs moved Baker to second.

Neftali Feliz relieved Neal Cotts (2-7) to face Stanton, who singled to right field.

Sam Dyson (2-0) struck out the side in the 10th.


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Victor Martinez drew a tiebreaking bases-loaded walk during a three-run 11th inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-6 on Tuesday night.

Ian Kinsler opened the 11th with a triple off Grant Balfour (1-5), a flare to right that got past a diving Kevin Kiermaier. Torii Hunter walked and Miguel Cabrera was intentionally walked before Martinez got his free pass.

Hunter scored on Jeff Beliveau's wild pitch and Bryan Holaday added a sacrifice fly that gave Detroit an 8-5 lead.

Jim Johnson (5-2) worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the 10th. Joe Nathan gave up Evan Longoria's RBI single in the 11th before getting his 26th save.

The Tigers, the AL second wild-card leader, won for the fifth time in 13 games.


DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- There seems to be a change in the demeanor of Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin this season.

Granted, his team is still undefeated, a given since the start of the regular season is about two weeks away. But there's a different air at times around Philbin and the Dolphins so far this summer, quite possibly a byproduct of the hazing scandal that overshadowed the team's entire 2013 campaign now being a thing of the past.

He's simply enjoying things more now, it would seem, as opposed to at most points in his first two seasons.

Philbin says it's easy to have more fun when you enjoy the people around you and what the group is collectively doing. Players are taking notice as well.
