MIAMI - Logan Morrison hit a game-tying home run in the fourth inning and doubled in Florida's two-run eighth to help the Marlins beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-3, on Friday night.

Morrison scored Florida's final run from third on a sacrifice fly to the first baseman.

The Marlins fell behind, 2-0, but rallied for their 14th come-from-behind win, which tied them with Colorado for the most in the majors.

Mike Stanton hit his 10th homer for Florida. Chris Coghlan, who had been in a 3-for-33 slump, had two hits and scored a run.

Leo Nunez needed only seven pitches in a perfect ninth for his 16th save, the most in the major leagues. He has yet to blow a save.

The first game of the Citrus Series between the state's two attendance-challenged teams drew a paid crowd of 18,111. The Marlins improved to 128-107 (.545) in interleague play, best in the NL.

With the score 3-all, the Rays wasted a leadoff double in the eighth.

Not the Marlins. Hanley Ramirez led off the bottom of the eighth with a single against Joel Peralta (1-3). Ramirez took third on Morrison's double and scored on a sacrifice fly by Gaby Sanchez.

With the infield in, Stanton hit a pop-up that sent first baseman Casey Kotchman retreating to the grass to make the catch with his back to the plate, and an alert Morrison tagged up and scored.

PITTSBURGH - Neil Walker homered and drove in a career-high five runs to lead Pittsburgh past Detroit.

Walker's two-run double in the sixth off reliever Brayan Villarreal helped break open a tight game. Walker later added a three-run homer in the ninth.

Jeff Karstens (3-2) put together his best performance of the year. He retired the first 14 he faced and gave up just one run on three hits in six innings, striking out four without issuing a walk.

Brad Penny (5-5) took the loss.
