MIAMI - Logan Morrison and Mike Stanton each hit a two-run homer and the Florida Marlins snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 6-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday night.

John Buck also homered and drove in two runs for the Marlins, who had seven of their 13 hits go for extra bases. Emilio Bonifacio had two doubles.

Florida's 13 hits were its highest total since it had a season-high 14 against the Dodgers on May 28.

Miguel Montero and Xavier Nady hit back-to-back home runs for the Diamondbacks, who have lost four of five.

Morrison connected against Joe Saunders in the first inning, hitting a drive to right on a 2-2 pitch for his eighth homer of the season.

Stanton's 15th homer in the sixth inning made it 4-0 and Buck hit Saunders' next pitch over the wall in right. It was the second time this season the Marlins have hit back-to-back homers.

Anibal Sanchez (6-1) allowed three runs and five hits in 62/3 innings for the Marlins. The righthander is 5-0 with a 2.31 ERA in his last seven starts.

Arizona chased Sanchez during its four-run seventh inning. Stephen Drew singled in Justin Upton before Montero went deep. Mike Dunn then came in and allowed a homer to pinch-hitter Nady, cutting it to 5-4.

Buck added an RBI single in the bottom half to get the Marlins an insurance run, and Steve Cishek worked the ninth for his first career save.

Saunders (3-6) gave up five runs and 10 hits in six innings.

Brewers 8, Cardinals 0

MILWAUKEE - Ryan Braun and Corey Hart homered as Milwaukee kept rolling at home to beat St. Louis and spoil Tony La Russa's 5,000th game as manager in the majors. The game was also marked by a small fire in the ballpark.

Righthander Chris Narveson (3-4), who began his career as a Cardinals draft pick, went eight innings to stymie his former team.

Braun's two-run homer made it 4-0 in the fifth, and Hart hit a solo shot to start the sixth just as smoke started to billow in right field from a concession stand's malfunctioning popcorn machine.

There was little La Russa could have liked from this game after St. Louis managed just six hits.

Rockies 6, Dodgers 5

DENVER - Colorado's Jhoulys Chacin pitched eight shutout innings while his teammates pounded Chad Billingsley for 13 hits in their win over Los Angeles.

Chacin (7-4) stifled a Dodgers lineup missing slugger Matt Kemp (hamstring), and the Rockies scored five times in the fifth inning on six straight singles. The decisive rally was sparked by two uncharacteristic errors by the Dodgers, the best-fielding team in the major leagues.

Chacin allowed three harmless singles, struck out nine, and walked three, handing over a 6-0 lead to a bullpen that nearly frittered it away.
