Dan Uggla hit a solo shot off the Padre’s Kevin Correia to become the all-time home run leader in Florida Marlins history. The home run, 144th in Uggla’s career (all as a Marlin), passes Mike Lowell who set the previous mark in 2005.

Complete game 1-hitter for Anibal Sanchez as the #Marlins beat the #Giants 5-0.
Is Evan Reed, soon to be acquired by #Marlins in Cantu trade, ready to pitch in the majors?
#Marlins Cantu still in the game (just got a hit in the 8th).
With Cantu soon heading to the #Rangers and Cogz on the DL, does Wes become the everyday 3B or does he platoon with Bonifacio? #Marlins
Does anyone in baseball hit the ball as hard as Mike Stanton? #Marlins
The Marlins have traded Jorge Cantu to the Texas Rangers for AA right-handed pitchers Evan Reed and Omar Poveda. The trade was approved by MLB just minutes before the Marlins wrapped up a 5-0 win against the San Francisco Giants. The Marlins also sent cash to Texas to offset some or all of the $2MM remaining on Cantu‘s salary for this season.
While Poveda is on the 60-day DL following Tommy John Surgery, Reed has pitched 39 innings in AA and has 34 strikeouts with 13 walks. Not clear if he is ready to move up to the Majors where the Marlins desperately need bullpen relief.
#Marlins lose. Nice comeback but no margin for error anymore.
Correction: #Marlins where down 9-2. A win would tie this for largest comeback in club history.
Uggla on fire! Ties the game at 9 after #Marlins were down 7-2.
Murphy with a 3-run home run to make it 9-5 #Giants. #Marlins still have a long way to go and needs more inning from #BullpenFromHell.
