Lowe, LA maintain Loft-y goals
Streaking Dodgers stay hot

Series at a glance:
Sanchez lacks support
Anibal Sanchez wasn't at his best, but he still allowed just two earned runs in six innings. That wasn't enough, with Florida's offense scoring its lone runs on sacrifice flies. Alfredo Amezaga and Hanley Ramirez combined for four of the Marlins' six hits.
