Starter Ricky Nolasco picked up his seventh win of the season, his fifth in his last six outings, striking out a career-high 12 batters in 8 2/3 innings of work. And after scoring just four runs in the previous three games, the Marlins offense produced a pair of three-run homers courtesy of Wes Helms in the second inning and Mike Jacobs in the fifth.
