Marlins Snap 11-Game Losing Streak By Beating The Angels, 5-2

MIAMI (AP)  — The Florida Marlins’ new 80-year-old manager still has the winning touch.

Jack McKeon earned his first victory since coming out of retirement when the Marlins broke an 11-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Javier Vazquez and five relievers gave up 13 hits and the Angels had at least one hit in every inning, but they went 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position.

Gaby Sanchez hit his 13th home run and Hanley Ramirez had his first multi-hit game since May 21 for the Marlins, who improved to 2-19 in June. They are 1-1 since McKeon took over Monday as interim manager for the rest of the season.

For a change, the breaks went the Marlins’ way. They had three infield hits, while the Angels hit into two double plays.
