SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ricky Nolasco remained unbeaten, Giancarlo Stanton drew a bases-loaded walk to force in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning and the Miami Marlins beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 Sunday for their season-best sixth straight victory.
Miami lost eight of nine before beginning its winning streak. The Marlins have swept consecutive three-game series on the road for the second time in team history.
Stanton's walk keyed a four-run eighth. The slugger saw eight pitches from Andrew Cashner and all of them registered at least 101 mph.
Nolasco (4-0) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings to tie Dontrelle Willis for the club record with his 68th career win.
