JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Miguel Cabrera homered among his three hits and had four RBIs, but Venezuela, playing hours after the death of President Hugo Chavez, lost to the Miami Marlins 6-5 on Tuesday night in a tuneup for the World Baseball Classic.
Cabrera's two-out, two-run homer down the left-field line off Jordan Smith in the seventh gave Venezuela a 5-3 lead. The reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner also had two doubles, including one that scored two runs in a three-run first.
Former Marlins right-hander Carlos Zambrano started with two scoreless innings for Venezuela. Henderson Alvarez then retired his Miami teammates 1-2-3 in the third.
Wade LeBlanc, competing for the fifth spot in Miami's rotation, gave up three runs - two earned - and seven hits in 2 2-3 innings.
