(Newser) – Hanley Ramirez raced home on a grounder to short with the infield in to score the game's first run and the Florida Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-0 in 10 innings Friday. With one out and the infield playing for a play at the plate, Wes Helms hit a ground ball to shortstop J.J. Hardy but Ramirez beat Hardy's throw home.

Cody Ross then added a sacrifice fly to center and Mike Rabelo had a run-scoring single off Guillermo Mota, who came on in the 10th. Kevin Gregg (3-0) pitched the final two innings for Florida, which won for the first time since July 5 at San Diego when scoring three runs or less. Milwaukee has scored one run the past two games.
