NEW YORK -

 Alex Sanabia won for the first time in more than two years and the Miami Marlins gave Mike Redmond his first victory as a major league manager, beating the New York Mets 7-5 Friday night.

The Marlins began the day at 0-3 and were the only team in the majors without a win. Sanabia (1-0) had been out of the majors since late in the 2011 season. He pitched six shutout innings, working around six hits, three walks and a hit batter.

Miami took advantage of shortstop Ruben Tejada's error to score five runs in the seventh inning for a 6-0 lead. The Mets rallied and brought the tying run to the plate a couple of times, but couldn't catch the Marlins.
