Marlins get manager Mike Redmond his first win
Marlins pick up first win of the 2013 season in 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.
