Hechavarria has 7 RBIs, Marlins rout Halladay 14-2
Adeiny Hechavarria hit a grand slam and a bases-loaded triple off beleaguered Philadelphia Phillies starter Roy Halladay, driving in seven runs for the Miami Marlins in their 14-2 victory Sunday.
Kevin Slowey (1-2) pitched seven shutout innings for his first win since September 2010. He allowed two hits while striking out seven and walking two.
The right-hander had been winless in 22 major league appearances, including 15 starts. His previous victory came on Sept. 18, 2010, as a starter for the Minnesota Twins.
Justin Ruggiano homered twice off Philadelphia relievers, and rookie Marcell Ozuna went 3 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs for the Marlins, who set a season high for runs. The output by the league's worst offense was surprising - especially against Halladay (2-4).
