Anderson’s 3-Run HR Helps Marlins Beat Padres, 12-7

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — Scoring runs was not a problem for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.

Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer in the first inning and the Marlins went on to a 12-7 win over the San Diego Padres, who lost their fourth consecutive game.

The Padres (45-49) fell four games under .500 for the first time this season.

Harold Ramirez had two doubles, two RBIs and two runs scored. Garrett Cooper hit his 11th homer and a two-run single, and Starlin Castro had a bases-loaded triple to make it 11-3 in the sixth.

Jordan Yamamoto (4-0) struggled early and needed 99 pitches to get through five innings, but he gave up only two earned runs.
