PHOENIX (AP) - The Florida Marlins scored a team-record 10 runs in the eighth inning at Arizona on Thursday night.
The avalanche helped the Marlins overcome a 7-0 fifth inning deficit and propelled them to a 14-7 lead.
Florida sent 14 batters to the plate against three Diamondbacks relievers - Juan Gutierrez, Scott Schoeneweis and Blaine Boyer.
After pinch-hitter Ross Gload drove in a run with a fielder's choice grounder, pinch-hitter Brett Carroll hit a three-run homer of Schoeneweis to give Florida an 8-7 lead.
Dan Uggla, Cody Ross and Jeremy Hermida followed with RBI singles, and John Baker drove in a run with a double. A run scored on a passed ball, and the final run came in on Gload's second fielder's choice grounder.
