Marlins fall 8-7 to Class-A Greensboro

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Jorge Cantu had a two-run homer and an RBI single for the Florida Marlins on Saturday, but it wasn't enough.

Jose Torres homered to tie the score in the ninth and slid into first to beat out a two-out RBI single in the 10th, leading the Greensboro Grasshoppers to an 8-7 exhibition victory over their parent club.

Kyle Skipworth had a two-run homer in the second for Greensboro, which added two runs in the third on Scott Cousins' single and Kyle Jensen's double.

Cantu and Dan Uggla had RBI singles to lead Florida's four-run fourth. Florida scored three more in the fifth on a two-out solo homer from Cameron Maybin and Cantu's two-run shot.

Greensboro got two runs in the eighth on back-to-back two-out doubles from Carlos Paulino and Taylor Krick.

Sandy Rosario was the winning pitcher, and Brian Lawrence took the loss.
