Kelly Johnson hit a pair of three-run homers Monday and the Tampa Bay Rays handed the Miami Marlins their sixth straight loss, 10-6.

Johnson also doubled, singled and stole a base. He has 24 RBIs in 21 games this month.

Johnson homered off rookie Jose Fernandez (2-3) in a six-run second inning, then broke open the game by hitting his 10th home run of the season in the eighth against A.J. Ramos.
