Kurt Suzuki drove in the winning run in the 11th inning, and the Oakland Athletics withstood four home runs by Florida to beat the Marlins 7-6 on Friday night.
Suzuki hit a two-run homer and a two-run double before driving in pinch-runner Jack Hannahan with a double off Florida's Doug Waechter. Suzuki's five RBIs matched a career-high.
Dan Uggla hit his 22nd and 23rd home runs of the season for the Marlins, who rallied from a 4-0 deficit to force extra innings. It was the fourth multihomer game of the season for Uggla and the ninth of his career.
Eric Chavez opened the 11th for Oakland with a long fly ball that left fielder Luis Gonzalez dropped at the wall. Hannahan replaced Chavez on second before Suzuki lined a 1-2 pitch off Waechter (2-3) down the right field line to knock in the winning run.
Hanley Ramirez and Jeremy Hermida also homered for the Marlins, who upped their majors-leading total to 110 but lost in their first trip to Oakland.
Andrew Brown (1-0), the seventh A's pitcher, threw two shutout innings after Florida hit two home runs off Oakland closer Huston Street to force extra innings.
Suzuki and Carlos Gonzalez hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth. It was the first career homer for Gonzalez, who was acquired by Oakland in the offseason as part of a multiplayer deal that sent staff ace Dan Haren to Arizona.
Uggla homered off A's starter Rich Harden in the sixth and hit another off Street in the ninth, passing Philadelphia's Chase Utley for the major league lead. Hermida also homered off Street, who blew a save for only the third time in 16 opportunities this season.
Florida starter Mark Hendrickson allowed four runs on seven hits in 6 1-3 innings but avoided his fourth straight loss thanks to the Marlins' power surge.
Harden, who was trying to become Oakland's first pitcher since 2001 to win his first five decisions, gave up five hits and had five strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander moved into 20th place on Oakland's career strikeout list with 503.
