Rox rally falls short against Marlins

DENVER (AP) - Anibal Sanchez tossed eight strong innings to win his first game in more than two months and the Florida Marlins held on to beat the Colorado Rockies 6-5 Tuesday night.

Mike Stanton homered, Bryan Petersen had two triples and Leo Nunez earned his 33rd save for the Marlins, who had to sweat out another ninth-inning rally by Colorado.

A night after he hit a walk-off three-run homer, Jason Giambi hit a pinch-hit two-run homer off Nunez with two outs in the ninth. Ty Wigginton followed with a single before Dexter Fowler popped out to end the game.

Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez and Seth Smith also homered for the Rockies.

Sanchez (7-6) was sharp in earning his first victory since beating Arizona on June 10.
