ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ Dontrelle Willis allowed two runs in
seven innings, Jeremy Hermida and Aaron Boone homered on
consecutive pitches in the sixth and the Florida Marlins beat the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays 7-2 tonight.
Willis (6-3) stopped a personal two-game losing streak. He gave
up five hits, three walks and struck out seven. The left-hander had
two complete games _ a rain-shortened five-inning win in 2003 and
an eight-inning loss last year _ in his only other two starts
against Tampa Bay.
Hermida hit a two-run homer off Jae Seo (2-4) to give the
Marlins a 5-1 lead.
