MIAMI (AP) - Byung-Hyun Kim survived a 37-pitch first inning and had a career-high ten strikeouts as the Florida Marlins held off the Colorado Rockies 4-3.
Kim is 6-and-5. He needed 126 pitches to make it through five and a-third innings. He walked six, hit a batter, threw a wild pitch and allowed the Rockies to steal four bases.
Three relievers combined for two and two-thirds hitless innings. Kevin Gregg allowed an RBI single to Garrett Atkins in the ninth before striking out Yorvit Torrealba with the bases loaded to complete the victory for his 22nd save in 24 chances.
Florida's Miguel Cabrera had three hits, including his 26th homer.
