Ricky Nolasco was on Saturday night against the Astros, and the result was a complete game for the starter, and the Marlins fourth victory in a row.

Ricky allowed one run on seven hits through nine innings, and struck out eight. The lone run he allowed was on an RBI double by Brian Bogusevic in the seventh.

The Marlins' lineup supported their pitcher nicely with six runs off of Brett Myers in his 4 1/3 innings of work, capped off by a three-run triple by LoMo, who would go 3-for-4 in the game, collectin 3 RBI.

Emilio Bonifacio led off the bottom of the first with a walk, stole second, and moved to third on Omar Infante's groundout. After Myers hit Gaby with a pitch, Hanley's RBI groundout plated Boni to put the Fish up 1-0. 

The Marlins scored again in the second when John Buck hit his tenth long ball of the season, a solo shot to left field to make it 2-0.

In the fifth, the Marlins added four more runs. Boni singled with one out, Infante reached on an error, and Gaby walked to load the bases for Hanley. The shortstop collected his second RBI of the game without getting a hit, walking in a run to put the Fish on top 3 to zip. Logan Morrison was up next, and he cleared the bases with his second triple of the season, and the Fish grabbed a 6-0 lead. 

The Marlins are on a roll, and go for the four-game sweep Sunday afternoon.
