HOUSTON -- The Miami Marlins know what they need to do to get back into the National League post-season picture. Authentic Christopher Tanev Jersey . With timely hitting and good pitching, the Marlins are one win away from sweeping the slumping Houston Astros. Giancarlo Stanton hit a three-run double, and Jordany Valdespin added a two-run home run to power the Marlins to a 7-3 victory over Houston on Saturday night. Stantons double in the second inning broke a 2-2 tie. Christian Yelich had two hits, including an RBI single as part of the four-run frame. Valdespin hit his first homer of the season in the ninth off Chad Qualls. The Marlins have won six of seven. "To come here and to keep going and to keep competing and keeping that good feeling going, Im very happy," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "Were going to be tested. A lot of good teams left to play and a lot of ground to make up, but Im very happy with where were at right now." Stanton said a sweep against the Astros would put the Marlins in a good position. "We have to get sweeps in series like this," Stanton said. "You always say you sweep guys like this, and you stay afloat against the guys on the top. A sweep is three games gained instead of one." The Marlins were able to capitalize on starter Jarred Cosarts wildness when he walked the bases loaded in the second, setting up the run-scoring hits by Yelich and Stanton. "Its just who is able to capitalize the most is who is able to stay afloat and win games," Stanton said. "You arent always going to be able to capitalize, but the more you do, the more you are going to be in good shape. Weve been doing all right lately." Tom Koehler (7-7) gave up three runs and nine hits with two strikeouts in five innings. "I walked that tight rope that whole day and fortunately enough, I stayed balanced enough to get through five," Koehler said. "I handed it over to the bullpen who did a great job." Jason Castro had two hits, including a two-run home run in the first that put the Astros up 2-1. Jose Altuve added three hits for Houston, which lost its fourth straight and fell a season-high 20 games below .500 (42-62). Cosart (9-7) allowed five runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and four walks in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander has struggled in July, allowing 21 runs in 21 1-3 innings over four starts. "Tale of two innings, obviously," Cosart said. "Pretty self-explanatory. Its the same as always when I have a bad game. I just didnt throw strikes." Carter cut the lead to 5-3 with an RBI single in the fifth. Casey McGehee gave Miami a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first. Houston left runners in scoring position in each inning from the second to the seventh. Altuve and Marwin Gonzalez started the third with singles before Carter lined a ball to Koehler that went off the right-handers back and was caught by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria. Koehler struck out Castro and Matt Dominguez to end the inning. "It was kind of weird," Koehler said of the out. "It used my back as a ramp to get to (Hechavarria). We looked, and after icing my shoulder, my shoulder was redder than my back. There is not really proof that I got hit, which is good." The Astros went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position against Koehler and finished 1 for 12 overall. "We had some opportunities and, you know, had the right guys out there," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "We hit one line drive off the pitchers back or shoulder and the short stop catches the ball. Its just one of those things. We had some opportunities. We were just not able to get the big hit." NOTES: After the game, Houston placed RHP Josh Zeid on the disabled list with a left foot injury. The Astros also optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Oklahoma City to work on his fastball command, Porter said. LHP Brett Oberholtzer will start in Peacocks place Monday against Oakland. ... Houston RHP Collin McHugh will be activated from the disabled list to start on Sunday. McHugh, 4-8 with a 3.28 ERA, has been out since July 7 because of an injury to his right middle finger. McHugh, who last started in the majors on July 6 in a loss at the Los Angeles Angels, threw five innings in a rehab outing Tuesday for Oklahoma City. Miami will start RHP Jacob Turner, 3-6 with a 6.03 ERA. ... Gonzalez returned to the lineup after missing Fridays game because of soreness in his right hamstring. Authentic Brendan Leipsic Jersey .

The England international had both goals in TFCs season-opening 2-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn has been waiting for his team to put together a full game. The Magic did just that against a tired Lakers squad. Tobias Harris led the way with 28 points and a career-high 20 rebounds in Orlandos 114-105 victory over Los Angeles on Friday night. He had a lot of help. Arron Afflalo had 23 points and six assists. Jameer Nelson had 22 points and six assists. Rookie Victor Oladipo had 15 points, 12 rebounds and five assists as the Magic outscored the Lakers 59-40 in the final 21 minutes of the game. "We havent been great in the third quarter the last few games, but this time, we took a punch and didnt wilt," Vaughn said. "Our first unit responded and the guys who came in off the bench held up their end of the bargain. That was good to see." Harris performance was worth seeing. The third-year pro is starting to show he can contribute something more than offence to a team that needs a little more of everything from him to be competitive. Harris had 19 defensive rebounds as the Magic limited the Lakers to just two second-chance points in the game. "Its good to go out there and just collect misses and push it up the court," Harris said. "Just being in the right spots, making the right rotations and helping my teammates is the biggest thing for our team." The Lakers looked good for the half of the game, but their energy level dissipated after taking a 65-55 lead with 9:27 left in the third period. They were outscored 36-15 the rest of that quarter and never made a serious run in the final period. This was their sixth road game in 10 days and the travel showed. "The guys wanted to do it, but they didnt have the legs," Los Angeles Coach Mike DAntonio said. "We ran out of gas and when youre tired, youre not real smart. Thats what happened tonight. We didnt play with a lot of poise." Pau Gasol led Los Angeles with 21 points and 10 rebounds. The Lakers got 19 pointss and 14 assists from Kendall Marshall, 17 points from Jodie Meeks and 16 from Nick Young. Authentic Derrick Pouliot Jersey. "I came here saying Im going to be tired today and I was," Young said. "Weve been fighting this whole road trip, but I can honestly say this is one of the games we let up a bit. We just lost that focus." The Magic held the Lakers scoreless the last 3:30 of the third quarter, scoring the final 11 points to take a 91-80 lead into the fourth quarter. The Lakers scored the first six points of the fourth period to cut the deficit to 91-86, but that was close as they would come. Orlando responded with an 8-0 run and never let the Lakers closer than six points the rest of the game. Harris had a double-double in the first half with 17 points and 13 rebounds, but it wasnt enough to give Orlando an advantage. Los Angeles countered with Marshall, who handed out 10 assists and scored seven points when the Lakers took advantage of shoddy Magic ballhandling to squeeze out a 55-53 lead. Los Angeles converted on all seven Orlando turnovers, getting 14 points off the giveaways and shooting 46.7 per cent for the half. When the Magic did hold on to the ball, they didnt have much problem with the porous Lakers defence. After shooting 60 per cent in the first period, and still trailing 32-28, Orlando used a 13-0 run to overtake the Lakers. Kyle OQuinns slam dunk off a feed from Oladipo ended the run and gave Orlando a 43-38 advantage. Gasol finally ended the Lakers drought, scoring on a pair of driving layups and Meeks followed with a 3-pointer to help the Lakers go in at halftime with a 55-53 lead. NOTES: The Lakers have given up 100 points or more in 11 straight games. ... Magic C Nikola Vucevic missed his 10th straight game with a concussion. ... The Magic outrebounded Los Angeles 51-40.
