MIAMI (AP) — Hits were difficult to come by in Miami’s first two regular season games. The early offensive malaise finally ended Saturday night.Miguel Rojas and Martin Prado each had three hits Babe Ruth Jersey , and the Marlins won for the first time this season, beating the Colorado Rockies 7-3.Limited to a total of six hits in a pair of losses to Colorado earlier this week, the Marlins broke loose for 16 hits against starter Tyler Anderson and four relievers.“We put things together today,” Rojas said. “We’re not going to depend on the three-run homer. That’s for sure. But if it happens, it will be great.”It wasn’t even the biggest loss of the day for Colorado. First baseman Daniel Murphy, signed to a two-year deal during the offseason, said after the game he had broken the index finger on his left hand and is out indefinitely.Miami’s Lewis Brinson, who scored twice, Rossell Herrera and Chad Wallach each had two hits. Rojas doubled twice and drove in three runs.“A lot of firsts tonight, we got our first win out of the way ... kis-jersey ,” Miami manager Don Mattingly said. “We had a lot of guys who didn’t have hits, they had hits. There is a lot of size in that room right now.”Pablo Lopez (1-0) allowed five hits and three runs and struck out a career-high seven in 5 1/3 innings. He was lifted after retiring Trevor Story on a flyball that ended an 11-pitch at-bat.“Tough guy, great hitter,” Lopez said of Story. “He has a good approach, smart. It’s a battle. I tried to mix all my pitches. I gave everything I had. I had my defense behind me. It felt really good winning that little battle there.”Lopez’s performance followed his solid spring in which he went 3-0 with an 0.90 ERA in 20 2/3 innings.Five Marlins relievers kept Colorado scoreless through the final 3 2/3 innings.Rojas and Herrera capitalized on Anderson’s first pitches with hits that keyed a three-run fourth for a 5-2 lead. Rojas’ double to left center scored two and Herrera followed with an RBI single.Anderson (0-1) gave up five runs, nine hits and struck out four in five innings.Miami added two runs in the seventh on Prado’s RBI single and Curtis Granderson’s safety squeeze bunt single that scored Brinson.“The big blow was the first-pitch fastball to Rojas for the double that scored a couple of runs,” Colorado manager Bud Black said.WEB GEMSNot lost in the Marlins offensive output were standout defensive plays by 3B Brian Anderson and OF Brinson. Anderson dived for Chris Iannetta’s hard grounder down the line, reached his feet and threw high to first, where Prado leaped and tagged Iannetta out to start the fifth. Iannetta was robbed again in the eighth, when Brinson dove and grabbed his sinking liner to center.TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: Murphy injured the finger while diving to stop a sharp grounder in the fourth inning of Friday’s game against Miami. Although Murphy remained in the game and had his first hit as a Rockie in the ninth Freddie Freeman Jersey , swelling on his finger worsened overnight. Murphy got X-rays on Saturday and will visit a hand specialist Monday.Marlins: P Jose Urena expects to make his second start against the New York Mets on Tuesday as he recovers from the line drive he took behind his left leg off a hit ball by Dahl in the second inning of the season opener Thursday.UP NEXTRHP Jon Gray will start the series finale for the Rockies on Sunday while the Marlins will go with RHP Sandy Alcantara. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland will have to take its bubbly on the road.Kyle Gibson allowed one run over 7 1/3 innings, Jake Cave hit a two-run homer and the Minnesota Twins beat the Athletics 5-1 Sunday, preventing Oakland from clinching an AL wild-card berth in its last regular-season home game.“I think it was a little disappointing,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “A lot of times we put on our best shows late in games, unfortunately it didn’t happen today.”Oakland leads Tampa Bay by 7½ games and needs one win or a Rays loss to clinch its first playoff berth in four years. The A’s remained 1½ games behind the New York Yankees, who have clinched a wild-card berth, and fell 4½ games back of AL West-leading Houston.After going 50-31 for its best home record since 2013, the A’s finish with three-game series at Seattle and the Los Angeles Angels.

Trevor May struck out Ramon Laureano with two on in the eighth and pitched around a one-out walk in the ninth for his first big league save.Minnesota finished 29-52 on the road.Oakland won two of three despite going 0 for 21 with runners in scoring position in the series, including seven at-bats Sunday.Trevor Cahill (6-4) allowed five runs — three earned — and five hits in 3 1/3 innings.Cave hit a two-run homer in the first, but Olson cut the lead in half in the second with his 28th homer.Minnesota added three runs in the fourth after Robbie Grossman singled with one out and Tyler Austin hit a potential double-play grounder to third baseman Matt Chapman, who threw the ball to the left of second baseman Chad Pinder and into right field for his 19th error.“I was worried about the catch and I didn’t pick up my target,” Chapman said. “I think I had a little more time, I might have rushed my throw because I wanted to turn the double play. It was my fault that three runs scored so it doesn’t really feel good.”Max Kepler hit an RBI single, Ehire Adrianza chased Cahill with a run-scoring double and Chris Gimenez greeted Shawn Kelley with a sacrifice fly.“For the last couple of years we’ve seen people celebrate when we’re in town,” Gibson said. “To be able to finish off the season and not have to watch anybody celebrate, kind of nice.”FAN BASEA crowd of 35,754 raised Oakland’s season total at home to 1 Bob Uecker Jersey ,527,588.FRANCHISE MARKJoe Mauer was 2 for 4.
